Windows 10 to launch to Insiders first, phased release follows
Windows 10 will launch on July 29

MANILA, Philippines – As Microsoft’s July 29 release date for Windows 10 draws closer, the company shared details on how it intends to provide the latest version of its operating system to consumers.

A July 2 post on the Windows Blog said that, among the consumer subset, Windows 10 would first go out to Windows Insiders.

After this, systems that have reserved an installation of Windows 10 will be notified in waves, with Microsoft saying that it will “listen, learn, and update the experience for all Windows 10 users” as the launch progresses.

Microsoft also said that if a system is not ready yet for the Windows 10 upgrade, it will attempt to provide additional details. For instance, users whose systems have incompatible applications or devices may receive contact information for application providers or device makers.

They can then follow up with those companies regarding timeframes for compatibility, in addition to having a better informed decision about whether or not they should upgrade in the meantime or wait for an app maker or device manufacturer to help them out.

A full list of necessary specifications and caveats is available on Microsoft’s website. –
