    It also checks your system once a month or so(TrackingDiag) to check compatibility if you have made any software changes.
    Software?? How would additions or changes in software change my eligibility??

    Compatibility, not eligibility.

    Here are some of them.. when I re-installed 8.1 I got about 200 in total.
    Thanks Jeff, the screen I saw was different - maybe I clicked on a different area. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to post what you see.

    If you have downloaded something that might work in your current version but not in 10, it will/should tell you that it's not compatible with 10.

    Thanks, maybe it was the Show all available Updates, not check for updates that I pressed.

    Anyway ... onward and upward!

    I had that before I ever had the icon in my notifications area. I posted a screen shot in the other thread about the GWX Icon. It's been there on my system for a while now.

    I think that the free upgrade will be available for a whole year. There are numerous ways to get a free license otherwise - e.g. from your employer, university, and so on. Or one can get new Windows with a new machine. Can someone tell me, what's the point of "reserving your copy" now?

    The files needed to do the upgrade will be downloaded to your PC in the background before hand. It will be quicker for you to actually do the upgrade when the time comes. Especially when those that didn't reserve, overload the Microsoft servers by trying to do the download all at the same time. You will get priority over those that wait till the last minute on the day RTM goes online.

The word is that files needed for the 10 upgrade will actually begin downloading before the 29th on systems where 10 has been reserved. Does anyone know if that has started yet and how we may be able to tell? Will these updates appear as KBxxxxxx...
I just reserved a free copy Windows 10 from my Windows 7 Ultimate. My question is that will I get upgraded to Windows 10 Home, Pro or Enterprise? Cause I don't want that underpowered home shit.
It is possible in Win8. If it is possible in Win10, I'd like to know how.
