For one full year after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft will be offering free upgrades for those on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1.

Microsoft made this reveal a short time ago today at their big Windows 10 media briefing today. Details are a little sketch on just how this program will work, however the reveal did note that this free upgrade will only be for a period of one year after the launch of Windows 10.

With there being such a huge number of people still on Windows 7, this free upgrade for two generations of the operating system is fantastic news.
