The announcement was made by Ramon Planet, the product manager for Microsoft Spain. While we have seen Microsoft releasing preview build of Windows 10 most of the time at 6 a.m. Eastern Time, it’s not surprising for the company to release a new a new product at midnight. Windows 8 went on sales at midnight on October, 2012, and Xbox One also went on sale at 12 a.m. on November, 2013. The news also confirms that many Windows Insiders and people who have reserved their free copy of Windows 10 will start upgrading at 1 a.m. in their respecting countries. In the United States, the upgrade will be available a little sooner depending on the time zone you live in. Windows 10 will be available for download at 12 a.m. Easter Time/ 9 p.m. Pacific Time. If you’re a Windows Insider, you probably will be having a busy night upgrading. Those who reserved their copy of Windows 10 through the “Get Windows 10” app, Microsoft will be pushing the upgrade gradually, so it will take some time, even weeks, until they see the upgrade ready to install. With many people upgrading at once, there is no doubt that download of Windows 10 will start clogging the internet pipes after midnight and content delivery networks (CDNs). However, it seems that Microsoft is not taking any risks as a new blog post form Stream media unveils that the software maker has reserved 40Tb/s of capacity from all the third-party CDNs combined. “To put that number in perspective, some of Apple’s recent largest live events on the web have peaked at 8Tb/s. Windows 10 is expected to be five times that and will easily be the largest day/week of traffic ever on the Internet. QoS problems are to be expected, especially since all of the CDNs will be rate limiting their delivery of the 3GB download and many ISPs will max out interconnection capacity in certain cities.” Source via Windows Central (link 1), (link 2) All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
