Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for the initial first year of launch. The free upgrade policy accounts for current Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users, including Windows Phone 8.1, too.
Windows 10 comes with some handy features that we wanted to see in the OS, however, it can’t pay me to quit Mac OS X. Starting from the base, Windows 10 features two start screen modes: Mini mode and Expanded mode. Windows 10 Devices can automatically switch between mini mode and expanded mode depending up on the input device attached, say, Expanded mode for touch screen and mini mode for keyboard. These transitions require instant user approval.
Microsoft also added a notification tray on the right-hand side of the desktop, offering a handful of shortcuts to apps and settings. The updated build for Windows 10 arrives next week.
