      Just been reading that Microsoft have finally confirmed a release date for Windows 10. The official release date for Windows 10 will be on July 29th 2015 and it seems that notifications in the taskbar on computers of those who are running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are showing for you to opt in and reserve your free copy of Windows 10.

      I have just reserved mine on my desktop PC and I shall do the same on my laptop a little later on when I log onto that as well.

      Will you be upgrading to Windows 10?

      Great to know the final release date. Eagerly waiting for the update. I might buy one copy of Windows 10 and check in my PC.

      Upgraded mine yesterday and really pleased with it so far :D seems a lot faster and smoother running than Windows 8.

      My comp did its updates a few nights ago. I then got a pop up about windows 10 but chose to ignore it.

      Is it free or a free trial? I am currently on Windows 8.1

      If your copy of Win 8.1 is legal then it's a free upgrade :)
