While Microsoft never ever made it clear as to when exactly will it launch the Windows 10 OS for the public (apart from that vague “this summer” reference), AMD CEO Lisa Su dropped a sort of tip on the release date, during the company’s earnings call today.
Su said, that a public release of Windows 10 is expected by the end of July, making it quite in sync with what Microsoft has been touting about the release. Su said,
What we also are factoring in is, you know, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up.
Microsoft has never been definitive about a release date for Windows 10. Having said that, the Redmond giant has been toiling up with its engineers hard enough, which is pretty much evident from the faster build releases which we have been seeing in for past few months.
Windows 10 is Microsoft’s attempt at designing an OS which could connect all of the hardware, ranging from Embedded chips to smartphones, from tablets to PCs to consoles and large screens.
While giving up an exact launch date would definitely create just the right amount of buzz you want before a major launch, it would also create a deadline for Microsoft to bring out a product as major as Windows 10 in the set time-line, or eventually push up the timeline.
So pulling of a Windows 10 public release in 3 months from now ? Well,lets just hope the stunt gets pulled off !
