Microsoft has officially launch Windows 10 earlier this week and has started to roll out the new operating system to users throughout the world who mainly will receive it as a free upgrade for their Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machines. While it might not be a smooth journey for everyone (just see the comments in our previous article and our forums), it seems that the operating system has reached plenty of users in just 24 hours after it goes official.
Even though plenty of users will be upgrading to Windows 10 for free from their Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 devices, there are still users out there who need to purchase the new operating system separately. Unfortunately, the official Malaysian pricing for the new operating system is still not yet available even on the official online store for Microsoft Malaysia. That being said though, we manage to track down some useful information from our industry insiders regarding the pricing of Windows 10 in our market.
While Microsoft has been promoting the free Windows 10 upgrade to existing Windows 7 and 8.1 users for the past few months, there are some users out there that might need to purchase the operating system separately.

If you find yourself to be part of this user group, you can look forward to grab your hands on the boxed version at retail stores in Malaysia on 10 August.
