Windows 10 Availability Date July 29

Laptops and Tablets running on Windows 10 will go on sale starting July 29. Existing users of Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 will also get the free upgrade around the same time.

Windows 10 Mobile and other Windows 10 variants for other classes of devices like the Xbox and internet of things (IoT) will launch at a later date.

I have already received a request to reserve a free update on my Windows 8.1 laptop, which I have already obliged.

What’s New in Windows 10?

The following are some of the new features on the new Windows 10 operating system.

Office on Windows – Users of the new operating system will have access to universal Windows applications for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint separately – that is, in addition to a full-featured Office desktop suite. These applications can be used without a keyboard or mouse through touch-first controls.

Microsoft Edge – This is the new browser that will replace the ‘ancient’ Internet Explorer that many users have grown to hate over time. The Edge browser is designed for faster web surfing and comes with other cool features that make the experience more enjoyable, including integrated commenting feature.

Cortana and Windows Hello – Windows will come pre-loaded with the full release of Cortana, “the world’s first truly personal assistant.” This virtual assistant, which can be quickly accessed using a shortcut and controlled by typing or talking, allows you perform quick searches and set important reminders easily. It can also provide weather, location and flight information, amongst others. A Windows Hello feature greets you by your name “and with a smile” every time you log in.

Continuum – The latest Windows operating system also comes with a Continuum feature that makes it possible for hybrids or 2-in-1 devices to transform seamlessly. The feature alters the interface of your device based on orientation. Continuum also enables a Windows 10 phone to be easily transformed into a PC by connecting a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Start Menu – Microsoft has done something about the Start menu of Windows 8, which many people did not like. The new Start menu is designed in somewhat similar way to the old Start menu users had been accustomed to.
