Yea, I think everyone on windows vista, 7 or 8 get a free upgrade to 10. I even heard that they are offering the upgrade to pirated versions as well! Not sure if that's true though..

I think the upgrade is being offered for a year so you don't have to decide right away

My brother mentioned this to me, apparently it's legit (well as far as anything is legit with microsoft) and Windows 10 is supposed to be okay too, doesn't effect me in the slightest cos I didn't purchase my copy of 7 lol

I'm going to try it, I have two installs of windows on separate disks on this PC and can sacrifice the old install I think on one of the disks.

They will let everyone have it for free, even cracked and riped versions.

Then about 12-18 month down line turn off the none Legit versions.

They get Extra free testers for 12-18 months.

PS the Icon in right corner is to Resurve your upgrade copy

I think they want to move to a subscription based service, like they have with office.

Free for a year, then pay a monthly / yearly fee like Xbox live

Would it be a complete fresh install, or would it retain a backup?

I've been running the technical evaluation of windows 10 for a few months now, it's pretty decent once you unpin all the crap from main page then remove/uninstall all the bloatware. :yep: good if you need a new operating system and can't afford windows 7 :wassnnme: I just needed to upgrade from XP so my music software would work. :sadwalk: rip xp
