We’re only hours away from July 29th, the date when Windows 10 will start its global rollout. The platform will debut across 190 countries, as a free download for those who use licensed Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. In the meantime Microsoft published a dedicated Windows 10 launch website, that you can access here.
The site includes details and tutorials about the platform, as well as people getting excited about Windows 10 and tweeting with the hashtag #UpgradeYourWorld. All the intro videos you’ve seen about Windows 10, the Edge browser, Cortana and notifications are included here. Product videos, screenshots and a product guide are included on the same website.
Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 were a letdown for most users, so Windows 10 can make or break Microsoft for the entirety of its future. Judging by the impressions of the preview versions released so far, Windows 10 is looking good. Multitasking is available by snapping windows into the screen and working with multiple desktops is now more fluid, plus the Action Center also helps.
The Task view also takes multitasking to a new level and organizes every window in a smarter way. Expect a gradual rollout, probably finalized in a week, or two, maybe even a month.
