Have Windows 10 Preview installed on the PC. Will I have access to the final version of the system?

Microsoft finally explained the situation.

Scenario 1: you have the Preview version of Windows 10 and wants to remain an Insider

If you want to continue collaborating with the test program from Microsoft, you have a legit copy of Windows 10, and continue receiving updates before anyone else. It’s like if I used forever a beta version of Windows, having access to the news before the general public, but also running more risks to find unexpected bugs, incompatibility issues, and etc.

Scenario 2: you have updated your PC with Windows 7 or 8.1 for Windows 10 Preview without formatting your PC, but want to leave the Insider program

Once Windows 10 come to its final version, you will receive it. If you decide to choose the normal version of the system and stop receiving updates, you can. If your version of Windows 7 or 8.1 was genuine, she continues with genuine Windows 10.

IE: the offer of free upgrade of Windows 7 or 8.1 also goes for whoever did the Windows Update 10 Preview the way official. If you formatted your machine and installed the W10 for an ISO image, their situation becomes more difficult.

Scenario 3: you formatted your PC and installed the Preview of Windows 10, but wants to leave the Insider program

As long as you do part of the Insiders program, you will continue receiving preview updates, as described in scenario 1, and will continue with a genuine editing system. If you choose to exit the program and stop receiving these updates, these versions will expire, and Microsoft will notify you to acquire a genuine license of Windows 10 to continue using, or request that you reinstall an earlier version of the system.
