Last week we took a look at the latest Microsoft Windows rumors and we saw how some were saying that Windows won’t be called Windows anymore. Now, Microsoft has released their new operating system and we can see that the voices were just half right. The new operating system from Microsoft isn’t called Windows 9, as it was expected, after Windows 8, but it is called Microsoft Windows 10.
Microsoft Windows 10 – Why the Change?
The first thing that came to people’s mind when they heard Microsoft’s new name for their operating system, Microsoft Windows 10, was Where’s Windows 9? Microsoft just skipped a number, without any concrete reason. It’s their product and they’re free to do with it as they please, but you can’t just throw numbers around willy-nilly, can you?
Some are saying that they’ve done this in an attempt to distance themselves as much as possible from Windows 8, which was Microsoft’s biggest flop in history. So many people hate Windows 8, that Microsoft thought they shouldn’t put a number next to their OS that is close to the number 8. Or maybe they’re counting the Microsoft Windows 8.1 and 9.
What Does Microsoft Windows 10 Bring?
Well, Microsoft Windows 10 is an operating system that’s designed to run across all device form factors. This means that you can have Microsoft Windows 10 on your tablet and even smartphone.
They put back the start menu and if you listen carefully, you can actually hear the world whisper Thank God! You’ve also got better keyboard and mouse integration and a feature that is called virtual desktops.
The virtual desktops feature (this is not the official Microsoft name, but this feature doesn’t have a name, so we’re going with it) is exactly what it sounds like: a feature that allows you to open a new desktop and jump between more than one desktops.
There is still a lot Microsoft hasn’t revealed about the new Microsoft Windows 8, but if you follow us, we’ll make sure to give you the latest news, as soon as Microsoft releases it.
