    The upgrades Start on the 29th. Depending on your hardware, where you're from, and a few other factors, it could be days, weeks or even a few months before you receive the OK to install the upgrade.

    Generally it will be Insider program members first, then people who've made a reservation. It's too late to be an Insider, but you can reserve your copy by clicking on the Windows icon in your taskbar on Windows 7 or 8.1.
