Remember how we predicted that the new operating system from Microsoft will not be called Windows 9? Well, we were right! It’s not called Windows 9, but Microsoft Windows 10. Microsoft simply skipped a number and the reason behind this decision is, we think, that it want to distance itself from the fiasco that was Windows 8. Read on to find out what new things Microsoft brought to its new operating system.
Microsoft Windows 10 – What Is It Like?
Microsoft didn’t reveal too much about their new operating system, there is still plenty to learn about the new Microsoft Windows 10 and we will, in due time. If you’re wondering when it will be made available for the public, we’re guessing it’s going to be somewhere towards the end of 2015. The technical preview that Microsoft offered was just that, a preview, and the operating system is far from being ready for launch.
The new Microsoft Windows 10 is going to be an operating system that will run across all device form factors, including smartphones. It was confirmed by Microsoft that Windows 10 will be the version of the next Windows Phone, but we don’t know what devices can get the upgrade.
Another thing the new Microsoft Windows 10 is getting (back) is the Start Menu; a feature that was robbed from us by Windows 8. Also, it appears that searching inside the Start Menu, will also perform a web search, if connected to the internet.
Something that the internet is calling virtual desktops (although the name was not confirmed by Microsoft) is also present on the new Microsoft Windows 10. It gives you the ability to open up a new desktop and also switch between desktops. We’re quite exciting by this feature, to be honest.
