Microsoft Details the Upgrade Plans for Windows 10

Posted: 10:19AM

Windows 10, the latest and greatest operating system from Microsoft, is due to arrive at the end of this month. It is a free upgrade for the first year for anyone who wants to take advantage of the offer, which is a fantastic gesture from the folks in Redmond. OEMs and retailers will be receiving their versions of the OS before long to ensure new and recent PC purchases are ready to go. If you're curious exactly how and when you can get your free copy of Windows 10 Home or Pro, wonder no more, as Microsoft has provided the details on when we can begin the download. Starting on July 29, all Windows Insiders will be the first to get the official version of Windows 10. So if you've already been testing it out through the Insiders program, you'll get it first. After that, Windows 10 will roll out in waves to everyone who has reserved a copy on their Windows 7 or 8 machine. All reservations will receive a notice once Windows 10 has been downloaded and is ready to go, so just hold tight once we get to July 29.

The waves should be rather large, but some people may not get Windows 10 as soon as others. It isn't an entirely bad idea, since those still waiting for the new OS can hear from others exactly how it is working. If a system is not yet ready to receive Windows 10, Microsoft will provide solutions on how to make it compatible, and it is up to you whether or not to download Windows 10 before then. For businesses and schools that have purchased Windows 10 Enterprise or Education keys in bulk, those will be sent out on August 1.
