    I have a new laptop with Wds 8.1 ... as I understand that I can upgrade to wds 10 for free within the "FIRST YEAR" when M$ releases it ..
    Is this upgrade good for the life of the wds or just for 1 year ... then I have to "Buy" ..it ..? if I want to continue to use it ?

    Thanks .
    Looks like it's good for the life of your device you upgrade from W7 or W8.1 during first year of W10.
    I hope so ...
    Cool.. thanks .

    MS only need to do this once because after that, you buy the license as part of any new machine and there won't be any new versions to upgrade to within its useful life, unless you want go from Standard to Pro possibly

    So that would mean that if you upgrade your CPU or MB you have to pay for a new windows too?
