Microsoft has announce details of how its new Windows 10 operating system will roll out around the world later this month when it launches on July 29th, 2015.
The new highly anticipated Windows 10 operating system is currently being rigorously tested on 5 million Windows Insiders systems, to make sure the quality of Windows 10 is ready for launch.
However on launch day not everyone who is looking to install and upgrade to the new Windows 10 operating system will be able to do so. Microsoft explains :
Windows 10: Preparing to Upgrade One Billion Devices : Soon, we will give a build of Windows 10 to our OEM partners so they can start imaging new devices with Windows 10. The new devices our partners are working on are very exciting, I can’t wait to hear your feedback as you get a chance to use them.
Soon after, we will distribute a build of Windows 10 to retailers all over the world, so they can assist their customers with upgrades of newly purchased devices that were originally imaged with Windows 8.1. Look for this sticker for assurance that our OEM partners have proactively tested a device for compatibility with Windows 10.
Starting on July 29, we will start rolling out Windows 10 to our Windows Insiders. From there, we will start notifying reserved systems in waves, slowly scaling up after July 29th. Each day of the roll-out, we will listen, learn and update the experience for all Windows 10 users.
If you reserved your copy of Windows 10, we will notify you once our compatibility work confirms you will have a great experience, and Windows 10 has been downloaded on your system
