    Interesting report from the GWX app on my Laptop. On my desktop I am running NS Beta and it checks OK.

    Since it has been confirmed by MS, that 10 is the last Windows and from now on it will be only offered like a service, the question is not if, but when it will happen. Probably 10 will be a crossing between 10 and 365.

    Once you upgrade to Windows 10 through the free upgrade offer, its free for the life of that device. The only thing that happens after that one year period is that anybody that decides to then do the upgrade must pay for it. Anybody that has already upgraded just keeps on using their free Windows 10 with no additional fees.

    Windows as a Service does not mean "by subscription only". And I have not seen anything that says it will only be offered as a subscription. Not from Microsoft. There is lots of FUD on the internet on that subject that should be taken with a grain of salt. Newegg already has a listing for stand alone OEM versions.

    Windows As A Service just means, no more new "Stand Alone" OS's... no 11 no 12 no Roof no Front Door etc... Upgrades, improvements, and new feature are automatically part of the deal through Windows update, as a service to the user/owner of the PC at no extra charge. I'm sorry, but that's as clear as it get's.

    I have an old PC with Win 7. I tried to install Win 8 on it. It said this PC is not Win 8 compatible . So can I install Win 10 with Win 7 upgrade offer?

    If you have the GWX icon, open it and at top left click on the hamburger icon and it will open another window. Click on the item I indicated (wording may be different) and it will give you a report on your system.

    I ended up just removing the update because I don't wanna waste system resources on that.

    Plus like, my current computer's motherboard doesn't support UEFI and supposedly Windows 10 requires UEFI for the install. :/ Hopefully I get my new computer built before 10 comes out or something. Gonna be fun waiting for everything to be fixed to run on Windows 10...
    Only using 1.5MB seen it in task manager, so no worries. I just received it today and reserved mine.

    As said by others i love freebies too.
