Microsoft gave more details on the rollout of Windows 10 in a blog post from Terry Myerson today. The short version? Not everybody will get it on July 29. OEM partners get it “soon” to start imaging for new devices. “Soon after” retailers will get it for customer support. July 29 Windows Insiders get it. THEN people who “reserved” an update will get it in waves “scaling up after July 29.” If you reserved it Microsoft will push a notification when you’re ready or will provide details if your system has issues that might prevent the upgrade. Businesess will get it on July 29 and Volume License customers will get it August 1. See? easy.
