Windows 10 upgrade paths

In the last week we have learned that there will be six Windows 10 Editions when the new OS releases over the course of the next several months. Microsoft is yet to explain the exact details of how the free Windows 10 upgrade will work for users of Windows 7/8.1. While that info is expected as we get closer to Windows 10 RTM, which is currently sometime this summer, I may have found some good indicators of the various paths to Windows 10. While I was perusing the official MSDN RSS feeds earlier today I came across a blog post from the Microsoft Australia Partner Network site which was a recap of recent Windows 10 announcements. Based on that last bullet it appears the Windows 10 update will be provided to properly licensed versions of Windows 7/8.1 through Windows Update instead of the Windows Store. This is exactly how Microsoft initially pushed the Windows 10 Technical Preview to Insiders on Windows 7 and 8.1 so the system has been well tested. You might recall that Microsoft pushed the Windows 8.1 update to users on Windows 8 through the Windows Store and it proved to have its share of challenges. Hopefully, Microsoft will also provide properly licensed users of Windows 7/8.1 with a license key that can be used with an ISO of the correct version of Windows 10 for their system instead of having to install the old OS and subsequent updates in order to perform the upgrade to Windows 10 if a clean install is necessary...Are you looking for more detailed and complete information, please visit windows8newsinfo forum.
