"Microsoft has finally revealed that Windows 10 will officially launch on July 29th, 2015, confirming a previous statement from AMD CEO Lisa Su that suggested the operating system will launch in late July.

The release date Microsoft is targeting leaves the development team just under two months to finalize the operating system. In its current state, as seen in the Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10030, the OS is still reasonably buggy, and some minor features Microsoft are hoping to include in the final version are yet to appear. Clearly the team still has a lot of work ahead of them to get the OS in a state that's ready for the public."

There will probably be a clean install option, but the update should keep everything intact, just like all other Windows updates/upgrades.

Update will be an upgrade and keep your data and programs intact.  There will be some changes to certain MS apps like Solitaire, Minesweeper, Mail, etc.

If you're using Windows 7 or 8/8.1 you should receive the upgrade pre-register offer automatically in your system tray.  I received mine last night.
