Microsoft has said that its upcoming release of Windows 10 will not be for more than a year, and that it will be rolling out Windows 10 in phases, but the company will still be selling its desktop operating system to consumers.
Microsoft’s statement was made during its quarterly earnings call on Thursday, when CEO Satya Nadella talked about the company’s future plans.
Microsoft said that it expects to launch the Windows 10 version of its Office suite this summer.
While that is good news for those who already own Windows 7, it is a bit of a disappointment for users who are looking for the latest version of Office.
Microsoft said that Office 10 will be available in the second half of 2019, with the final version of the program hitting Windows 10 on May 1, 2020.
The company also said that “Office for Business” will be launching in early 2020, and Office 2019 will follow later in the year.
Microsoft also announced that it has been working with Dell to deliver the Dell XPS 12 and XPS 13 to customers, which are designed to provide faster productivity.
The new Windows 10 release has already been announced, and the company said that Windows 10 for Business will arrive in Q2 2019, the first full year of availability for Windows 10.
Microsoft is also planning to launch an app store in the coming weeks, called Windows Insider, to allow Windows 10 users to try out new features and provide feedback.
