Microsoft Tries The Nearly Impossible With Windows 10 Launch
Microsoft's Windows 10 launches Wednesday, and critics agree it's a much better all-in-one operating system than Windows 8.By Leah Becerra | July 27, 2015
Windows 10 launches July 29 — that's 12:01 a.m. Wednesday if you're counting down the minutes until you can get Windows 8 off your computer. (Video via Microsoft)
Some slightly bad news though: If you're hoping to hit the upgrade button right after midnight, Microsoft has said it's releasing the OS in "waves, slowly scaling up after" the release date. Meaning beta testers get first dibs. (Video via Microsoft)
The Verge has said, "The intention seems to be playing it safe and making sure that Windows 10 is getting a good response and running smoothly." If that's true, Windows deserves huge props.
