Windows 10 is eagerly awaited by our tile-crunching friends and they should be delighted by reading these few lines. Microsoft has indeed announced very good news: the next version of its operating system will hit the market on July 29th.
As happiness never comes alone, it will be possible to enjoy it in no less than 190 countries by this date, and France is obviously one of the lucky ones. The same goes for our European neighbors, moreover, and for the Americans.
In addition, the update will be offered to anyone with a computer running Windows 7 or Windows 8.x. If this is your case, you will not have to pay anything to benefit from it. Be careful though because this offer is limited in time.
If you want to get started, you will have to make up your mind before July 29, 2016. After this date, you will have to get your hands on the wallet.
You will have one year to update your computer for free. Then you will have to go to the cash register.
The price of the licenses has not yet been announced by Microsoft. However, dealer Newegg listed OEM versions overnight on their website.
This information should be taken with caution, of course, but it would range from $ 109.99 for the Home version to $ 149.99 for the Professional version.
Some of you may have noticed it, but Microsoft has also deployed a message to all computers running Windows 7 and Windows 8, offering them to “reserve” the update now. If you want to do so, then just click on the appropriate button and enter your email address in the field dedicated to this purpose.
Finally, note that the publisher has also deployed a new build (10130) for the Technical Preview of Windows 10. It is available to all Insiders and it brings a lot of cosmetic changes. If you want to know more, I refer you to the article published on the Microsoft blog, at this address .
I remind you that Windows 10 will be available in seven different editions: the Home version, the Mobile version, the Pro version, the Enterprise version, the Mobile Enterprise version, the Education version and the IoT Core version. Each will correspond to a very specific use, of course.
