That level of detail is not clear yet for the "free" upgrade.

You can always buy Windows 10 outright and avoid the problem.

Operating Systems, Microsoft Windows - Newegg.com

It's between 110 and 150 at the above link.

I'd avoid it entirely unless you have some red-hot reason why you have to have it. Win 7 will be supported until 2020.

I'll probably go with it, but only because I'll be building a new PC.

Every Windows installation has its own Key - you will be allotted a Win10 Key when you do the upgrade.
