When the free Windows 10 upgrade comes out, will you get the Pro version or Home version if you have Windows 8.1 Pro or Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate?


When you upgrade, you’ll stay on like-to-like editions of Windows. For example, Windows 7 Home Premium will upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

    Well, the names are the same, but what reason do we have to believe that the features are the same? For example, maybe something available in 7 Home Premium is now only available in 10 Pro and not 10 Home. – 287352 Jul 15 '15 at 22:05

    @fredsbend A good thought, but there are many previews, reviews, and feature lists showing that this is simply not the case. The only things not included in either edition that may be in W7 or W8 are on their specification list under 'Feature Deprecation': microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-specifications – Ben Sampica Jul 15 '15 at 23:11
