Windows 10 will make its public debut at the end of July, according to AMD president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su, who seemingly revealed Microsoft’s target accidentally during a recent earnings call.
Microsoft has already promised that Windows 10 will be released this summer, but of course, that’s a very vague deadline; it could mean late May, it could mean early August.
But Microsoft’s aim right now is to make the software available in late July, Su said.
Su added that Microsoft hopes to make Windows 10 available in time for “back to school” promotions, which could dramatically boost the platform’s early adoption rates. But it’s important to remember that this is yet to be confirmed by Microsoft.
Late July is just three months away, and based on recent Windows 10 preview builds, there’s still a lot of work to be done. In fact, many were skeptical Microsoft would meet its release deadline when it initially promised a launch this summer.
While the end of July may have been Microsoft’s goal, then, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will meet its target. The very reason why it didn’t make that target public could be because the company was uncertain it could deliver in time.
Nevertheless, it’s good to see Microsoft is working hard to get Windows 10 out to the public as quickly as possible, which is great news for the many millions of Windows users worldwide.
The new OS brings a whole host of features and improvements that we’re all looking forward to, and given that it’s a free upgrade for anyone using Windows 7 and above within the first year, it will surely be immensely popular.
