Microsoft announced this week that they will be launching their new operating system Windows 10 this summer, launching it to the public in 190 different countries.

For those who are currently running their PCs on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and even Windows Phone 8.1 will get a free upgrade to the new Windows 10 operating system for the first year after it has been released.

Here’s what Microsoft’s Terry Myerson said about the news:

Today at the renewed Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, I had the honor of speaking about Windows 10 and the innovation and opportunity it offers our valued partners. China is a global epicenter for innovation and we’re excited to be working with the area’s leading hardware and software companies to develop ground-breaking devices and consumer experiences that will help shape the future of Windows 10.

We continue to make great development progress and shared today that Windows 10 will be available this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages. Windows has always been global with more than 1.5 billion users around the world and here in China hundreds of millions of PCs operate Windows today. That’s why it was particularly fun to show our latest global innovation, Windows Hello, on stage for the first time, and to feature a number of Windows 10 customizations for the China market, such as Cortana in Mandarin.

As of yet Microsoft has yet to provide a specific release date for Windows 10 however, all we know is that it will be coming this summer.
