    I've seen the upgrade matrix, however it seems to contradict what's stated in the announcement hence my asking. The matrix was announced weeks ago so I was wondering if things had changed.

    Can't say when but it was more than a few weeks ago and as far as I know it's not been updated since then. I still think that an ISO will be available but that's just a guess on my part., Only MS knows what the plan is and hopefully they'll come out with it some time very soon.

    What's the contradiction? The upgrade matrix just shows what's needed to upgrade online through Windows update. You need Windows 7 with SP1 or Windows 8.1 to upgrade online. Anything else and you need an ISO.

    Well, I can confirm that Windows 8.1 (Core) now gets you Windows 10 Home Technical Preview. And that Windows 7 Ultimate gets you Windows 10 Professional Technical Preview. I don't think it did that in the past. You just got Windows 10 Technical Preview, which I believe was the equivalent of Pro. These were both online upgrades to 10074 via the Insiders page. Then upgraded again to 10122.

    Interesting note: On the Windows 7 upgrade it never prompted me to setup a live ID. It just let me long on with a local account on the first boot into Windows 10. No nag screen to switch either. I had to manually do it. It may have prompted me to switch eventually, I don't know. I switched to the Live ID after my first log in.

    • If upgraded within the first 12 months following launch, the device will receive ongoing Windows 10 updates for free for the life of that device
    Well that's interesting, and a little concerning.
