Microsoft has announced the release date of Windows 10, which it will be made available on July 29th.
For a quick check upon the new OS’s features, here’s a trailer for it.
Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for owners of Windows 7 or 8.1, and a new taskbar app is prompting owners of either OS to “reserve” their upgrade ahead of time.
I can’t imagine they’re planning to run out, but if you want to be safe in the knowledge that your copy is secure, the option is there.
This new Windows will offer some new features, including a semi-nude blue lady who can remind you to pay your electric bill, and a browser you can draw on. For PC gamers, the main reason to upgrade is the ability to utilize DirectX 12, which will be exclusive to the OS.
My question to those who skipped Windows 8: are you planning to make the jump to Windows 10 directly?
