or - would an OP have to "buy" a copy of win_7 / win_8 - first.
IMHO, that is off-topic. The OP didn't ask about Windows 10 or how to upgrade to it so I don't think it's appropriate to derail his thread.

That's strange. It's working every time for me ....... and I'm using Vista!

I'll post it again;

Ok, if you can't get it to open I'll copy and paste the bit about the prices.

From the page;

"How much will Windows 10 cost?

Microsoft's Executive Vice President of Operating Systems Terry Myerson announced in January that Windows 10 will be free for existing Windows 7 and 8.1 users for its first year. Microsoft also confirmed a while ago that the two most recent Windows versions will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 directly.

However, if you're not eligible for Microsoft's upgrade program – those who upgrade after the first year free offer, or those running a non-genuine Windows version or one older than Windows 7 – Windows 10 Home will cost $119 (about 78, AU$156) and Windows 10 Pro will cost $199 (131, AU$262) per license, Microsoft confirmed to TechRadar. Windows 10 Home users who want to upgrade to Pro will have to pay an additional $99 (65, AU$130) for the Windows 10 Pro Pack.

The company promises that it will support those who scored a free upgrade to Windows 10 with security and system updates for the lifetime of those Windows devices."

Thanks deya, for posting this. I remembered the figure of 119$ but strangely, I cannot locate any other link on the internet posting about the prices.

I think the techradar site not working here is because of being here in India, it tries to open the in.techradar.com page, and that's where it causes the problem.

No worries. Not much difference, price wise, to 7 or 8.1 here. Maybe a bit more expensive. Depending on where you shop I suppose.

but - to bang on a bit more from the Vista viewpoint:
- that's expensive - especially if you want the Pro version.

and this OP knows several Vista owners .. ..
- which is why - all the interest in shifting From Vista. ..

to anything - win_7, whatever. ..
