    On the notification area icons section next to the clock and date on windows 7 appeared a get windows 10 icon this morning. When you click on it a screen appears that tells you how the free upgrade works and gives you the option to reserve the upgrade. Came on here to see it others had received that notification and found this thread.

    Yes, I got an icon on my bottom-right corner about Windows 10 on my Surface Pro, but not my desktop (so far). I reserved my copy and also came on to see if others had this notification.

    Just reserved mine 😁. Probably it's a mistake tho, since the learn more link isn't working.

    EDIT: The website is available now.

    Why would one need to reserve a copy?

    They might want to see how many people are interested in it

    Makes alot of sense.. Maybe to allocate server resources and bandwidth in advance for anticipated high download quotas... You know so users wont get pissed cuz their upgrades time out or are DL at the rocket ship speed of 15kbs. Smart move if you ask me.

    Also as an FYI to less tech savy users to lock them into the update so it's automated come rollout time. You'd be surprised at how many people I see still have Windows 8.0 running on their system because they have no clue about installing it from the Store. A big issue for MST considering 8.1 is required to update to 10. Something I don't really understand being that you can update from 7 to 10.

    I would guess letting non techy people know its coming myself. But what I said above could b true as well I'm just speculating.. Only one can answer your question 100% accurate I guess again would be Microsoft.. Hehe

    Saw the icon and message on my desktop this evening. By "reserving" you're giving permission to Microsoft to download Windows 10 on your device through Windows Update as soon as it is available. Went ahead and "reserved" on my PC. No icon as of yet on my Surface 3.

    I am using the technical preview but I have not got the icon yet. I was on windows 7 before I started the preview. Anyone have any clue if I will get the option to upgrade when it launches?

    I received the message on my two Lenovo laptops...I had recently downloaded Win 10 preview on one and in my opinion it was ok at first but the upgrade was unstable and when I tried to revert it failed. I replaced my drive with an ssd drive and installed Win 8.1 64 pro. I surely hope the future upgrade is Stable and doesn't screw up my two laptops ..'cause I'm gonna get pissed...!!!!..

    Yeah I don't think that was the most brilliant update method. The Store doesn't seemed to be used much as a whole, and even if the 8.1 update was seen, would the average user install it?

    But then, how well will the Windows Updates method work? People in general don't worry about installing updates either. Maybe if it notifies them about it, like it started to do, it might get installed more often.

    From the description it sounds like the update will be downloaded ahead of time, and then at the time of installation it will complete the download with a delta update. This indeed should help with download performance!

    Server/bandwidth performance is one downside to simultaneous updates. I know that when Apple releases an iOS update it can take hours to download if you try to run it immediately (if you're lucky; sometimes it totally crashes). I guess that's one thing we can hand to Google; they don't suffer from that problem!

    WP has a small enough user base that an update can go off without a hitch, but this update is the desktop, which is much bigger.
