    Window 10 will be free or not for Insiders?


    I have a question, Window 10 will be free or not for Insiders?
    The ppl who is in the Insider program will get a valid license for free or not?

    Windows 10 will only be available for users with a genuine copy of Windows 7 or 8.1, so there’s no such thing as a free lunch. At least, not for now and not for insiders.

    99% chance of no. If you stay in Insider Program, you continue receiving Insider Builds (as long as you are logged in with your Insider MS Account). RTM will be one build, but soon Insiders will be testing builds newer then RTM, with new buggy features to boot.

    You DO NOT get a free final license and you CAN NOT use Win10 Final once Tech Preview updates beyond it.

    In a matter of about 24 hours, the Internet has gone full circle on the issue of Windows 10 is free for Insiders, to it's not free, back to it's free for Insiders as long as they, at some point in time, had a genuine Windows 7 or 8 license.

    It’s a little more complicated than that, more like they withheld the truth

    MS has said that the update will be free to insiders not the upgrade. There is a difference...

    If you continue as an insider, you will be able to use windows 10 for free as long as the insider program lasts.

    “I want to continue as a Windows Insider!”

    If you want to continue as a Windows Insider past 7/29 there is nothing you need to do. You’re already opted in and receiving builds in the Fast or Slow ring depending upon your selection. This is prerelease software and is activated with a prerelease key. Each individual build will expire after a time, but you’ll continue to receive new builds so by the time an older prerelease build expires you’ll have received a new one. Since we’re continuing the Windows Insider Program you’ll be able to continue receiving builds and those builds will continue to be activated under the terms of the Windows Insider Program. We provide ISOs for these builds for recovery from any significant problems, but they are still pre-release software. As part of the program we’ll upgrade Insiders to what is for all intents and purposes the same build as what other customers will get on 7/29, but that will be just another build for Insiders, and those who stay in the program will simply get the next build after as well.

    Considering the amount of time we spend on our computers, we shouldn’t begrudge poor MS a measly £100 odd pounds to continue the use of it.
