    Honestly, you'd have to be a broken doorknob to refuse Windows 10 for 7 at this point, there's no logical argument, other than of course soft/hardware compatibility issues.
    Windows 10 is still a Beta and users have been reporting wacky problems (like HDD issues).

    Hi there

    The FREE update will interest the Corporate market who I'm sure don't want to be stuck with an aging OS - especially if their main users are using W10 at home.

    Now I'm sure there will be some restrictions on a W7 ==> W10 upgrade as I can't see Ms dishing out 100,000's of free copies to large corporations like SHELL for example - but who knows - Ms might have planned other ways to extract revenue from these companies - for example FREE upgrade but you have to license Office 365.

    Cheers

    Here's the fine print: Windows 10 - Microsoft Windows

    *It is our intent that most of these devices will qualify, but some hardware/software requirements apply and feature availability may vary by device. Devices must be connected to the internet and have Windows Update enabled. ISP fees may apply. Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Update required. Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise outside of this offer. We will be sharing more information and additional offer terms in coming months
