You can find more information here. There are a lot of people including myself that are asking that question.

this is a copy of the bottom line , its still very confusing to me and the upgrading to windows 8 to make it all work is very unclear about the fee for that.
Whether Windows 10 remains free a year after the OS is released is also a mystery, and there’s no word on how much it may cost once the year is up. Earlier reports hinted at an Office 365-like subscription model for the OS, but Microsoft neither confirmed nor denied the rumor. During a Q&A session after the event, the company said it “hasn’t decided” how much to charge, reports Ars Technica. On Microsoft’s blog, Terry Myerson attempted to explain the new idea of “Windows as a service,” but the language surrounding the price of updates and upgrades after the first year was confused.

“This is more than a one-time upgrade,” Myerson wrote. “Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device—at no additional charge.”

He did not include an explanation of how long the “supported lifetime of the device” will last for each product, nor did he address future pricing at all. According to ZDnet, Satya Nadella added that Windows as a service doesn’t imply further charges, but he did not comment further on future pricing. As such, the true cost of Windows 10 is still up in the air. We’ll keep you updated as we hear further details.

There are many unanswered questions. Perhaps things will become clearer once Win 10 is released in a few months.
