Windows is arguably the go to operating system for a lot of computer users. Throughout the years the Windows operating system has met a lot of bumps along the road but it has continued to thrive through persistence and learning from their mistakes. In fact you can find a lot of material online that discriminates the poor quality of the older Windows operating systems.
However the later OS versions from Microsoft became better and better as the years went by. In fact the latest one which is Windows 10 reported is the best of the last two Windows Operating systems.
How to get the Windows 10?
When Windows 10 was announced by Microsoft it came as a free upgrade. Everyone was eligible to the upgrade as long as you were using a legal copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system. This went on for a full year or so and then Microsoft stopped rolling out the free upgrade. However there is still a way for you to get the upgrade without paying a single dime, but you have to be a user of assistive technologies. Yes, Microsoft is still giving users of assistive technologies the opportunity to use their newest operating system without buying it as long as they are currently using a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.
Pro Tip: If you have a Windows laptop that is already aging. A smart move would be just to sell it out as a second hand and buy a new laptop with newer specs and a free copy of Windows 10 installed.
If you are to buy a standalone copy of Windows 10, you will have to pay $119 for a Home edition, while $199 for the Pro edition.
