Microsoft will offer free upgrades to Windows 10 (for the first year)

Windows 10 is an intriguing new operating system. It's being designed to run on a smartphone, a tablet, or a desktop. Microsoft recently announced that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade on PCs running Windows 7 or 8.1 for the first year. Here's how they've positioned it:
Free Upgrade Offer
Great news! We will offer a free upgrade to Windows 10 for qualified new or existing Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices that upgrade in the first year!* And even better: once a qualified Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it up to date for the supported lifetime of the device, keeping it more secure, and introducing new features and functionality over time – for no additional charge. Sign up with your email today, and we will send you more information about Windows 10 and the upgrade offer in the coming months.
I'm certainly eager to see how the final version of Windows 10 blends all the essential features that many of us have grown accustomed to using on a daily basis. The Start Menu. Touch screen navigation. Apps. A preview version of Windows 10 "in-development" called Windows 10 Technical Preview is available for enthusiasts and IT professionals who want to explore the future of computing.
