Windows 10: release date, price, news and features
« on: 26 February 2015, 19:41:16 »


Update: Following the January 21 event, check out our post-event chats with Microsoft execs, like CEO Satya Nadella sharing his thoughts on the nitty gritty of Windows 10, which you can read below. Plus, it looks like the next Technical Preview update, Build #10022, is just around the corner:

With Windows 8 and now Windows 8.1, Microsoft tried not entirely successfully to make tablets part of a continuum that goes from number-crunching workstations and high-end gaming rigs through all-in-one touchscreen media systems and thin-and light notebooks down to slender touch tablets.

The general consensus is that it still has a long way to go to produce a unified OS. Recently, Microsoft publicly made the first steps to doing just that, with Windows 10. Skipping the Windows 9 name entirely, the Redmond, Wash. firm aims to step into the next generation of computing with the right foot forward.

Microsoft's Windows 10 Technical Preview is available through its Windows Insider Program website. You'll need a Microsoft account to get it, and it's worth bearing in mind that it's not the finished product, so it will be a bit rough around the edges.

While information regarding the Windows 10 Road Map slowly trickling through with each reveal event, this is what we know so far regarding the stymied release of Windows 10:

    Starting with Windows Technical Preview (WTP) for laptops and desktops back in September 2014, the preview build extended to select smartphones on February 12.
    The latest major WTP build launched on January 23, 2015 and was made available to download through Microsoft's Windows Insider Program.
    Currently, the WTP is at Build #9926, with Build #10022 said to land within the next week.
    The Technical Preview will end sharply on April 15 of next year, which conveniently leaves right off at...
    Microsoft's Build 2015 conference next April, at which the company will have even more announcements and likely issue a Windows 10 release date.
    The company promises a release to consumers and enterprise "later in the year" in 2015, Myerson said during the January 21 event.
