windows_10_vrdesktopWe know that Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 later this year although when exactly remains to be seen. In fact last we heard it was speculated that it might be released mid-year and if you’re hoping for that to be true (versus other rumors for a Fall launch), you’re in luck. Microsoft has recently confirmed on its blog that Windows 10 will be launched in the summer.

Unfortunately no specific dates are mentioned so we guess we’ll just have to keep an eye out for its release. The software will see a release in 190 countries and will also be translated for 111 different languages, so there’s a very good chance that you should be able to expect the release of Windows 10 in your country.

So far from what we can tell and see from the previews, Microsoft’s Windows 10 is shaping up to be a rather decent operating system, with learning from the mistakes they made with Windows 8. There will be a ton of new features, of course, one of which will be the ability to recognize faces, irises, and fingerprints as a means to log into the system.

Microsoft’s voice recognition software Cortana will also be part of the operating system and last we heard, Microsoft was working on a way to train Cortana to recognize your voice, thus making it more effective for users with thick accents. We’ll be looking out for a more specific date for Windows 10’s release, so be sure to check back with us in the future for more details!
