The question now is, for the devices that are still on 8.1, what is the difference between getting 10240 now, opting out of insiders and waiting till July 29 (or beyond)?

Will upgrading from a valid 8.1 licensed device count as a license upgrade to Windows 10, or would I need to go back to 8.1 and get the update without insiders?
