This morning I glanced at the "notification area" (formerly known as system tray) of my Windows 8 desktop and noticed a brand new icon:
Nervous to click it (I had a dream last night where I clicked on an email and got a virus...) yet excited to see what it was - I clicked.
What a welcome way to begin my week! It was a notification to reserve my free upgrade to Windows 10.
Clicking on the "Reserve your free upgrade" button, this screen appeared:
After clicking the "Send confirmation" button, it stated that I will receive a notification when Windows 10 is ready:
What's New in Windows 10?
When will Windows 10 be available?
July 29, 2015
Who is eligible for the free upgrade?
Microsoft's website says:
The only requirements are that a) your device is compatible, and b) you're running genuine Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1. Windows 10 is designed to run on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs. That means your device is likely compatible and will run Windows 10.

Does Legacy Family Tree work with Windows 10?
