Re: Windows free?
Myerson and Belfiore were asked directly at the Windows 10 event if the OS will be free. They declined to discuss pricing. But I expect Windows 7 and 8 users will get Windows 10 for free. In fact, I'll be astonished if at least Win 8 users aren't given a free upgrade. Microsoft will still have licensing options for enterprises-- I don't think they'll give up that money. But for consumers, market share (and the cloud subscriptions and app sales that go with it) will be more important than license costs.
