Is the Windows 10 upgrade free?

Hi, I'm running on a old laptop with a Windows 7 Home edition.

Every time I logout of office 365 the MSN site, shows me something like upgrade to windows 10 free.

Do you really get windows 10 upgrade free or is there a catch?

Thanks.

PS. I attached the top bar image that comes out. It used to be a big thing in the middle of the page a few weeks back.

Hi,
Yep it's free
Catch is even though you be offered the update does not mean your machine is completely compatible,
Best to go to your computer manufactures website and ask them if win-10 is compatible.

Hi,
I wouldn't get my hopes up too much,
But if they say yes do yourself a favor and buy a new hdd to install it on and save your current hdd/ install encase you don't like it,

Or you can go the system image route for the current install,

Why does Microsoft not check for compatibility issues? I allowed the free upgrade. after the first reboot I had a big circle with a zero. This went to 32% and stuck there for half an hour. I was unable to do anything with my PC. In desperation I put a second bootable HD and used it to format the...
