Today is the day! Windows 10 is finally here. Microsoft has began rolling out the Windows 10 upgrade for existing users of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. The upgrade process is being handled by a reservation system that started a little while ago, which let you tell Microsoft that you intended to upgrade. This was done using the Get Windows 10 (GWX) app that has been in your system-tray.
Windows 10 will be launching in just two days and with that many people are anxious to get their hands on the new operating system. Microsoft will be offering consumers USB installers for an easier and faster way to install the operating system.
Windows 10 has attained RTM (release to market) status. This means it is at its end of product development and beginning its distribution. WIndows 10 RTM (build 10240) is the version that will be sent to PC OEM partners (to pre-install on new notebooks and desktops), physical media manufacturers, and to the team handling “Get Windows 10”, which is the tool that upgrades eligible Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 installations to Windows 10.
The official Windows 10 launch date keeps getting closer and closer and Microsoft has informed us on what features from previous versions of the operating system will not be in the final build of Windows 10.
Microsoft will release Windows 10 to the general public on July 29th 2015. This is when existing users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to upgrade for free, when new PCs with Windows 10 will ship, and when you will be able to buy Windows 10 in-store.
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation announced today that Dolby Audio is selected to be a part of the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system and will be natively supported by the new Microsoft Edge browser for the playback of web-based content as well as accessible by third-party Windows Store apps.
When Microsoft first launched Windows 8 back in October 2012 many users were excited about it, but it really failed to impress. After using it many users switched back to Windows 7 or just did not upgrade at all. Market share data provided by StatCounter shows that Windows 8 lost nearly half of users in the last 12 months.
Microsoft has just announced all of the editions for Windows 10, which includes 7 in total. The company has decided to unify Windows 10 across its PC, workstation and handheld platforms. Windows 10 has been highly anticipated and will bring with it DirectX 12 support, the new Edge web browser, Microsoft’s Cortana voice-based assistant, better Bing integration and more.
For quite a while now we have known Microsoft’s new web browser that replaces Internet Explorer and is shipping with Windows 10 as Project Spartan. Microsoft has finally got rid of the codename and has officially named the browser Microsoft Edge. The new name matches up with its rendering engine Edge.
Windows 10 has to be one of the most anticipated Windows OS in a very long time. Not only is Microsoft adding many features users actually want and bringing back the start menu, the OS will also come with the new DirectX 12 graphics API, which has already proved to be quite impressive. Microsoft has promised to have the operating system ready for summer, but we are still not sure when the final release date will be.
