Microsoft has not yet provided a confirmed release date for the consumer version of Windows 10 but today it finally confirmed all Windows 10 editions that will be released for customers this summer. This is nothing new, the company always releases multiple editions of its operating system that are geared towards home users, professionals, business users and others.
First up is Windows 10 Home which is aimed at the conventional consumers, people like you and me. Most OEM devices and PCs will ship with this edition of Windows 10. It does include all of the crucial features of the new OS such as Windows Hello face recognition, the new Microsoft Edge web browser, native universal apps and more.
