    From Computerworld:

    Four months after pitching Windows 10 to businesses, Microsoft is focusing on consumers at an event where CEO Satya Nadella and other officials are pledging that the new OS offers individuals significant advances over Windows 8, its problematic predecessor.

    "Today is a monumental day for Windows," Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Operating Systems group, said at Wednesday's event, being held at Microsoft's Redmond, Washington, headquarters and available via live webcast.

    The first big news: Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to current users of Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 7 during its first year of availability.

    At least Windows 10 looks usable for desktops/laptops. I like how it is supposed to change to a tablet/touch orientated desktop when the keyboard gets disconnected (wonder if it works with a desktop if I pull the USB keyboard out).

    Looks interesting, and being free may be worth trying it out. Could always revert back to Windows 7 if it doesn't work so well.
