It says free upgrade for a year. Does that mean free upgrade if you cash in within the first year of W10 being released or does that mean you get a 1 year trial and have to buy it once it is up?

I hope it is the second. Like Office 365 where you can just subscribe to it and have a bunch of licence you can use and upgrade to the new version automatically when it comes out. If they can do that like Office 365, it would be awesome (with a nice pricing of course ).

With Office 365 I have 5 licences of Office (latest version) for PC/Mac + 5 versions for Tablets for me and 4 family members. I can install them, uninstall them whenever I want for 99$ a year.

Oh god please no. I don't want to buy somethine like a Surface Pro and be tied to a $99/sub just to use it.

Well lol yah you are right after thinkinh about it a subscription model the way I decribed it would not work...
I just would love to have a way to do: MS take my WhatEverAmountPerYear$ and then I do not care about my Windows licences/upgrades on all of my devices. Not sure how they can do that on the practical way tho

I wasnt thinking a sub but after 1 year of W10 use you get a popup saying sorry pay us $200 to continue using W10 or you can re install W7/8



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

LOL, glad you came to your sense.

Imagine customers who bought a Windows PC in 2015 got home and found out they had to sign up to a $99/year sub to keep their PC running.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Free upgrade? That's awesome.



Cortana is kinda creepy and this stream is awful!

Ok can we move on from Cortana now?



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Please stop talking about Cortana.
