Microsoft is anticipating that there could be some errors involved with the new operating system and does not want to overload servers by making it available to all users on July 29, which is likely why they are releasing it this way.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 is supposed to be released on July 29, but users might not actually get it until sometime after. Workers in some stores will be able to upgrade users to Windows 10 themselves, according to Microsoft’s blog post.
With Windows 10, Microsoft aims to get back on track with the operating system that still powers a majority of personal computers and serves as the backbone of numerous world’s businesses. Microsoft announced previously that Windows 10 Professional will cost $199 (131, AU$262), but did not specify pricing for markets outside the U.S. The leaked Windows 10 release note also mention blocking of an unnamed “OEM driver” which affected the camera. What are you most excited for with the release of Windows 10?
The blurred statement does not reveal to when and how will the users get the new updated Windows 10.
TechRepublic’s sister site ZDNet also recently published a guide for people running early builds of Windows 10 under the Windows Insider Program, detailing how to create ISO files from the OS that can be used for a clean install. And Microsoft did indicate that there will be a path for power users to grab Windows 10 manually on or after July 29, though no specifics on how that might work were provided.
A couple of hours ago, Windows chief Terry Myerson posted a detailed blog about the mechanics of rolling out Windows 10, titled “Windows 10: Preparing to Upgrade One Billion Devices”.
So, for business and education editions, you should plan to obtain and test Windows 10 to ensure that the first iteration meets your needs and then watch as new features are rolled out over time. After the launch of the final version of Windows 10, the system will put popups regarding features that the user is already familiar with out of sight.
Windows 10 – from what we have seen on the preview builds so far – has been shaping out to be a pretty solid improvement over the two years old, Windows 8.1.
