Microsoft will release Windows 10 on July 29

We have known for a long time that this summer Microsoft will release its latest OS, called Windows 10 but until this moment we haven’t had a release date – therefore there was speculation that the new OS would be released sometime in August for the back-to-school season. It turns out that this information is incorrect.

Microsoft has officially announced that Windows 10 will ship on July 29 this year. The new OS will be available in 190 countries around the world on this day as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. On July 29 all you will have to do is take a look at your Notification Area in the Taskbar and you should see a Windows icon, that, when clicked, will allow you to upgrade to Windows 10. As mentioned before Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for 1 year after its release so users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to get the free upgrade until July 29, 2016.

It is unclear when users will be able to purchase installation DVDs of Windows 10 but given the new OS will be out on July 29 we expect to see it in stores the same day or the week after.
