After the end of Windows support for XP, the next significant event will be the release of Windows 10. The software giant, Microsoft Operating Systems Group chief Terry Myerson revealed the initial Windows 10. Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner described those plans a bit more.
Turner mentioned various aspects of which the focus was Windows 10, along with the software company’s evolving business model. This was covered in his appearance at Credit Suisse technology conference in Phoenix, Ariz.
Turner shared that Microsoft is still on track to talk about the end-user consumer experiences in the early spring of 2015. The developer preview will be released early summer.
“And then by late summer and early fall we’ll be able to bring out this particular OS. That’s the current plan of record.” Said Turner
Actually, this timeline is similar to what Myerson shared a few months back. As per Myerson’s Windows 10 timeline there is something known as September reveal early this year, a developer reveal event after that and then a launch wave.
The software giant is going to show off the January Technology Preview of Windows 10, as well as a first preview of the Windows 10 mobile SKU that is going to work on Windows Phones, ARM tablets and Intel tablets, as per some of the sources. When it comes to the mobile version of Windows 10, it is not expected to include a desktop mode as part of the Operating System, while the current desktop version of Windows 10 will work as soon as when it ships.
The software company’s officials mentioned that the Build 2015, Microsoft’s main Windows developer event, will happen last week of April.
Windows 10 developer preview coming in early summer is something confusing. Since Microsoft’s new strategy for providing test builds delivering regular updates to Windows 10 for those, who are interested testers. This might be the reason and what Turner has meant by a developer preview.
Myerson has made it sound like late summer or early fall that was to be the official delivery ship target. Those who are wondering about when Microsoft will debut the Metro-Style touch version of Office; they may arrive around the same time as Windows 10 because that makes sense.
There has been end of Windows support for Windows XP, and mainstream support for Windows 7, these users are looking for a better option than Windows 8. Windows 10 looks like the perfect switch.
