Microsoft's launch of Windows 10 will likely take place in late July, according to AMD. During AMD's latest earnings call last week, president and CEO Lisa Su revealed the launch timing for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. Answering a question on inventory plans, Su said, "With the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up."

That seems awfully early considering the stories you hear on Twitter about Windows 10's current state.

The problem is the (lack) of interest for developers. I do hope Windows 10 will change this but I still do not see any developers rushing in with apps that can be tested before launch.
It's suprisingly easy to build apps now on Windows, but the support is still not there.
Releasing Windows 10 faster only speaks disperation to not be behind the trend again.

People are also afraid of the software incompatibilities it will undoubtedly reveals hence forcing them to another round of paying upgrades to bring your application collection par with the OS.

Will this marketing Behemoth provide them with indisputable enhancements or it is just a planned racketeering on a 2 years basis ?

The software industry is drooling in anticipation, rubbing their hands. For instance, now that 4K displays are out, sure such an OS upgrade is a necessary evil to handle such high dpi resolutions.

This is boring and resources wasting.
