I've read that July 29 is the RTM date. But there's a bit of a delay between RTM and when it's officially released to the public.

And yeah, looks like it is July 29, straight from Microsoft's mouth!

Microsoft is making Windows 10 available as free upgrade for qualified Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 devices. It will be available starting July 29, 2015; people can reserve their free upgrade today.

You only have until July 29, 2016 to take advantage of this offer. Once you upgrade, you have Windows 10 for free on that device.-https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-faq

One thing I noticed on TenForums was a post about what you lose if you upgrade from W7.  The main item seemed to be Media Center.  If you have a Media Center edition of Windows that upgrades to W10, the Media Center is stripped out.  I don't want to duplicate all the TenForums News articles here so I'll just supply the link if anyone wants to check out the subforum.  Once W10 is released then the forum will switch into problem solving mode.

Wait what? so if there is an update with issues on your system, you cannot stop it being applied?

I have seen the offer on Windows 7 - but not on Windows 8.1, where I would actually consider updating...
