Oops! AMD accidentally leaks Windows 10 release date

Salvation from the crumminess of Windows 8 is coming soon in July

We hope Microsoft won't be sending its lawyers after AMD because the latter just unintentionally leaked Window 10's release date.

Windows fun in summer

During a conference call, AMD CEO Lisa Su said the following: "What we also are factoring in is, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory buildup".

What does this mean? By June, there'll be plenty of devices being prepped to ship with Windows 10 though the actual shipping won't be happening until August we're guessing. What this also means? There's going to be a slight lull in more exciting Windows devices from this period until July. You'll likely see the usual nominal hardware updates for established models but as to new designs or new lines, expect this year's Computex in Taiwan to be pretty exciting.
