    That's the only way they will get people to upgrade. It's pretty clear that most people using windows 7 don't feel the need to upgrade and don't want to, which hurts windows 8 as a platform. If Microsoft made the upgrade free, I'm betting most people will do it.

    Apple has already been first to do this with OSX Mavericks.

    It is a free upgrade, from Windows 8. Windows 8 was only a $40 upgrade from Windows 7.

    Something to remember is Apple sells hardware and can give OSX for free.

    Microsoft sell... software.
