Windows 10 – Free Upgrade for One Year

Jan 26, 2015   //   by   //   Microsoft, Software, ZeroPing Blog  //  No Comments

Some interesting news out of Microsoft last week.  During a Windows 10 Live event on January 21st, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade to anyone who is currently on Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.  Which is good news for everyone.  These days Windows PCs are a mish-mash of Windows versions, with some computers still running Windows XP, which isn’t even supported by Microsoft anymore. Furthermore, it allows consumers and businesses to buy PCs as needed and not be worried about being left behind.

I’m curious if this is just Microsoft recognizing that having everyone on a similar platform makes sense in today’s world, or if they’re just admitting they let us down with Windows 8 and this is their way of saying sorry. I guess we’ll find out when Windows 11 comes out.

We’ll be looking forward to getting every one of our clients upgraded.  Hopefully the upgrade processes is as relatively painless as a Mac OS X upgrade.  However even they aren’t perfect.

Allow me to share an interesting article with you from Forbes about why this is a great move for everyone, especially Microsoft.
