Free Windows 7?

Monday, April 4th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

A reader is ready to upgrade his XP PC. He writes: “I have Windows XP on my PC.  I want to upgrade to Windows 7.  Should I buy it or is there a free version of it?  How to go about it to get the free version?”

There’s no free version of Windows 7 available. Those already using Windows 7 and 8.1 can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. If you want Windows 7, you’ll have to pay.

Windows 7 is getting harder and harder to find these days. Some companies like Dell do still have a very small selection of Windows 7 PCs in stock, though your best deal may be on a refurbished Windows 7 PC.

Keep in mind that Windows 7 only has 4 more years of support from Microsoft, where if you go with a Windows 10 PC, you’ve got support until 2025.
