Many have been awaiting an official release date for Windows 10 and today we have that date, which is set for July 29th.

Microsoft has set out to release the biggest leap in the Windows operating system yet in Windows 10. What Windows 10 offers is a cleaner interface over previous versions with the most attractive feature being that the upgrade to Windows 10 is free for those that have a legally licensed version of Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.

With the release date set for July 29th, Microsoft is giving everyone with Windows 7 or 8 the opportunity to claim their free copy by reserving it now. This is a way to opt easily into the free upgrade ahead of time. From the current information available, those that don’t take advantage of the free upgrade reservation will not miss out on anything – you can still upgrade for free on or after the release date. As far as how far out from the release date that this offer will be valid, it has yet to be confirmed.

For those who have not looked into what Windows 10 offers, below is a quick video to demonstrate some of the major changes and how things flow. We expect the final release of Windows 10 to be a bit more polished with new animations and such versus the beta version in the demonstration you will see in the video below.

Highlighted changes/features of Windows 10

  1. Targeted feedback can be given directly to Microsoft
