The much-expected Windows 10 was launched on Wednesday night by Microsoft.
The most thrilling feature is that it will be available as a free upgrade for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 in 190 countries.
The operating system is designed to work on desktops, laptops and smartphones, rivaling on a great scale with Apple and Google Inc. in the mobile domain.
Capital Markets analyst Daniel Ives said that Windows 10 is bound to open up new pathways for the Windows business.
The Windows 10 interface is to be enhanced with search and gaming capabilities, these features generating additional income to the Microsoft Corporation.
Fortunately for some, Windows 10 brings back the start button, whereas Windows 8 had discarded it by introducing its now familiar layout. Thus, this is a satisfactory feature for those unimpressed with Windows 8.
Windows 10 also comes with a new characteristic, Microsoft’s newest browser – ‘Edge.’
On July 29th PC’s and tablets running Windows 10 will undergo sale, whereas the operating system will be made available on other devices (such as smartphones) later this year.
The company is expecting to have 1 billion devices running Windows 10 in 2-3 years.
Windows 10 is important to Microsoft’s future, because it permits users to switch back to their previous operating system, while giving a signal to people to try the brand new style as well.
Even the beta version of Windows 10 seems like a reliable and solid operating system.
It’s worth mentioning that the new pack of Office apps for Windows 10 will be launched this summer.
As a 180 degrees turn, Microsoft 10 will be available for purchase via USB sticks, instead of the classic discs that have defined the company’s image for many years now.
Window 10’s digital assistant Cortana is bound to make everything easier for future users of this operating system.
You can take the time to tell her your interests, and thus, Cortana will be able to adjust your preferences accordingly – for specific news topics, alerts and even the types of restaurants you like.
Another aspect of Windows 10 is that multiple desktops have infiltrated the platform, while you can summon as many virtual desktops as your hardware can handle.
However, if you yearn for Windows 8’s start screen, that wouldn’t be an issue, as Cortana can guide you through the process of selecting Tablet Mode.
Last but not least, the mandatory restarts for updates to be fulfilled can indeed be scheduled.
