Windows 10 license price point compared to previous iterations

By Peter Chubb - Jun 2, 2015

For those of you that have been wondering what the price point would be for the Windows 10 license when compared to previous iterations, then we have some good news. Microsoft has finally announced the Windows 10 pricing for those that cannot get the free upgrade, and it is not that different to those previous versions.

If you are upgrading from Windows 7 or 8.1 and have a copy, then your upgrade will be free. However, if you do not have a genuine copy the price will be $119 for the Home version and $199 for Windows 10 Pro. That price of $119 is the same as what you currently have to pay for 8.1.

Please remember that if you do not take advantage of this free upgrade in its first year after its release, which is July 29 by they way, then you will have to pay the full price.

If you would like to upgrade to the Pro pack from the Home addition, then you can do so by paying $99, which isn’t too bad considering the extra benefits. See all versions of Windows 10 here.

One more thing to add, you will be able to purchase your copy of this upcoming operating system either online on the Microsoft website, or at many retail stores.

    I still think $119 is steep, seeing as though my PC is hand-built and will need to get a new
    license. I would have been happier with paying less than $100, but never mind.

    About time Microsoft offered something for free for a change, even if it is for the first year
