AMD CEO Says Windows 10 Will Launch in July

Everyone knows that Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows 10 will launch in the summer, but AMD’s (NASDAQ: AMD) CEO Lisa Su has confirmed the exact release date during her company’s most recent earnings call.

Su let the exact date slip when she was telling an industry analyst about the company’s plans to build up its PC business throughout the year. AMD is looking to expand this division of its operations, especially in light of its most recent quarterly results.

“With the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we’re watching, sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up,” she said.

Of course these plans are subject to change at Microsoft’s discretion. However, Microsoft seems to be committed to having Windows 10 launch this summer so if it does change it might not be too dramatic.

Typically Microsoft tends to confirm release dates for its operating systems with a 3 month lead time, so an official release date should be upon us soon. However, Microsoft is known for enforcing secrecy surrounding the official release dates of its operating systems so it probably isn’t too happy with AMD for letting this slip.

    Right…”Back to school, new OS” such an oxymoron. The last thing on any production line is entering an entirely new world of the next windows. Including those consumers who are looking for a new laptop, rather not have any issues with any software for school, assignments, etc.

    I honestly don’t think the public is any where near excited for another OS, W7 is doing just fine, and its barely being adopted in every office today. So, lets not call it a back to school, that’s simply a total fail to bring anything like this into an already developed ecosystem.

      I’m excited. I can finally make all the OSes the same at work. Yay no more special group policy/memorizing xp/vista/7/8! Only 10! yay for making my job easier! Migration won’t be fun, but meh. Now if only they could do the same for Windows server.
      EDIT: although I’m sure my users aren’t excited at all.
