On Wednesday, the most awaited Windows 10 launches and people can get the update in a couple of clicks.

Though it may not be readily available within the week, The Verge said fans are preparing for it as soon as it is ready for download.

According to BidnessEtc, Microsoft has decided to give out free copies of its operating system (OS) to current users.

This move is reportedly part of the company's aim in "making the organization more efficient, with increased reach across the globe, as the company moves towards alternate avenues of revenue generation."

With the expected release of the Surface Pro next year and the recent release of a new OS, fans expect the company to "offer discrete graphics as an option, for those that want such a feature on the Surface platform."

According to The Motley Fool, the availability of Windows 10 is perfect for gamers after Microsoft enabled local streaming of Xbox One games to Windows tablets and computers.

It also said that the new OS was designed in such a way that it can be installed in smartphones, PCs, tablets and Xbox One consoles.

Streaming Xbox One games to Windows 10 tablets and PCs, according to the website, "enables a one-way cross-buy from the Xbox One to Windows 10 devices, in which games just have to be purchased once on the Xbox One to be played across multiple devices on a local network."

It also said that gamers can download or buy any game on a Windows 10 device then play it on the Xbox One.

"Considering that Windows is installed on over 90% of PCs worldwide, and around 13 million Xbox Ones have been sold, that feature could appeal to lots of gamers," it added.

For those who want to update their operating system to Windows 10, BidnessEtc said that it comes free for users with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

Up-to-date Windows will reportedly have an icon prompt on their task bar to inform them of the update.

If the user can't see this on Wednesday, BitnessEtc advised that, "clicking on the icon will open up Microsoft's Get Windows 10 app, which allows you to sign up to download the new OS and determine if your computer is compatible. Enter your email address into the system, and from there you're pretty much set."

A user should also have these minimum requirements as per BidnessEtc.

    Processor: 1GHz
    RAM: 1GB for 32-bit or 2GB for 64-bit
    Storage: 16GB for 32-bit or 20GB for 64-bit
    Graphics support: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
    Display: 800 x 600 resolution
