Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 will be available as a free download from 29 July to anyone with a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machine. The free download will be on offer for one year.

Reports emerged over the weekend suggesting that this would be the launch date for the OS, and Microsoft has now confirmed this in a blog post, written by Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s vice president of operating systems.

“On 29 July you can get Windows 10 for PCs and tablets by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer, or on a new Windows 10 PC from your favourite retailer,” he said.

“If you purchase a new Windows 8.1 device between now and then, the Windows 10 upgrade will be available to you and many retail stores will upgrade your new device for you.”

Myerson also touted the return of the start button as a key feature of Windows 10 as well as several security upgrades.

“Familiar, yet better than ever, Windows 10 brings back the Start menu you know and love. Windows 10 is faster than ever before, with quick startup and resume,” he said.
