After the confusion over who gets a free upgrade to Windows 10 and who doesn’t, Microsoft has triggered another confusion. This time with the availability date itself. Everyone will not be able to upgrade to Windows 10 on July 29.

- Microsoft suspends Windows 10 Preview Builds for a brief period as it nears official launch

- Windows 10 is out on July 29: Minimum specs needed, features you will lose
According to an official blog post by Terry Myerson, the new operating system will start to roll out Windows 10 to Windows Insiders on July 29. Others will have to wait for their turn as it will be released in a waves.
“We will start notifying reserved systems in waves, slowly scaling up after 29 July. Each day of the rollout, we will listen, learn and update the experience for all Windows 10 users,” according to the post.
There’s an option to reserve the new OS. However, this will not ensure that you get the upgrade on July 29. There is no clarity as to when users can get Windows 10.
So, why is Microsoft doing this? May be to ensure that a clean version without any bugs reach the masses from the start.
