      Microsoft has announced that its next operating system will be offered as a free upgrade to owners of devices running Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Phone.

      The announcement marks a change in strategy to its previous policy of charging for major updates.

      The offer, which is limited to the OS's first year of release, may aid its adoption.

      The next Windows 7/8/8.1 update will include the Windows 10 Downloader, though it won't download it til it's ready, and it's an optional update at that.
