  3. Question related to upgrading Windows 10

    Sir,

    I have reserved Windows 10 for my Laptop.

    I have following issues:

    1. After lapse of 1 year of free trial of Windows 10, is it mandatory to buy Windows 10?

    2. For some reason/s, if I am not satisfied with Windows 10, can I go back to Windows 7 (SP1) anytime before 1 year?

    It's not hard to understand why there is confusion regarding this issue. Microsoft has never given an OS away for free before and people naturally figure there must be a "catch" to it. *Biggrin

    I guess it depends if you are a "cup is half empty", or a "cup is half full" kind of person

    This is really no different from the situation with Windows 8. When Windows 8 was first released, Microsoft offered a low-cost upgrade for a period of time. Those upgrades you purchased at that low cost are still valid even today, and you don't have to pay full price if you want to reinstall Windows 8 today.

    It's exactly the same thing with Windows 10, except that instead of it being low cost, it's free.

    The one difference I see is that with Windows 8, you were upgraded to the professional version. But with the "free" Windows 10 upgrade, you are upgraded to the same version you are currently running. I think it would be nice if Microsoft offered the same special price break to those like me who would pay $40 to upgrade W7 Home Premium to Windows 10 Professional.

    What if after the 1 year freebie of Windows 10, MS comes up with new OS (let us call it windows 11 or some fancy name), yes, upfront it is windows 10 is free, then the new OS will have to be purchased. They got to make selling software their main business.

    What if.. what if... what if........ We can play that game all day long, what if the moon is made of green cheese?

    Microsoft has said that Windows 10 is the last branded edition of Windows, all future updates will still be branded Windows 10.

    This is big business, nothing personal, if MS could not keep their words, then always windows 8 to fall on.
