Microsoft is all set to begin rolling out Windows 10 by the end of the month but rather than dumping the update in a big pile the company is taking a more phased approach.
Millions of people have apparently reserved the Windows 10 update, but not all of them will receive Microsoft’s latest software on July 29 as earlier expected.
In a blog post, Windows boss Terry Myerson said that Windows Insiders will be the first to get the update, followed by users who’ve reserved the update in waves which will scale up after July 29.
User’s who’ve reserved the Windows 10 update will receive a notification once Microsoft tests the compatibility of their PC and the software has been downloaded.
For business users, Windows 10 Pro will be available alongside Windows 10 Home on July 29. Volume licensing customers will be able to download Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education on starting on August 1.
While the company declined to comment on just how many users each of these waves will consist, Microsoft did confirm that it will continually look for feedback from users to find and eventually fix any bugs that might occur.
As it turns out, you might have to wait just a little longer after all to get your hands on Windows 10, but if what we’ve seen so far is as good as it is, we could soon be playing with a game-changing piece of software.
