Microsoft has begun rolling out an update to its Windows 10 operating system, hoping to spark enthusiasm for its virtual- and augmented-reality ambitions.

The Windows 10 update became available Tuesday.

Several of Microsoft's partners—Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo—are simultaneously launching their first "Windows Mixed Reality" headsets Tuesday. Samsung is also releasing one early next month.

Microsoft is also announcing a new generation of laptops in its Surface line. Two versions of the new Surface Book 2—one 13.5 inches and the other 15 inches—will go on sale next month.
