    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit


    Is Windows 10 really free and do I have to pay for it after the first year has passed?
    Windows 10 will be free for the first year to all Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Phone 8.1 users. This means, as long you upgrade within the first 12 months (July 29th 2015 to July 29th 2016), you will not have to pay for Windows 10 at all.
