As the world gets ready for Windows 10, Microsoft India to host a launch event in New Delhi

Windows 10 is just around the corner, and Microsoft would be hosting fan events across many countries to celebrate the launch of their milestone release. And of course, the company is all set for a mega celebration in India as well.

The invite-only launch event would happen at Pragati Maidan, an exhibition area in New Delhi – an unusual choice for Microsoft events - although it implies a grander scale of the event, so we aren't complaining. The event invite is titled 'Do Great Things' carrying the 'I Do' messaging of the Windows 10 promotions we've seen.

I'll be there at the event and will bring you all the updates from the ground, and key launch announcements. So, the answer to 'Wen in India' is 4 PM on July 29th. Sorry, I had to make this joke.

  • Guys, this is off toipic. But someone help me understand the free upgrade of Windows 10.   I'll get free upgrade over Windows update, but if i want to clean install my PC later, how do i get Windows 10 again??
  • yes!   check here: https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co... "Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading? Yes. Once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer, you will be able to reinstall, including a clean install, on the same device. You won’t need to purchase Windows 10 or go back to your prior version of Windows and upgrade again. You’ll also be able to create your own installation media like a USB drive or DVD, and use that to upgrade your device or reinstall after you’ve upgraded."
