As we step into first of June 2015, the sound of the celebration on the launch of Windows 10 has become louder and clearer. After the continuous development from alpha, closed beta to open beta, there has been a variety of response towards the latest Windows 10 build. This time, we’re going to teach you how to get to upgrade to Windows 10 for free!
First of all, it is mandatory to download the KB 3035583 from Windows Update available on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 and above. Upon the update, you will receive a small pop up menu asking you whether you want to upgrade your Windows version to Windows 10 once it is readily available for download. This offer is currently free for a limited time and the system offered is completely free! No trial no fees! 3GB of space is required for the download before installation.
Yay! The iconic start menu is back!
The new Windows 10 will be featuring Cortana search which act as a voice assistant to search the web. Upon successful reservation (after following the steps), you will be notified that you will be receive the upgrade for Windows 10 once it is readily available for download. The new Windows 10 is likely to push more features on its Windows Store and hopefully Microsoft did it well this time.
Ahoy mateys! If you are a pirate of any version of Windows, you are not eligible for this official upgrade via Windows update. However, you still have the option to purchase the official Windows 10 via NewEgg or other authorized distributor for Windows 10.
The Windows 10 Professional is currently priced at US$149.99 while the Windows 10 is priced at US$109.99. It is roughly estimated that Windows 10 will cost at RM550 and Rm 400 respectively. However, since Microsoft stated that Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we could expect more variation of Windows 10 to surface anytime soon.
