Good news for Microsoft Windows desktop users. The Redmond based software giant Microsoft will let users upgrade to its latest Windows 10 OS which was unveiled back in October last year and is still in beta. Microsoft said that it would upgrade the desktop OS for the users who are currently using Windows 8.1, Windows 8, or even Windows 7 for free.
It seems like Microsoft is following the footsteps of Apple in upgrading free OS as soon as it is released. This move is clearly meant to entice as many people as possible to make the jump to Windows 10 as soon as possible after it gets released, with Microsoft possibly hoping to have some very nice adoption numbers for the new OS a few months.
Though the software giant haven’t confirmed that what would be its fate after the year will pass. It has been also heard that Microsoft is currently working on an update to Windows 10 for Windows RT, its Windows 8 variation for ARM-based devices. To know more about Microsoft Windows 10, click here.
