Windows 10 Details
It seems no number of Windows 8 upgrade will appease Windows 8 users who are fed up of the operating system. Since its introduction in 2012, it has received a lot of flak for the disappearance of Start button and the new Metro style UI which leaned in favour of touch screen users. The operating system, although stable, had its faults. Due to the stark changes from the legacy of Windows operating systems, users alienated the new OS and preferred the previous OS, Windows 7, over it.
All that might change once the new version of Windows, aka Windows 10, makes rounds. There were wide spread speculation surrounding the upcoming operating system, whose details will entice even the fierce critics. The success of the new operating system can only be confirmed once it is released. However, it is clear that Microsoft has looked into the problems that users had with the Windows 8 design and have made appropriate changes.
The pricing scheme has been a hot topic of discussion for quite a while. While Microsoft remains tight lipped about the pricing scheme of the upcoming operating system, various rumours are afloat. Most significant being a recent leak from the Russian hacker group WZor, which claimed the new coming operating system will be available as a free update for Windows 8 users. Further weight is added to this rumor as Andreas Diantro, President, Microsoft Indonesia, confirmed the same. However, officials at Redmond still refuse to budge.
Windows Pricing Scheme
If this is true, Microsoft will be following the trend set by Apple, which has been delivering successive versions of operating systems for all existing users for some years now. Although Microsoft refuses to mention anything about it, it is rumored that Microsoft already has a tool that will allow users to make the jump in a swift and hassle free manner.
Actual price of the operating system is still not released. It is true that Microsoft wants to move its users away from old and outdated operating systems like Windows XP, so low cost or free price tag would be the best proverbial carrot that Microsoft can hope to dangle. Windows 8 upgrade to the new version would mean that a lot of users who purchased Windows 7 operating system lately have made a huge mistake!
From extended battery backup to the return of the Start button and an all new inbuilt virtual desktop from Windows itself, the Windows 10 preview version has been released and is available for download from the official Microsoft website.
