    It also seems that they will offer Windows 10 free if you're already running Windows 8.1 or Windows 7. You just have to get Windows 10 within the first year after it's released.

    No Way! does that mean with all my current windows 7 licenses I could get Windows 10 for each for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...... I like the sound of that... but really would Microsoft sacrifice that much money? we are talking millions of dollars...

    There is also an article that claims Powerpoint, Word, and Excel will come pre-installed with Windows 10 computers...


    http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2015/01/21/windows10-what-consumers-can-expect/22105739/


    "Incidentally, PowerPoint is one of the so-called "universal apps" that will function across all kinds of Windows 10 devices, from computers to tablets. Along with its touch-capable Office siblings, Word and Excel, it will be pre-installed on Windows 10 computers."

    The reason for the Free upgrade is so you need ? to upgrade the to the new office. Not so sure about the free upgrade for that from what I have read and not sure if the old office versions will still work with the win10 OS, so interesting times ahead. Win 10 looks like what win 8.0 should have been at release.
