Windows 10 will likely be unavailable on new PCs on launch day

Although Microsoft has high hopes for Windows 10, the new OS seems to be difficult to obtain – some time ago we reported that not all customers will be able to get the new OS on launch day and now we know that there will likely be no new PCs with Windows 10 again on the launch day.

The problem with this is that Microsoft seems to have abandoned its usual launch sequence. Previous editions of Windows were ready long before the official launch day and copies of them were distributed to PC manufacturers and hardware makers in order for them to write suitable drivers. Things are different with Windows 10 – Microsoft will likely release Windows 10 to PC makers just days before the official launch date, which happens to be July 29, so PC makers will not have enough time to test the new OS and design PCs that are capable of handling it in an ideal way.

New computers with Windows 10 on them will arrive this fall for the back-to-school season when everything should be okay. Strangely enough it was Microsoft that denied this information although it came from Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi, who is the company’s vice president of Windows and device marketing. A spokeswoman from Microsoft has said there would be Windows 10-based computers from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Acer on launch day.

We’ll see who’s right and not in two weeks time.
