Amidst all of the confusion at the release of Windows 10, it seems not everyone will be getting it by the end of this month.
An announcement from Microsoft earlier confirmed that its next operating system, Windows 10, would be available to customers on July 29 for free. The confusion started on which consumers are eligible for the free upgrade, though even with the July 29 release date, it seems not everyone will be getting it on that day.
In Microsoft’s blog post, it detailed the July 29 will be the rollout date for the operating system – which confirms that the company is planning to release the operating system in stages. “Each day of the roll-out, we will listen, learn and update the experience for all Windows 10 users,” the company said.
The company also did not note which users will be getting Windows 10 first, though sources claim that users who are members of Microsoft’s Windows Insider beta testing program might get it first. The reason for the gradual rollout is for Microsoft to determine faults and make immediate bug fixes when needed – especially that rollout of Windows 8 was well, a disaster.

Windows 10 is the next big operating system from Microsoft – which fixes the flaws from Windows 8.1 along with a rebranding of its internet browser. Microsoft Windows 10 will be a free upgrade on the first year for Windows 7 and 8//8.1 customers.
