Windows 10 To Hit The World In July: At Least For Some

June 3, 2015


After what seemed like forever, Microsoft will be finally releasing the long-awaited Windows 10 OS! Starting off with July 29th, all PCs and tablets running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to get a free upgrade, including the Start menu, whose dismissal from Windows 8 outraged many users.

The OS will be available for other devices later this year.

The Microsoft company also indicated that at least seven Windows 10 builds will be released in time, thus expanding the OS’s features even more.

New Features

The anticipated Windows 10 will include Microsoft’s personal digital assistant Cortana, integrated into a new browser called Microsoft Edge.

The 10th Windows OS will also include some hefty novelties, such as Windows Hello with its biometric authentication. It will also greet you by name!

The Office suite also got a makeover, along with new applications for its programs.

Who Can Get The Free Upgrade?

In order to get the free upgrade, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users have to register within one year. So, if you’re using Vista, XP, Enterprise editions or pirated versions, you won’t be able to reserve the new limited operating system.

Not Exactly Completely Free

Unless you have a desktop or laptop that will be able to fully exploit Windows 10’s new features, the odds are you are probably going to have to buy a new PC or laptop. Although your existing device will probably work pretty well, it won’t manage to show you’re the full Windows 10 experience. Windows Hello will most likely not work.
