Almost everyone will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10, but for those who are planning on building their own systems should take note that Microsoft has revealed the international pricing for its next operating system. Some prices first appeared on Newegg, but that appears to be slightly different from the actual prices.
The information was first noticed by Neowin, who noted that the US and European versions of the Get Windows 10 app have started including the price on their notices. Windows 10 Home will cost US$119 (about RM447) in the US, with the UK paying £99.99 (about RM583) for the same thing. Pricing for the Eurozone has also been revealed as being €135 (about RM568).
For now there has not been any other pricing information for Windows 10 anywhere else in the world, although we should be able to estimate the local pricing for the operating system. Considering that Windows 8 was being sold for US$199 when it first launched, this is a significant step back for Microsoft.
On the other hand, it would probably be cheaper to build a system now and get in on the Windows Insider programme and get the OS for free.
