Windows 10: Late Summer or Early Fall

The thing I want to tell you about on Windows 10 is in the Windows 10 timeframe, which we plan to talk about the end-user consumer experiences in the early spring, we’ll have a developer preview and be able to talk to that in depth in the early summer timeframe. And then by next late summer and early fall we’ll be able to bring out this particular OS. That’s the current plan of record.

Matt and I predicted that Windows 10 would target an official launch for right after BUILD, which was in late April, sometime in June – just early enough to finally hit the back-to-school.

Late Summer would break out June, so maybe July, but probably August – or – just Fall in general then. Microsoft as usual1.
