Is the free upgrade to Windows 10 going to be applicable only to Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 or also to Windows XP?

Only Win 7 - 8 and 8.1

I think that there will be an Upgrade Path but you will need to pay for it.

The alternative is to Upgrade to W7 now, but then you will have to buy a copy of W7.

The great unknown is: Which will be the cheapest route?

On XP it will be a fresh install only. You will have to run a compatibility tool for your system, no doubt, as to whether the system will run it.

If you are interested become a windows insider and get a copy of the preview now and then you will get the free upgrade insider program
