New leaks about Windows 10 reveal news on the upcoming upgrade that could be available for sale starting with July 29. The costs were also revealed but the pieces of information are still unconfirmed by Microsoft officials.
An OEM copy of Windows 10 Home will come for no less than $109 while and OEM copy of Windows 10 Professional will cost $149. It seems that substantial differences between Home and Professional editions of Windows 10 are not a case of quality or performance differentiator, apart from little details, they both come with the same features.
Microsoft has already published system requirements for Windows 10 and for those who can already run Windows 8.1 on their PC’s, the new version of Windows can only come as a natural upgrade. Windows will automatically have our system checked to make sure it can install the preview.
However, if your system is not upgraded with the Windows 8 version, you must have certain specs to your PC to be able to upgrade your system. In terms of processor capacity, you will need to have 1 GHz running or even faster. Onward, in terms of RAM memory, you will need at least 1GB for 32-bit or 2GB for the 64-bit version. Your free hard disk space must be greater than 16GB for 32-bit or 20GB for 64-bit.
Last but not least, the graphics card should be advanced to Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver along with a Microsoft account and Internet access.
However, the Windows 10 description attached by Newegg, the retailer that will sell the latest Windows version, reveals no major surprises. Highlights are laid upon the feedback used from millions of people, taken into account when designing this particular version of Microsoft’s operating system. Millions of people opinionated on how Microsoft should change his OS strategy, thus Windows 10 will arrive with Cortana along with a new Web Browser (edge) that will be capable of streaming games from the Xbox one via the Xbox app.
The most important aspect of this equation is the change in the way updates are delivered, making it easier for most and restricting freedom of choice for some of us. This is a consequence of market flexibility, more concentrated on selling devices rather than operating systems that take a secondary place in consumer preferences. As professionals reveal, Windows 10 will be more like OS X than people come to realize, and this won’t come as a delightful detail for most of us.
