Plus, how to manually trigger the upgrade to Windows 10 (once the file has been downloaded).
Here's a (huge) XML file, straight from the Microsoft servers, that contains direct-download links for each of the various upgrade packages now publicly available by Microsoft and therefor to upgrade from any supported Windows version to an appropriated Windows 10 edition right now. No need to wait until MS deploys it for you.

There're separated x86 and x64 versions of the installers, where each are tied to a specific combination of a) the current a.a) Windows version, a.b) Windows edition and a.c) _system language and b) the future b.a) Windows 10 edition and b.b) system language._
Vaguely: 1.) Figure out the correct upgrade package for your current PC, 2.) download it from the official HTTP source and,finally, 3.) install the downloaded image file. Profit.
The best thing: you can just invoke the "SetupHost.exe" manually from the command line in order to upgrade your Windows PC to Windows 10 yourself and right now. No need to wait for MS to serve it to you. :-)
Two more hints:
- 32-bit upgrade packages as `installx86.esd` into `C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources`.
- 64-bit upgrade packages as `installx64.esd` into `C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources`.
2) Check the "/InstallFile" switch of "C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\SetupHost.Exe".
