So, finally Windows 10 is here.
Here are some #Q&A from Microsoft website

If you reserved your free upgrade, it’s on the way. You’re part of the largest #software upgrade event ever and we’re managing it so everyone has a great experience. Your notification to upgrade could come as soon as a few days or weeks. Absolutely can’t wait? Tech savvy users can use the Media Creation Tool to install immediately on one or multiple devices.
And you can always check your upgrade status in the Get Windows 10 app.
[learn_more caption=”Is the upgrade really free?” state=”close”]
Yes, it’s free. This is a full version of Windows, not a trial or introductory version. It is available for a limited time: you have until July 29, 2016 to take advantage of this offer. Once you upgrade, you’ll have Windows 10 for free on that device. You can learn more here.
[learn_more caption=”How do I get my free upgrade?” state=”close”]
You can do one of two things:
1. Buy a new device with Windows 10 already on it, or a new Windows 8.1 device and upgrade it to #Windows10 for free1, or
2. Upgrade your existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 PC for free1
Not every device will run every feature of Windows 10. Be sure to check with your manufacturer before purchasing. Additional details on upgrade qualifications are below and on the Windows 10 specifications page.

You may purchase Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store or other retailers and install it on your existing device running #WindowsXP or #WindowsVista if your device meets theminimum spec requirements for Windows 10. You will need to back up any existing files before installing Windows 10. It will be a “clean” install.
However, we recommend you experience Windows 10 on a newer device. We think you’ll be happier with the affordable, great PCs that are available today. PCs have improved dramatically since Windows XP was released in 2001 and Windows Vista was released in 2006.
[learn_more caption=”Can I get my free Windows 10 upgrade even if I didn’t reserve?” state=”close”]
Yes, you can still get your free upgrade. Making a reservation is the first step. To reserve, click here.
[learn_more caption=”What if I have more than one Windows device—can I upgrade them all?” state=”close”]
Yes, you can get a free upgrade for each of your eligible Windows devices. All you need to do is open the Get Windows 10 app and click “Reserve” on each of your devices.
You can also upgrade multiple devices by using a #USBdrive. This is helpful if you only want to download the installation files once, and don’t mind manually beginning the upgrade on each device.
[learn_more caption=”Can I go back to my previous version of Windows if I don’t like Windows 10?” state=”close”]
Yes, while we think you will love all the features of Windows 10, you will have one month after upgrading to revert back to the previous version of #Windows on your device.
