Windows 10 upgrade free for owners of Windows 7 and 8.1

Fresh news from Microsoft’s painfully aspiration Windows 10 briefing. Owners of Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be eligible for a free upgrade to Microsoft’s upcoming OS.

Windows 10

The free upgrade will be available throughout the first year of Windows 10’s life.

That’s a pretty big deal—Microsoft no doubt realizes that people are hanging on happily to Windows 7, but the chance of a free upgrade could prove tempting.

For PC gamers, it’ll mean free access to DirectX 12, which won’t be supported by Windows 7.
