Microsoft held back on announcing a release date for Windows 10, to the chagrin of developers and the press corps alike, but there were hints dropped at the Build conference and speculation by the media has been rampant.
Microsoft’s Terry Myerson said the OS will be available “this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.”
During a recent conference call, Lisa Su, CEO of Microsoft chip supplier AMD, let slip that her company is anticipating a Windows 10 launch “at the end of July.”
Back in February, Windows blog Neowin cited sources indicating a June release, to allow for some lead time for manufacturers to get products out for the busy back-to-school shopping season.
Online resource TechRadar took a more technical approach to its investigation by pointing out that summer officially ends with the arrival of the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22. So we’ll definitely see Windows 10 by then.
