Microsoft still doesn’t want to say what Windows 10 will eventually cost you

Microsoft will let current Windows users who are rocking at least a version of Windows 7 on their computers upgrade free of charge to Windows 10 in the first year after the new operating system launches. However, the company still doesn’t want to say what it’ll cost to get Windows 10 after that – or anything else related to pricing schemes in the future for following updates. As CNET reports, Microsoft is more interested in having as many people jump on Windows 10, and it’s doing so by making this major OS update available as a free download to millions of users. More →

Don’t get too excited about running Windows 10 on your phone anytime soon

Microsoft will release its ambitious Windows 10 operating system at some point this summer, but only desktops, laptops and tablets will get it at first, The Verge reports. Smartphone users currently on Windows Phone 8.1 looking forward to receive the Windows 10 for phones update will have to wait longer, the company has confirmed, as the launch schedule for the mobile version doesn’t coincide with the desktop release.

You can try the new Windows 10 Start Menu right now for free

Windows 8 was an absolute disaster. Microsoft’s attempt to bridge the gap between desktop computers and tablets was a failure, and it ended up driving customers crazy. In fact, it was such a disaster that several top Microsoft executives are no longer with the company. Now, with Windows 10, Microsoft will try to undo much of the damage it has done over the past few years.

And from the looks of things, the company is off to a good start. More →

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

It’s been a relatively slow start for the Xbox One in 2015, with hardly any exclusives to speak of save for Screamride and Ori and the Blind Forest. That’s not to say that the PS4 has been outpacing Microsoft’s console by much, but if the Xbox One is going to stand a chance of taking the lead this year, it’s going to need to have a big E3.

According to Phil Spencer, that’s exactly what Microsoft has in store. More →

Windows 10 release timing revealed by one of Microsoft’s key partners

Windows 10 is easily one of Microsoft’s most important launches in years, as the company looks to regain the ground it lost with Windows 8. At this point it’s beyond safe to say that the company’s current desktop operating system is a flop, with many consumers and businesses alike doing everything they can to avoid it. Windows 10 dials back many of the controversial visual changes we saw in Windows 8, however, and the press has had plenty of good things to say about it thus far.

Now, we finally know almost exactly when the final version of Windows 10 will be released to the public thanks to a slip-up from one of Microsoft’s key partners. More →
