    DreamSpark currently offers Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro with Update for free.

    So will Microsoft make Windows 10 IoT Enterprise available on DreamSpark for free sometime in the future?

    I don't think that enterprise will be offered on free platforms since it is intended to be a biz software. Perhaps they show old embedded material now for free because a new version is due which will only show up in MSDN and such levels of distribution

    Pretty sure that the version offered in DreamSpark is called Education.
    Perhaps you're thinking of BizSpark.

    Yeh, I am waiting for the OEM Windows 10 IoT Enterprise to confirm and see which build it would be.

    That is the truth about it. There is no way Microsoft is offering Enterprise to users for free and it is not even meant for students in the first place.
