Windows 10 Will Be A Free Upgrade

So here’s the key news from today’s Windows 10 media briefing: existing Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Phone customers will be able to upgrade for free.

The free upgrade will apply for a year from when Windows 10 launches, and will run for the life of the product. For all the Windows 10 news from today, check our full report.
