When is Windows 11 coming, will it be free, and how can I get it?

At the Microsoft Build developer conference, CEO Satya Nadella said the company will announce the next version of Windows. With the news of a leaked Windows 11 build dominating headlines in the tech world this entire week, suffice to say Microsoft is on to something big with the next-generation Windows.

When will Windows 11 be released?

We don’t know the release date of Windows 11 yet. It was previously said that Microsoft was targeting the second half of the year as the launch date of Windows 11. Another media report claims the upcoming Windows 11 will be rolled out to the public towards the end of the year. Look, even if the Redmond-based reveals Windows 11 next week, the operating system would be ready for the general public. Typically, any new operating system or software update first gets tested by Windows Insiders (as in the case of a new Windows update) before releasing to PC makers and the public.

Will Windows 11 be a free update?

We have to wait for Microsoft as far as the pricing of Windows 11 is concerned. There’s a chance that Windows 11 will be a free “upgrade” for Windows 10 users, or Microsoft makes it optional for Windows 10 users to upgrade to the next-generation Windows. Right now, it seems unlikely that the next version of Windows will be a small update. Microsoft has officially said it will end support for Windows 10 in 2025.
