Microsoft unveils official Windows 10 Launch site

The buzz is increasing as Microsoft publishes their official Windows Launch portal where they are sharing a big collection of information relating to the Windows 10 launch which begins on 29 July 2015.

If you head over to you will see a social media tracking area with embedded tweets as users around the world upgrade to Windows 10 and use the hashtag #UpgradeYourWorld to talk about it.

Next Microsoft shares information about their partnerships with multiple organizations that are reaching out to the community to assist users with their Windows 10 upgrade. This effort is critical to Microsoft's goal of seeing Windows 10 installed on one billion devices in the next 2-3 years.

Over the last nine days Microsoft has been involved in their own countdown to Windows 10 with their 10 Reasons to Upgrade to Windows 10 videos. Each day a new video has been released highlighting a Windows 10 feature and they are all at the launch portal in one place.
