Be Patient for the Windows 10 Upgrade Roll Out
Be Patient for the Windows 10 Upgrade Roll Out: Waiting for the Windows 10? Well, you would have to be a bit more tolerant, as even though Microsoft, announced last month that the Windows 10 would be released on July 29, Microsoft has made it clear yesterday that not everyone would be able to switch to windows 10 from their windows 7 or windows 8 PC on the same day. This is because; Microsoft has planned to roll out the upgrades in waves, slowly.
Terry Myerson, Windows Chief shared that the very first people to use the Windows 10 upgrade would be the group of five million people, known as “Window Insiders” , who were busy testing the OS’s preview version.
After, the group of insiders is done; people who have reserved copies of the Windows 10 would start getting notifications by Microsoft to perform the update, scaling further up slowly after July 29.
The slow roll out is planned by Microsoft due to the high rising demand of Windows 10, as Microsoft is expecting 1 billion PCs to run it in the coming 2-3 years. Also, the millions of different PCs currently running Windows 7 and 8 have to be tested by Microsoft for their compatibility with the Windows 10, adding to its slow roll out. Compared to Apple updates that are rolled out in a single day, the slow speed of Microsoft is due to the large number of Windows PCs.
Myerson also added that most of the PCs running windows 7 and 8 would be completely compatible with the Windows 10; however the company is still in the testing process.
Microsoft also announced that the schools and business would be able to upgrade the systems to Windows 10 from August 1.
