Microsoft is currently rolling out free upgrade of Windows 10 to some of its users. But if you haven’t received that following notification yet then you have to get it the old fashioned way. The company is maintaining status quo on single license pricing. If you’ve got an outdated version of Windows (anything older than 7) or if you want to setup your own PC, Microsoft’s latest release will cost $119. That’s for Windows 10 Home, and the Pro tier will be priced higher at $199. Windows 10 Home will be perfect for normal users but if they desire something which is exclusive for Windows 10 Professional edition then they can step up later by purchasing a $99 Windows 10 Pro Pack.
The prices for Windows 10 are pretty much same to Windows 8. Microsoft plans to offer Windows 10 single licenses both online and in retail stores. The major operating system update is slated to launch on July 29th.
For further details on which version users will be upgrading to; basically for Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home or Windows 7 Home Premium, Microsoft will give your machine an upgrade to Windows 10 Home. Owners with Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate will get Windows 10 Professional. Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 with Bing users will get Windows 10 Home, while Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 8.1 Pro for Students owners will be upgraded to Windows 10 Professional. As Microsoft has previously announced, owners of Windows RT devices like the Surface RT and Surface 2 won’t get a free upgrade to Windows 10, although they are supposed to get some kind of update that will add some of Windows 10’s features.
