Maybe you missed the discussion about it that started yesterday?

I just got home and found my computer (Windows 7 x64) had rebooted after a BSOD, and I noticed a Windows logo in the tray which I had never seen before.

I clicked it and got a message about a free upgrade to Windows 10:
 (see attachment in previous post)
Anyone else seeing this?

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

Just popped up on my Win 8.1 box during the day. I went ahead and opted in, I have full image backups. :-)

Hm, may need them. The box popped back up and after digging in it says the AMD Radeon HD 7660D video is "not fully compatible - you'll experience problems with your display."

That is not good. That's the on-motherboard junk that is working well enough for my two monitor system, but I already tried to replace it with an add-in R7750 card and the box just squawked at me. I better look into this again...

My everyone jumped on that one immediately! I hope everyone is still so excited when they get it installed.

I wouldn't say "Excited" would be the term to describe myself...Cautiously optimistic maybe.

It's tech news...I love tech news, so of course I am going to reply to one of the biggest tech news stories of the week.

Had a few friends say they have not got the notification on Windows 7 yet, but it popped up for me and my Mrs at the exact same time (Although, both laptops are same make/model/spec/OS/update version - Only difference is software installed).
