Microsoft confirms Windows 10 32-Bit, puts an end to Odd rumors

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has confirmed in a very short tweet that a 32-bit version of Windows 10 will also be released, explaining that there are still millions of PCs out there that use a 32-bit configuration, so it’s pretty obvious that a dedicated Windows build is needed for these computers.

A long time ago, there were some people who claimed that Microsoft’s executives were pondering a plan to move Windows 10 entirely to 64-bit setups, thus abandoning 32-bit completely and pretty much forcing users to upgrade their hardware configurations or stay with an older Windows version.

There’s no doubt that this was a very, very risky plan and if Microsoft indeed considered it, it’s easy to see why the company actually dropped it in the end.

Windows 10 will indeed be available on both 32- and 64-bit versions and the Technical Preview builds that can be downloaded right now are living proof that Microsoft will stick to its traditional plan of tackling both configurations.

According to sources, Windows 10 is very likely to reach RTM during the summer, while the public launch could take place in the fall of 2015.

More details on everything related to Windows 10 will, however, be provided to us at the January 21 event which will take place in Redmond and will also be streamed online.

In addition to Windows 10 plans, Microsoft is also expected to detail some other projects, including Windows Phone 10, which could in the end hit the market with a completely new name.
