Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will be launching this summer and the company has said that it will launch in 190 countries.
The company will offer a free upgrade of Windows 10 to users who are running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 for the first year after it is released.
Today at the renewed Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, I had the honor of speaking about Windows 10 and the innovation and opportunity it offers our valued partners. China is a global epicenter for innovation and we’re excited to be working with the area’s leading hardware and software companies to develop ground-breaking devices and consumer experiences that will help shape the future of Windows 10.
We continue to make great development progress and shared today that Windows 10 will be available this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages. Windows has always been global with more than 1.5 billion users around the world and here in China hundreds of millions of PCs operate Windows today. That’s why it was particularly fun to show our latest global innovation, Windows Hello, on stage for the first time, and to feature a number of Windows 10 customizations for the China market, such as Cortana in Mandarin.
Microsoft has not given a specific release date for Windows 10, all we know is that it is coming some time in the summer, you can find out more details at the link below.
