Microsoft to launch Windows 10 in late summer 2015

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has already launched Windows 10 Technical Preview, and everyone’s wondering what’s coming next for the operating system, especially because 2015 is expected to be a really busy year for both the company itself and its users.

Now a new report published by ZDNet and citing statements made by Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner at a Credit Suisse Technology Conference reveals that Microsoft is indeed planning to roll out Windows 10 next year, most likely in late summer or early fall.

Details are obviously very scarce right now, not necessarily because Microsoft wants to keep everything secret, but most likely because it’s yet to decide on the release schedule for the next operating system, as it all depends on how well the development process advances.

At this point, there’s a lot of information regarding Microsoft’s Windows 10 plans coming through unofficial channels, so it’s really hard to know what’s true and what’s not.

But Turner explained that, in early spring 2015, the company should be ready to discuss more about its end-user consumer experiences on Windows 10, which most likely means that this could be the date when everyone might receive the eagerly anticipated Windows 10 Consumer Preview.

At the same time, he added that a developer preview should be ready in early summer, again without any other specifics. Build 2015 will take place in the last week of April 2015, so this could actually be the moment when Microsoft might unveil the build.

“And then by next late summer and early fall we'll be able to bring out this particular OS. That's the current plan of record,” he added, confirming that Windows 10 should be here in less than 12 months.

January will also bring us new information about Windows 10, as Microsoft is expected to host a dedicated press conference that could bring us the so-called January Technical Preview along with an early build of Windows Phone 10.

Some sources indicated that the January Technical Preview could be the Consumer Preview build, but that’s very unlikely when listening to Turner’s words. The CP build would only arrive in early spring, he said, so end users might have to wait a few more months before getting a dedicated Windows 10 version for their PCs.

The latest Windows 10 build that can be downloaded is 9879, through official channels, and 9888, as an unofficial release, but not matter which one you try, there still are incomplete features and bugs more or less affecting the overall performance of the OS.
