Microsoft spoke about the deployment of Windows 10 around the world
Since before the release of Windows 10 is less than four weeks, Microsoft has decided to provide certain clarifications regarding the procedure of update propagation.
First, the company emphasizes the great success achieved during one month after the launch of the backup system: according to Microsoft, the update has already signed up one million users.
Another important detail is the fact that upgrading to Windows 10 will be released in several stages (predictable circumstance, given the large number of devices that claim to update).
According to Microsoft, soon partners will receive the Windows 10 build (RTM) installation on new devices. (This means that the leaked RTM version can be a matter of a few days). Immediately after that, Microsoft will send the operating system to stores and retailers worldwide. In stores computers with Windows 8.1, which have been carefully tested for compatibility with Windows 10 will be marked with a special sticker.
The upgrading process starts on July 29. From that day on the computers of users who made a «reservation», will begin to receive notification an update is available. However, the number will be the first participants in the program Windows Insider. The upgrade process will continue from day to day.
If the system will be compatible with Windows 10, you will be notified about the opportunity to begin updating. If your computer is incompatible or not fully compatible, Microsoft will provide additional information, including the contact details of the supplier of the incompatible hardware or software. However, in most cases the upgrade process can continue.
Clients who adhere to volume licensing (Volume Licensing) will be able to download Windows 10 and Windows 10 Enterprise Education through the VLSC (Volume License Service Center), starting from 1 August.
