Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Especially as it is going to be free in the first year if you have Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.

Looks as though they are going to a subscription model which I personally wouldn't be very happy about, could become a very expensive Operating System as I doubt it will be pennies!!

Microsoft have said that it won't be subscription based, whether you upgrade in the first year or not.
