New Windows 10 Details Revealed by Partner Documents




Microsoft has already presented Windows 10 in a conference on Tuesday, but the company only showed the operating system at work without providing any details on when exactly users could get the final bits of the product.

Now thanks to confidential partner documents published by BAV0 we know that Windows 10 should see daylight in the summer of 2015, after more than six months of public testing. At the same time, the leaked documents, which you can read below the article, reveal that all Windows 8 devices that will be sold during the holidays should be capable of running Windows 10 just fine. As we mentioned earlier today, Windows 10 will come with system requirements similar to those on Windows 8, so all systems will be able to cope with the new OS version just fine. Last but not least, the documents emphasize that only experienced users should install Windows 10 preview, as it is still an unfinished product that could come with bugs and issues.

“Tech Preview is designed for PC experts who are comfortable downloading unfished software, preferably on a secondary PC. This is not a developer preview designed for app compatibility testing. While we do expect many developers to download the Preview, we fully expect them to run into compatibility bugs at this early stage,” the documents read. Microsoft itself warned that the preview should only be installed by advanced users, but there’s no doubt that millions of customers from all over the world will give it a try.

Windows 10 Partner Documents:Q: When will the next version of Windows be made generally available?
We look forward to the next version of Windows being generally available over the summer of 2015.
Q: Will Windows 10 be available for free to existing customers?
Microsoft has not shared any information about pricing at this time.
Q: If I buy a Windows device this holiday season, will it be upgradable?
It’s our intention that the vast majority of PCs and tablets bought this holiday will work great on Windows 10.
Q: Should I download the Tech Preview?
Tech Preview is designed for PC experts who are comfortable downloading unfished software, preferably on a secondary PC. This is not a developer preview designed for app compatibility testing. While we do expect many developers to download the Preview, we fully expect them to run into compatibility bugs at this early stage.
Q: What are the system requirements for the Windows 10 Technical Preview?
If you want to test the Windows 10 Technical Preview on your PC, here’s what it takes:
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
A Microsoft account and Internet access
The Windows 10 Technical Preview can be installed on PCs meeting system requirements running Windows 7 or newer
Q: Can I install the Windows 10 Tech Preview on a small form factor Windows tablet or a Windows Phone?
The Technical Preview is designed specifically for x86 based systems and is optimized for non-touch, mouse and keyboard driven systems. Windows on ARM-based processors continues to be an important element of our strategy for phones and tablets, and we’ll have more to share on the Windows experience for mobile devices at a later date.
Q: Do you think the next version of Windows will have a better adoption rate than Windows 8?
We’re pleased with the adoption of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. According to Microsoft, Windows 8 has surpassed 200 million licenses sold, and there are more than 6,600 Windows 8/8.1 certified products available to customers.

Windows 10 comes with lots of new options, including multiple desktops
