At the very beginning of June, Microsoft announced the fact that the final variant of Windows 10 will pop-up on our computers on July 29. In the same out we found out that some users might get a free update to the new operating system version, but things weren’t so clear.


However, Microsoft finally brief us on Windows 10 free update matter today. We get to know that the free licence will be offered just to the actual users who are using a notebook/desktop with a genuine license of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.

Microsoft also let us know that those who are using at the moment Windows 10 Technical Preview without a real licence won’t be eligilbe for this free-update offer. In the case that you’re a Windows Insider member, you can stay in the testing program with just a single rule, and that is to allow all the upcoming updates of the system.

Therefor, just those users who are owning an actual Windows 7/8/8.1 license will be eligible to update their OS to the new version, free for one year.
