To the joy of many clinging on to their Windows 7 machines, the next genereration of Windows, Windows 10 will be made available for the first year as a free upgrade to those using Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.

As that last part suggest, Windows 10 will be the all encompassing operating system that Windows 8 was meant to me. Not just PCs, not just tablets, not just convertibles, not just mobiles and not just gaming consoles. Windows 10 will be available across a multitude of devices now common in homes and business alike.
