Windows 7/8/8.1 users will get a free upgrade to Windows 10. Apart from this, new personal computers and tablets will also now come with this operating system. It is worth noting that the company had introduced the reservation system for the upgrade earlier this month. The company had told that Windows 10 will be released in phases.
This American company has played a big bet with the update release. Through this, the company is trying to address the complaints of customers who have been disappointed by the shortcomings of Windows 8. Microsoft has given place to the good features of Windows 7 and Windows 8 in the new operating system. It will also have some new features. However, Windows 10 also has some drawbacks. It’s not a perfect operating system by any means right now.
Microsoft claims that Windows 10 is the most secure Windows ever. The company says that this operating system will be delivered as a service and will keep updating automatically. Windows 10 is also being said to be the last version of Windows. The new Windows Store and Windows Software Development Kit have also been made available on Wednesday so that developers can develop apps for this operating system to be used on multi-devices.
Soon new users will also be able to buy Windows 10 online and from retail stores. At present, its price in India has not been announced. According to the US, the price of Windows 10 Home is $119 (about Rs 7,500) and the price of Windows 10 Pro is $ 199 (about Rs 12,600).
Microsoft’s Windows 10 Pro Pack will be available for $99 (about Rs 6,300), by purchasing this pack, Windows 10 Home users can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. This means you can upgrade from Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Home without paying, after that if you need the features of the ‘Pro’ version. If so, you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro by spending $99. Suppose you are assembling a new PC and you started the setup by buying Windows 10 Home and later if you change your mind then you can upgrade to the Pro version by paying 99 dollars. However, doing so will cost you $19 more than buying Windows 10 Pro outright.
Speaking at the launch of Windows 10, Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India said, “Windows 10 is the best Windows ever. Starting today it will be available for free upgrade in 190 countries. Will also come with new PCs and tablets as well. It is more personal and productive. It is more safe and secure. It will also be very easy to use and it will be continuously updated. Around 1500 retail stores in India will help consumers upgrade to Windows 10.”
