If you decide not to or you live under a rock and find out too late, the company says Windows 10 will cost you $119 (unless you buy a new computer, in which case it will come included).

Despite the off-putting tactics, the operating system remains a strong one, perhaps most of all for gamers who benefit from DirectX 12 and other technical advantages, so we encourage you to grab it free while you can.
