Microsoft on Wednesday released its latest and probably the last Windows 10. India, a critical market for Microsoft, will be among the 13 countries where the technology giant will host mega events.windows-10-jan-15-hero-970-80 Users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 who “reserved” a free update through the Get Windows 10 app will start to see a notification pop-up informing them that their update is ready for installation. The update is going out in waves, which means it’s likely that some users won’t actually get it on Wednesday. In addition, the installer will check to make sure that a device’s apps and hardware are compatible with Windows 10, and will warn the user before proceeding or avoid installing altogether.

After that, Microsoft will charge everyone to upgrade their older systems. People who are on an older version of Windows are ineligible for a free upgrade, so they’ll have to pay right out of the gate. As with all operating systems, it’s entirely likely that some users will encounter bugs with Windows 10 when it’s first installed.
