Microsoft Corp. will try to make sure that its next-generation Windows 10 operating system is available for systems that will ship during the back-to-school (BTS) season, according to a media report. If the information is correct, then it is completely logical for the software giant to roll-out its new OS earlier than it promised several months ago.
Microsoft plans to release its next-gen OS to manufacturing (RTM) in June, not in August or September, as previously expected, reports Neowin. RTM in August means that systems featuring the new operating system will only be ready in October, which means that they will miss important back-to-school season.
Microsoft and PC makers need to sell more software and hardware to boost their revenues, therefore, speeding up release of Windows 10 makers perfect sense for the whole industry.
Since the software giant has been pretty aggressive with the release windows for the consumer preview of its new operating system, it is highly likely that Microsoft will manage to RTM its new OS in June.
The Redmond, Washington-based software developer is expected to reveal more details about its Windows 10 as well as its release schedule at the upcoming Build conference at the end of April.
Microsoft did not comment on the news-story.

KitGuru Says: While Microsoft could finalize Windows 10 operating system for personal computers and tablets by June, the version of the OS for smartphones, wearables and other possible devices could make it to the market only later this year.
