Microsoft is kicking off its Windows 10 event today in grand fashion, as the company announced the new OS will be a free upgrade for a year to any device running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1. For one year after Windows 10 arrives, users can upgrade to it for no cost at all, which is rather generous of the folks in Redmond. Exactly how the upgrade will be handled isn't known considering the wide-range of hardware Windows 7 is on, but presumably a hardware check to ensure compatibility will be part of it. At any rate, a free upgrade to Windows 10 certainly should not be missed, especially since it already sounds like a simpler way to get the new OS instead of dealing with a multitude of versions.

Once the first year passes, upgrading to Windows 10 will set you back some money, although an exact price is not known at this time.
