Just an update for anybody interested in upgrading their PCs/laptops to Windows 10.
The EULA/license agreement (in build 10240) updated in July 2015, does NOT refer to 'lifetime of the device'.
In other words, the OS can be transferred to other machines PROVIDED you have a retail copy.
OEM or pre-installed copies cannot be transferred and are tied to the hardware. This mostly applies to branded PCs and laptops that came with a pre-installed version of Windows.
If you have a retail copy and at some point in time change/upgrade the machine just call MS call centre and they will help you with steps on activation.
Other than the continuous updates/ Windows as a service type of business model MS is currently thinking of, other aspects of the OS are as they were for earlier versions of Windows. If anybody's interested I can paste the EULA here, it's a pretty lengthy document.
Today's 1 week before the release. I will not be surprised if 10240 indeed gets the signoff.
Post OS and driver updates received 16th Jul, via the WUS, the current build I have is:
The build was 10240.16384 when released.
There will be more OS updates (via WUS) probably clicking up the build number a few notches to something over 16393. Whether those updates will be integrated into the final GA release on 29th is anybody's guess.
Even my system is receiving a free upgrade of Windows 10 Pro. As per http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...serve_mod1_faq I should be able to copy the file to a DVD or a USB drive and use it for re-installing the OS or have a fresh installation. Here the question what I have is where will this installation file be saved to copy the file. Can any one help me out with this?
