Was reading a random WIRED article(read it here)and came across the news that Microsoft was planning to offer the Windows 10 upgrade for free. Apparently,the decision was taken to increase the number of customers who otherwise did not want to pay for the licensed versions!!
The article says that Microsoft figured out that having non-paying customers was better than zero customers.
Assuming that a huge number of people do decide to take advantage of the free Microsoft 10 upgrade,how does anyone know for sure that it will remain free?
Maybe a lot of people are aware of this and will switch loyalties after a year of free usage as the subsequent Windows 11 version may require a license purchase.
Will Microsoft reap the benefits of this conversion strategy?
Whatever the outcome,this is indeed an interesting development that all Windows OS users should observe keenly.
