Can I upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10 for free?

Date: 01 Oct 2014    Group: Operating Systems    Category: Windows OS   

I just heard Microsoft has announced Windows 10. I recently invested on a laptop that runs on Windows 8. Microsoft surprised me with the new announcement of launching a new OS just after the Windows 8 was introduced.

Is there anyway I can upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10 without paying any money? If Microsoft doesn't offer a free upgrade, I am sure your new OS also will be a disaster just like Windows 8.

Want to know how to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10? Worried about the compatibility issues between Windows 10 and previous versions? Follow this thread to learn more.

Officially, Microsoft did not release any price/licensing information for its new OS Windows 10. According to Indonesian new website "", Indonesia Microsoft president has 'confirmed' that Windows 10 will be the free upgrade to all users of Windows 8. We have to wait some more time to get official announcement from Microsoft.

I agree with your last words. Windows 10 is the fat apology from Microsoft. Most of us spend money on Windows 8, so to compensate for that Microsoft has to offer free upgrade. This time we can an OS like Windows 7 that is user friendly and more stable. Microsoft planning to roll out full version of windows 10 in spring of 2015.
