    It might be a bit early to ask, but has there been any info if Windows 10 upgrade/update will allow jumping from 32-bit OEM version to 64-bit? Is there any non-phone channel to ask this from somewhere in Microsoft?
    Affordable upgrade (like with Windows 8, oh why didn't I use that ) would be OK too, otherwise looking for a second-hand PC with 64-bit version to be used as main computer could be a better alternative.

    BR, Kimmo:)

    If I understand it correctly, the 32 vs 64 bit question is inherent in the processor itself- its set up for either 64 or 32 in how it operates.

    32bit <any version> to 64bit <any version> won't be a supported upgrade path.
    ​Depending on the final way the free upgrade for the first year is handled, you might be able to install a fresh 64bit version (but you'll likely lose any files etc on that existing hard drive).

    I know that upgrading to 64-bit will be clean install - perfect chance to move to SSD without cloning and get rid of all old sludge

    Maybe MS could go as far as to limit 32-bit version to special hardware (like old Atom N270 - which is a bit on slow side with W7) and make 64-bit version default...
