Microsoft creates confusion over free Windows 10 for insiders

Late last week, Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul detailed how any users would be able to get Windows 10 for free without having to jump through too many hoops.

Many saw it as the ultimate Microsoft giveaway as it required users to enrol on the Windows Insider programme in order to qualify for the freebie.

However, over the weekend Microsoft seems to have changed its mind after Aul Tweeted that only users running Genuine Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 can upgrade to Windows 10 as part of the free upgrade offer.

Just remember to save your product key if you ever choose to do a fresh install rather than an upgrade
