Yesterday Microsoft announced Windows 10 will be released on July 29, 2015. During the first year of its availability, everyone with a legit copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will be able to upgrade for free to Microsoft's Windows 10.
Until now the software giant stayed quiet about the retail price of Windows 10 but now the company has broken the silence and announced that it will be $119 for Windows 10 Home and $199 for Windows 10 Pro. There will also be an upgrade version to switch from Home to Pro, this will cost $99.
The easiest way to get Windows 10 is to upgrade for free. You may also purchase a copy of Windows 10 if you decide not to upgrade, or if you need to purchase a copy for other reasons like installing on a PC you built yourself. The suggested retail prices for Windows 10 in the U.S. are the same as Windows 8.1.
Windows 10 Home is an estimated retail price of $119. Windows 10 Pro is an estimated retail price of $199. And Windows 10 Pro Pack, which enables you to upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro, is an estimated retail price of $99. All these are available in stores or online.
