    Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 Is “Almost Ready”


    A few weeks ago, we exclusively reported that Windows 10 RTM was almost ready for launch, and now we have the confirmation that Microsoft is very close to completing its work on the new operating system.

    On the sideline for the BUILD 2015 developer conference, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, confirmed that Windows 10 is “pretty close to be done,” but he also revealed that there's still some work to complete in other sections, such as apps.

    Windows 10 is projected to launch in the summer, with some sources pointing to August as the release date, so Microsoft still has a month or two to reach RTM before getting ready for the big launch.

    “The core sections of the OS, they're pretty close to done. Then you get to the shell, it's probably 85 percent done. Then you get to the apps, and they are really only 65 percent done. In part that's because each part of the layer cake has to depend on the step below it, and because we can update the apps more readily. Those teams have more time. The core is pretty close to where it is going to be,” Belfiore is quoted as saying by The Reg at BUILD.

    Sounds good, let us hope that MS doesn't find an excuse to put BACK the release?

    It would appear AMD CEO Lisa Su may have let something slip.

    I don't know why that site keep questioning if windows 7 update will be free, they must not read other articles or forums.




    Microsoft’s Terry Myerson said that Windows 10 would be free for Windows 8.1 users but only during the first year of its release. The situation for Windows 7 users is a little less clear. Microsoft had confirmed that he two most recent versions of Windows would get a free upgrade but whether that means Windows 7 or Windows 8 is anyone’s guess.

    I think that they're heading in the right direction with this OS. Keeping in mind that not everyone will be happy with it but that's to be expected.

    I'm actually looking forward to the final product. And for those who don't like W10.....well they still can use W7 or W8.1 or Linux or Apple or Google, etc. so there are plenty of choices.
