Windows 10 arriving soon
Su’s revelation may not entirely be accurate, and Microsoft has yet to comment on the matter. Microsoft still has not confirmed any release date for the next operating system beyond the revelation that it will arrive this summer. In March, the company’s chief, Terry Myerson, said Windows 10 is set to arrive this summer, and it will be available in 190 countries.
Many others doubt the new OS will arrive in July as Microsoft needs to work out the bugs and unpolished features within the system. There is still a good chance AMD has knowledge of the upcoming Windows release. Microsoft’s upcoming Build event is set to take place later this month. This event will most likely be the time Microsoft shares details on Windows 10.
