At the end of August, Windows 10 will be available for purchase. The windows 10 has two versions: Home version and the Pro. Consumers can also pre-order in Amazon for a secured slot.
According to Telegraph UK, “Windows 10 will be available on USB drives for purchase in retail channels shortly after launch on July 29, adding “The suggested retail prices for Windows 10 in the U.S. are the same as Windows 8.1.”
Using USB Drive as a tool for installation is convenient for users with laptops whose DVD drives are non-existent. “Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users can pre-register for their free Windows 10 upgrade by clicking the Windows logo that will have appeared on the right-hand side of their taskbar.”
The advantage of having the Windows 10 first is on the people who registered in the Windows Insider programme.
“The update is free to anyone with a registered version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 who opts in within a year. Anyone who is still on Windows 8 will have to upgrade to Windows 8.1 to qualify for the free upgrade. Anyone using an older version of Windows, or buying a new computer with Windows 10 installed on it, will also have to pay. Microsoft has announced that this will be the “the last version of Windows,” meaning that future updates will be iterative rather than in the form of major software releases”, according to Telegraph UK.
