Windows 10 not as free as you think
With windows 10 being not that far off we are starting to find out prices of these new operating systems. In the past to move to a new version of windows it would cost you up woods of $100 for the cheapest version of windows. Then windows 8.1 came along and allowed users of windows 8 to move to 8.1. Many will still argue that 8.1 was more of an update rather than a new os. Now Microsoft aims to make windows 10 a free upgrade for windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users. Sounds good? Hell yeah it does. But for enterprise users like my self we will still have to foot the bill of a new os as Microsoft has no plans to make their os free to the business user at this point in time. For many people on enterprise licences they will have many devices deployed and to call them all back and change to windows 10 is going to be costly and time consuming. Microsoft is being very generous to the consumer but it appears that the businesses are the ones footing the bill, though Microsoft explained that windows 10 deployment could be done over existing management infostructure but you need to be part of the windows software assurance.
Some times I wish windows did not cost as much and upgrades be free like we see on osx but I guess Microsoft still has time to work that out. But if you are interested to see what all the fuss is about with windows you I recommend you download it and have a play because it’s not that bad.
