Re: Consumer refers to who's paying

"Consumer versions of Windows 10 are "free" and paid for by providing telemetry data."

That's only true if you had a Windows 7/8 version to upgrade from, and you upgraded in the allotted time. Otherwise, you pay for it upfront, then pay for it again through telemetry.
