Windows 10 Will Be Released On July 29th – Users Being Prompted To Reserve Their Free Upgrades Now
We’ve known since Windows 10 was first shown off that it would launch in summer of 2015, but until now, we haven’t had a release date. Thankfully Microsoft has finally given us that information. July 29th is the day to wait for.
Windows 10 will be released to the public on July 29th in more than 190 countries. Pricing has not been officially announced however users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 will be able to grab a free upgrade if they redeem it within a year of release. That means that users will have until July 29th, 2016 to redeem free Windows 10 if they qualify.
If you are a Windows 7 or 8 user, you’ll likely get a notification within the next day or two allowing you to reserve that free upgrade. All you have to do is enter your email address to reserve it. The download will be 3GB in size when Windows 10 is available (which could be before July 29th).
Windows 10 will also be on tablets and smartphones. OEMs will be able to pre-load Windows 10 on smaller devices for free as well which could result in lower cost hardware.
Microsoft is aiming to get Windows 10 on over a billion devices within the next 2 or 3 years. Do you think they can pull it off? Will you be downloading Windows 10? Let us know in the comments!Source: Windows Blog
