    Terry Myerson, executive vice president of operating systems for Microsoft, wrote that the company will provide very attractive offers to those who wish to upgrade from what he called a Windows operating system in a "non-genuine state" to Windows 10. But, he said, it will not be free. Microsoft executives said that the company will not offer Windows 10 for free to those without legitimate licenses to Microsoft’s software, as the company had previously seemed to say. Myerson wrote: "While our free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 will not apply to Non-Genuine Windows devices, and as we’ve always done, we will continue to offer Windows 10 to customers running devices in a non-genuine state. In addition, in partnership with some of our valued OEM partners, we are planning very attractive Windows 10 upgrade offers for their customers running one of their older devices in a non-genuine state".

    So if the old Windows is "genuine", for whatever reasons (because of a good hack for example), you hopefully can upgrade.

    win7 coa stickers/win8 bios keys to the rescue....

    Through my career I often get computers that people want to chuck out, they never activated using the oem key on the COA sticker.

    Often win8 work laptops were straight away formatted for a win 7 install so the keys stored in the bios aren't used and I have been able to get a few of those that were damaged and being thrown out for free.

    I'm a registered insider (so this prerequisite is filled), but I'm testing W10 in a VM in a computer with a modified BIOS and a "genuine" W7 with many applications and important data.
    My workaround:
    1 - Clone the current OS (just in case)
    2 - Upgrade to Windows 10 (I hope it will keep all my data)
    3 - If it is keeping my data (programs and personal files intact) that's OK, I'll wait for RTM :p
    4 - If not, retrieve the old OS from the cloned one and forget about. :D

    That is not true. You misread it. All it says is that if you have Vista, or below you will not be able to upgrade. That is all it says.

    Only Win7 Pro and Ultimate will get Win10 Pro, Below to win7 Pro he get Win10 Home.

    Do you think we need Win10 Pro and not Home enough ?
