    If you have non-Genuine Windows 7 or 8.1, you upgrade free... To non-Genuine 10. It bears a watermark advising of the non-Genuine status. You will be cut off from updates including critical updates to patch bugs and security issues.

    Microsoft will offer you "attractive pricing" to convert to a Genuine license.

    No word that Insiders get a magic pass from non-Genuine to legitimate licensed 10.

    I don't think it will ask for key.. Only PC's running genuine 7 or 8 gets the reserve icon..

    I'm guessing that Microsoft is giving non-genuine 7/8.1 users that has joined the insider program a chance to get Windows 10 for free.

    If you upgrade, it'll still be non genuine Windows.

    However I think staying in the Insider program might be "free."

    I don't think it would be free for insiders.. If that would be everyone would do that and get genuine w10.. Insiders who had genuine 7/8 will have the official 10 and those running pirated will have watermark below on right hand side

    Actually it will be genuine for Insiders. You just have to keep using the preview builds (which can still mean staying on the slow ring), and you've got a genuine copy of Windows.

    Missed the part about reserve icon?!
    If it isn't genuine, it will show the watermark and bug you for a key every now and again.

    Yup, you can keep using preview builds of the OS as long as you test builds and let MS collect diagnostic data
