    Windows 10 RTM: June is the target

    Microsoft is moving at a very quick pace with Windows 10, from new technical previews being pushed at a semi-regular pace, to also building Windows 10 for phones at the same time. It goes without saying that all the engineers at Redmond are putting in long hours to bring you technical previews that have already been released, but there is light at the end of the tunnel for the final build.

    The next logical question is when will the OS be completed? We are hearing that Microsoft is targeting the month of June at this time, but as with any timeline, this could slip.
    Why is the company targeting June instead of its traditional August release? Well, the month of August did not make a lot of sense if you were trying to sell licenses and devices for the back to school market. Previously, when an OS hit RTM in August, hardware from OEMs would not be ready until October which is good for the holidays but misses the back to school shoppers.
    So, Microsoft is doing the logical thing here and will push for Windows 10 to RTM in June so that it can have devices ready for the school shoppers, like the next generation Surface.

    June is not a good date - at least for Europe. Everybody is or goes on vacation and that is certainly not the time that people buy computers. Maybe it is different in the US where people do not have 6 weeks vacation and don't go to the beaches for 4 weeks. But I doubt that Microsoft and the PC manufacturers would want to miss a good start on half of their market.

    As I understand it, RTM is when manufacturers (and folks with MSDN accounts etc.) get it, not when it appears in the shops? So it wouldn't be widely available to the public in June.

    I seem to remember that when 8.1 hit RTM, you still couldn't get it unless you had MSDN/Technet etc.?
