If by any chance, you’ve been holding up until the last conceivable minute to choose whether or not you need to move up to Windows 10, that last conceivable minute is all of a sudden right around the bend. Microsoft reminded Windows clients in a blog entry today that the free Windows 10 upgrade offer is going to end on July 30th, and soon thereafter the cost for a full form of Windows 10 Home will bounce to $119 and hence upgrading from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 will cost you minimum $119.The free upgrade offer was a bold gambit for Microsoft — previously, nothing could get in the way of that tasty OS revenue. But, after Windows 8 failed to entice developers and consumers, the company needed to do something drastic.
The free upgrade offer was indeed a bold decision for Microsoft. As we know that Windows 8 actually failed to entice developers and consumers. So, It was highly expected from Microsoft to do something drastic. And it seems to have paid off:
Microsoft reported that Windows 10 is now running on 300 million devices around the world (that’s up from 200 million in January). Among other notable stats, Cortana has answered more than 6 billion questions so far, people have spent over 63 billion minutes in the Edge browser just in March, gamers have put in over 9 billion hours of gameplay and the first big update and the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, is scheduled to roll out over the summer, free of charge.
