Might be worth searching, here:
Thanks Katzy that looks to be very useful.
I just got an invite to apply for a free version of Windows 10. Its not out yet but when it is, apparently I can download it for free.
All people who are running windows 7, and windows 8, and 8.1 can get a free download from Microsoft starting July the 29th. it is a 3 gig download so
have a decent broadband. I will download it and then burn it to an ISO file to put in on a disc. This offer from Microsoft will last for one year
There will be no further issues of Windows 11 or 12 etc as Windows 10 will over the course of years receive a constant stream of updates, so in around 5 years time etc it could be a totally different beast than its original system today
Caveat= people on XP or Vista will have to purchase the new system around $110, whatever that is in proper money jmb
When I looked at a Windows laptop at Office Max, I was told I would get a free upgrade to Windows 10 when 10 comes out. He said that it would have some resemblances to XP, to appeal to people who didn't like the changes in Win 7 and Win 8.
Yeah, the free offer came with the last update. You have to register to get it.
Microsoft's last gasp/last hurrah before it fades into the digital world's dust bin of irrelevance (at least for the home user; I don't think the mercantile world can ever live without it). After all, consistent long term survey stats show that most people use their PC's OSs (and lately phones) to play games (I have no idea how that thesis can be proved, OR disproved).
Just a question... How are Microsoft gonna make money, if there'll be no more versions of Winderz? Paid-for updates? Is the rumour that it was gonna go open-source true?
