    I wish to specifically know if installing Windows 10 cleans and rewrites the registry wiping out all my installed programs or modifies the registry and maintains the installed programs?

    It depends how you run the installer.
    If you do an upgrade, it will try and upgrade.
    ​If you tell it to do a fresh install, it will try and do that.

    From what we know so far, it looks like you'll need to do an in-place upgrade from Windows 8.x/7 to 10 if you want to get the free upgrade. After that you can choose to do a fresh OS install of 10 at any point. Of course you can also buy Windows 10 for new devices and do a fresh OS install.
