    On an investor conference call, the AMD CEO said Windows 10 will launch at the end of July. Hard to know whether that's a best guess or insider information.

    Personally, I thought even end of September (still technically summer) would be a stretch for having this done in time. July would be insane.

    It's insane - but it is probably the date. As I've said, wait for 10.1...

    AMD’s CEO Lisa Su comment wasn't ambiguous. She said, "What we also are factoring in is, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching the impact of that on the back-to-school season."

    It all depends, surely, on your definition of the word "launch". Actual availability? Start of the Ad campaign - get your pre-orders in now...?

    If it does mean actual availability, then whatever will be made available at the end of July will not, on all the current evidence, be a polished product.

    You make a good point. Companies often overuse the word "launch". They'll announce "We just launched our new product, which will be available in a few months." It bugs because if someone told me they'd launched their new boat, then told me it was still in pieced on a dock, I'd tell them they were lying to me.

    Rah rah, I'll be waiting patiently on the sidelines with 8.1 to see the massacre. Hopefully MS learns its lesson by 10.1, their company seems to be a .1 kind of company these days.

    The redesign of the settings toggles makes me irrationally happy. :)

    With you on that! It's not the eye-sore the first one was. This must have been their plan all along:
    1. Make hideously ugly interface elements.
    2. Destroy touch interface.
    3. Make nicer looking interface elements, bringing such relief that we forget about everything else.

    Now, those desktop icons - I'm really hoping they were part of the same plan : )

    Windows 10 the last Windows?
    It will now be a service?

    If service means a yearly subscription, then 8.1 will be the last Windows for this user (still treating us like a bunch of drug addicts)

    For now all it means is that it will be continuously updated instead of coming in large releases every few years.
