Windows 10 Release Date & Preview: OS Leaked; DVD & USB Packaging Released Online

Finally, after months of intensifying excitement, Microsoft is launching their newest Windows 10 OS to the world. And if that isn’t enough, the official packaging of the software leaked online.

Fans already marked their calendars on July 29 as the company announced on their website the details of the much awaited release.

“Windows 10 was built to empower people to do great things. We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of Windows 10 with our fans. We’ll mark the launch of Windows 10 by celebrating the people and organizations that upgrade the world every day — and by helping them do more in their communities.” Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate VP of Windows and Devices Marketing at Microsoft, explained.

While the release is still a few days away, reports indicate that Microsoft’s new retail packaging for Windows 10 has leaked online. Originally from the German site WinFuture, the packages for the Box edition and the USB edition was posted on Twitter by the Microsoft Insider.

Microsoft has not confirmed or denied the reports of the software packaging.

According to Tech times, Microsoft has improved their newest OS significantly compared to its predecessor, the Windows 8. They are “steering clear of all the mistakes with the last version of their OS”. The packaging also seems to support this idea. The box packaging is going for simple design that readily shows how the Windows 10 interface looks like.

Unlike the Windows 8’s design that shows daisies at the center, the Windows 10 desktop design draws its attention on its new light-powered wallpaper, The Verge noted.

Microsoft fans who pre-ordered Windows 10 can receive the OS on July 29 via online update. Those who prefer to get boxed copies of the system will have to wait a few more days until the DVD version are made available for purchase.
