Microsoft has revealed the release of Windows 10, announcing that the upcoming OS will be made available on July 29.
Windows 10 will come as a free upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1, with a new taskbar app to be added prompting owners to "reserve" their upgrade ahead of time. Here's a quick rundown of what the OS is going to offer.
Windows 10 will see Cortana landing on PC, and will be implemented in a large number of applications. Replacing Internet Explorer will be Microsoft Edge, a new browser that will feature an added commeting layer, via typing or inking - or sharing comments, and a reading view for faster reading.
