    It's free if you upgrade within the first 12 months of release.

    There has been rumors for a while now that it will just go straight to GA with manufacturers getting it the same time as everybody else, only time will tell though.

    Automatic Maintenance ran this morning, but no icon for me.

    I'm wondering whether it's because I use Firewall white-listing and %SystemRoot%\GWX\GWXConfigManager.exe was blocked for a few days until I investigated what it was? Or is the icon becoming active at different times on different machines?

    Also, if Microsoft already have upgrade manager software installed on your system, I'm not sure why it needs an email address either. Are they're planning on supplying new Windows 10 licence keys via email?
