    1. W..??? free upgrade to W10

    I have read that W7 users will also receive a free upgrade to W10. That is not what I heard Terry Myerson say. I watched the entire 2 hour presentation and unless I fell asleep at some stage the only thing that I heard TM say was that W10 would be a free upgrade for users of W8.1. He specifically did not include W7 or W8... only W8.1.

    Is there any official word from Microsoft on the subject. When a W7 or W8 client asks me if they are eligible for a free upgrade to W10, then I need to be able to provide an accurate answer.

    2. W10 versions and upgrades


    Has MS released any info with respect to the W10 versions..? Will these be like-for-like with W8.1..? I am assuming that the free upgrade option to W10 must be on a basis of W8.1 version X to W10 version X.

    TexasBullet, thanks for the link.

    Actually Terry Myerson did not say what PC World is reporting. However, I eventually did find a statement released later by Joe Belfiore (VP of OS Group) which reads as follows....

    Later the word "... qualified ... " was explained as follows.....

    I am of the view that Redmond has not finalised exactly what it will be offering and to whom it will be offering it.... :confused:

    So I think it is a case of ".... watch the Redmond space .... "

    My question is... How will some people without internet access in their home will be able to activate Windows 10 or will be able to use their computer?
    Some people cannot afford to pay for internet. (my thought).
