  • Microsoft Announces July 29th Release Date for Windows 10


    On Monday, Microsoft announced that the availability of Windows 10 will be pegged for July 29th.

    Windows 10 includes a large variety of improvements over the existing Windows 8.1, such as a redesigned Start Menu that looks familiar to previous versions of Windows, the Cortana smart voice assistant, Xbox One integration, the new Microsoft Office, the new Microsoft Edge Web browser, built-in applications, and much more.

    Windows 10 takes a lot of the good features of the modern Windows 8 and combines them with the good features of the familiar Windows 7 to bring an experience that users are going to love.

    Microsoft's promotional announcement video is included for you below:



    Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Windows 7 or later users; users of older operating systems will have to pay for the upgrade. You can sign up for Microsoft's Windows 10 launch to upgrade as early as possible when it's available. You can learn how to reserve your Windows 10 upgrade via Microsoft's 'how to upgrade' Web page at this link.

      I find so many users afraid of upgrading to Windows 8.1, never mind Windows 10. Should be interesting to see the adoption rate/#'s in the end.

      I have a hunch it will be adopted, for those on Win XP/7 that view Win8 as scary, seeing the Win10 might result in "oh, that's not too bad." Plus, it is free for Win7/8.1 users, so that will certainly help with adoptions rate.

      It is, I've been running the Tech Preview for both Win10 Enterprise and Windows Server. Been a lot of improvements during this time. I have a 120GB SSD on one of the computers and it stays pretty speedy. I hope you have a HDD data drive as well. Having solely a 120GB drive would be painful nowadays.

      I love how Microsoft forgot to photoshop the "XPS" refection out of the glass trackpad when they originally posted this press release.

      I'm probably the weird one but I like Windows 8, not 8.1 or 10. Why? Microsoft is pushing for integration into it's own ecosystem. Skydrive, Cortana all those things you can't remove. Windows is seen as a platform for adding anything YOU want to it.

      My laptop came with WIN8 and some of those junk apps, you can uninstall them but they still waste space. The only way you really delete it is to change folder permissions on CProgram Files\WindowsApps and delete them. Annoying but fixable. With 8.1 things like Skydrive are too integrated to remove and since I don't use it, that sucks (I already use dropbox/box/drive already). Right now I can tune my computer EXACTLY how I want it, which is what windows has always been about. That's my rant anyway.

      I tried to run the tech preview today, but it gave me a weird BIOS error when I tried to install it. Stupid secure boot.
