Windows 10 will be a universal platform
New features of the Windows 10 have been unveiled and the way things look it will be the best operating system that Microsoft has come up with till now. First of all it will be a universal platform, having the same features and capabilities on PCs and mobile devices.
Some of the new features released are the new browser nick-named “Project Spartant” and the new personal assistant software called Cortana, which will also be available on the mobile platform. Also, it is said that the new OS will be oriented towards gaming and holographic computing.
One of the best things about Windows 10 as announced by Terry Myerson, executive VP of Microsoft’s OS Group, is that this version of Windows will not be offered as a software but as a service. This will make things a lot easier for developers.
Things are looking good for the common user as well seeing that now you can have the same OS on your PC, Xbox and mobile device. Also, the mobile version will come with embedded Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps which will work exactly as the ones on PC.
Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, stated that they are not looking towards the mobility of just one device but the mobility of experience. Nadella is the man that put Microsoft on the mobile path and seems to be doing a great job of it. Windows 10 will be available to all users of the 7 and 8/8.1 versions as a free upgrade for one year after its launch.
