Windows 10 to launch this summer in 190 countries

Microsoft has announced in a blog post that their latest OS, Windows 10, will be launching this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.

Microsoft didn’t specify the exact date though but affirmed that it will be a free upgrade for customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 for the first year after it is released.


Microsoft will also partner with big companies in China such as Lenovo where the company will offer Windows 10 upgrade services at 2,500 service centers and select retail stores in China. Tencent and Qihu 360 will also offer Windows 10 as a free upgrade to its customers. And Xiaomi, where a select group of Xiaomi Mi 4 power users will be invited to help test Windows 10 and contribute to its future release later this year.

    Give us at least 10 reasons to be excited with this. OK pa win7 ko sa PC/Laptop. Windows Phone naman konti pa rin mga matitinong apps. Yung iba nag-pull-out pa.

      Sa tingin ko kung ayaw talaga ng isang tao na mag-upgrade, hindi na kailangan ng reason/s. Hehe. Kanya-kanyang na lang yan. Walang pilitan kumbaga. Haha. :)

      Kung gamer ka, at some point baka i-consider mo mag-upgrade sa Windows 10 dahil sa DX12 na hindi supported sa lower OS versions ng Windows, including Windows 7. Isang reason pa lang iyon.

      Almost walang legit buyer ang naeexcite sa release o bumili ng bagong Operating System.

      Saka majority ng PC users walang pakialam sa OS basta nagagamit nila PC nila ok na yun, kahit free upgrade pa yan o ano.

      Ang mga legit buyer ginagamit ang OS hanggang masira ang laptop/desktop.

      Kahit nung lumabas ang XP saka Win7, 8 halos lahat ng legit buyers masaya na sa current OS nila.

      Usually ang naeexcite lang eh yung nagpipirate kasi wala namn silang gagastusin sa pag-gamit ng bagong OS.

      I am a legit buyer and I am excited. I own a lenovo laptop with licsenced OS and using windows 10 technical preview for the second boot of my laptop and I love it. I like it for being an improved version of windows 8 from its fast boot and shutdown, to its new interface, and all available features lacking on windows 8.

    That is the northern hemisphere summer and the first day of which is on June 20th/21st.

    Inb4 the say it’ll be around Spring season (which is around April or May locally), now most likely it’ll be released around July or August. Damn I’m so excited for this.

    @Cool Let me correct you, we don’t have summer. Wet and Dry seasons only. We just used to call it summer. Just my 2 cents.
