Microsoft has just officially announced that it will release Windows 10 on 29 July.
Familiar, yet better than ever, Windows 10 brings back the Start menu you know and love. Windows 10 is faster than ever before, with quick startup and resume. And Windows 10 provides the most secure platform ever, including Windows Defender for free anti-malware protection, and being the only platform with a commitment to deliver free ongoing security updates for the supported lifetime of the device.
Marketing blabber aside, the update will be free for the first year for all Windows 7 and 8 users. You’ll get a notification in your notification area which will allow you to reserve your Windows 10 upgrade.
