Migration from Windows XP to Windows 10 might be cheap

Migration from Windows XP to Windows 10 might be cheap

After the Windows 8 debacle Microsoft will soon try to get everyone on Windows 10 via aggressive pricing and free updates. We know that users of genuine copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to update their operating systems to Windows 10 for free within one year after the new OS release but what will happen to Windows XP users? As you know Windows XP remains the second most used Windows version after Windows 7 and this is a problem for Microsoft.

It seems that Microsoft has thought of this issue as well. According to online sources the US software giant will offer Windows XP users the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 for just USD 39.99, which is not a lot of money. This price can even be called low given how much money you need to spend on any new version of Windows.

There’s something else though – given that millions of Windows XP users choose to use this upgrade path, they are also likely to upgrade their computers since the hardware requirements of Windows 10 are much higher than the ones for Windows XP. It remains to be seen whether there’s such an upgrade path but in case there is, this will surely be an interesting and attractive way to get the latest and likely last Windows version.

Windows 10 is expected in August of this year.
