Windows 10, the long-awaited Microsoft operating system, could hit store shelves in July if AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, is to be believed. She made the announcement in a company earning call last week, and for many reasons, it makes sense.
Windows 10 launch date
“With the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up,” says Su.
In the past, Microsoft revealed that it plans to launch Windows 10 in 190 countries in the summer, which is earlier than expected since previous versions of the operating system have launched near the end of the year.
Microsoft did not provide a firm date for the release, but if Su is correct, then it means Windows 10 RTM is just around the corner. Then again, she have made a mistake since Windows 10 in its current state is far from ready, and Project Spartan is a browser that is practically unusable at the moment.
Because of these issues, we have reasons to believe Su might have made a mistake. There’s a good chance the July date is for the release of Windows 10 RTM, which leaves the full version to become publicly available in October.
If the July date is right on the money, then Microsoft would have to fix every Windows 10 issue in 3 months, and we doubt the company is capable of doing such a thing. Fans who are eagerly awaiting the release of the operating system can keep the July date in mind, but should not get angry if Microsoft make an official announcement that shoots down what Lisa Su had to say.
We should learn of Microsoft’s launch plans at the company’s Build 2015 event.
