Windows 7 and 8.1 users, as well as Windows Phone 8.1 customers.
If you have been waiting for the launch of the Microsoft Windows 10, the wait could well be soon over. While Microsoft has been saying that they will launch the latest operating system ‘later this year’, they have recently announced that Windows 10 should launch sometime during the summer.
Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8.1 users, along with Windows Phone 8.1 customers.
Microsoft had also announced that Microsoft 10 upgrade will also be available to ‘non-genuine’ or pirated copies of the software. However, the company later clarified to Ars Technica that the copies will remain illegitimate.
For those who wish to experience the magic of Windows 10, the technical preview for the same is available for laptop and desktop. Microsoft Windows 10 expected specifications include a Cortana search bar with some updated apps. It will be support all the apps that are currently being offered through Windows Store.
Old time users of Windows can expect some relief because Windows 10 will have the traditional start button which has been missing from the recent variants. Interestingly, the layout is expected to be similar to Windows 7. Window users were missing the start button and most of them did not find Windows 8 to be of their liking due to this restriction.
Apps and enhanced search button are some of the new additives in Windows 10 that are likely to impress average users. In addition, the presence of Continuum will ensure that Windows 10 interface adapts to multiple devices and situations. This will vary if you are using a desktop, tablet or a hybrid PC.
Windows 10 will also come with the additional facility of management of security updates, which has been another Windows users. The expected quadrant layout that enables users to manage up to four apps at any given time would add to the appeal of Windows 10.
Windows 10 release date remains unknown but it expected to release by the summer of 2015. The software is under aggressive development and according to sources at Microsoft. Analysts earlier suggested April as the tentative release date but the wait looks a bit longer.
