Partly to recover their reputation a little bit. But MS has stated that Win10
will be "the last Windows" due to continual incremental upgrades, and that
they want to move to "subscription pricing". That's a fancy name for
renting the operating system, and it will earn MS more in the long run.

Whether that worries or comforts you is a personal decision.

As your friendly neighbourhood free-marketeer knows instinctively,
"the first one is free".
