Per a blog post from Tony Prophet on Microsoft’s Blogging Windows, it seems Windows 10 will drop this summer in 110 languages and 190 countries.

No date was announced but his post revealed that there will be multiple editions of the Windows 10 operating system.

  • Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 10 Mobile
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Education

The version you get will depend on the device you have.
