Microsoft has set the release date for Windows 10 and it’s July 29, 2015. The latest version of Windows will arrive in the summer and will be available as a free upgrade to Windows PCs and tablets starting from the launch date.
Windows 10 is the latest addition to the Microsoft Windows OS family. Microsoft is looking to revive its Windows platform by introducing a lot of new changes to the Windows 10. The biggest thing to note about the newest Windows version is that it will be available for free for all users who have bought a PC or a tablet running Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 during the past six years. The Windows 10 upgrade can be reserved by users running these Windows OS from Microsoft website after following some initial steps.
Another big change in the new Windows 10 platform is that it is unanimous among different platforms. Microsoft is not branding Windows 10 separate for Windows Phone or Windows PC.
