Microsoft Windows 10 Bombshell: It’s Free For Everyone

23 Jun

There has been a huge amount of interest in Windows 10, especially so in recent weeks as we near the 29th July launch day. The biggest question, and it’s one that hasn’t been answered particularly clearly by Microsoft, is how to get it and who can get it for free. The latter just became a little clearer today.

Genuine Windows 7 and Windows 8 users will get Windows 10 for free, although you need to upgrade within 12 months of Windows 10′s release in July to qualify for this.

Here’s how to reserve your copy and start downloading the upgrade as soon as it’s available

Today, though, Maximum PC spotted that in its Windows blog, Microsoft has dropped a bombshell for anyone currently without an upgradable version of Windows 10 or Windows 8/8.1.
