Microsoft is also celebrating the launch of Windows 10 by giving back. The nine global organizations include CARE, Code.org, Keep a Child Alive, Malala Fund, Pencils of Promise, Save the Children, Special Olympics, The Global Poverty Project, and The Nature Conservancy. By the way, if you have Windows 8, you will need to upgrade to 8.1 to qualify for this free upgrade. But, it sucks for those of us who won’t get the OS right when it releases.
