You might not get to upgrade to Windows 10 on launch day

Windows 10 is finally coming out at the end of this month after around nine months of public testing. However, while the Windows Insider beta users will be able to upgrade to the release version on day one, Microsoft's roll out plan means that others will be left waiting.

It is usually a fairly smart move to wait a little bit to see how a new OS performs for everyone else but there are plenty who would rather get it over and done with. Today, Microsoft detailed its roll out plan for Windows 10, with those currently testing the OS getting the update on the 29th of July, the rest of those registered for the upgrade will receive it in waves.


You will be notified when your update is ready either way, this roll out announcement is more just to let people know that they may not get the update on day one, although Microsoft will be updating users in pretty large waves.

In addition to all of that, enterprise users and schools that buy licenses in bulk will get their keys on the 1st of August. You can read Microsoft's full blog post on the matter, HERE.
