All around the world, Windows users are discovering a new icon in their notification trays—an offer to reserve a free copy of Windows 10. Sounds too good to be true, yes? Except Windows 10 actually is a free upgrade, and this really does appear to be the way you’ll get it.
Click on that icon, and up pops a description of how the upgrade process will work. (Were you hoping you’d get to download Windows 10 today? Sorry, this is just the reservation process.) Give Microsoft your email address—or not—and then Windows 10 will automatically download to your computer once Microsoft pulls the trigger.
Update: Windows 10 is coming July 29th.
