All we know about…Windows 10

What does Windows 10, and Cortana have in common? A hotter Siri perhaps?

 

Ok, let’s start from the beginning

All we know about Windows 10…

It’s not surprise that Windows 8 was a bit of a dud, and a obvious statement that Microsoft was nervous about Apple’s seamless interface/touch screen ability. Plus, no Start button? What were you thinking? Well, they’ve got the ball rolling again with more insight into the world that is Windows 10.

They keep pushing the key term “Personal computing” over and over. Leading me to think that the OS will cross a huge number of devices, and they mentioned Xbox Live is involved. The big announcement to me was the fact that you can get Windows 10 as a free upgrade in the first year of it’s  release for all customers using Windows 7, 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1. Microsoft knows that no one still has Windows 8, similar to Windows Vista, or Windows ME, but I digress.  Aside from just being a one-time upgrade, once the device is upgraded, it will keep current for the supported lifetime of the device, for FREE!

There’s a new browser on the way code-named “Project-Spartan” built for Windows 10, and get this, a personal assistant comes with the new OS as well, named “Cortana”, sound familiar? You can communicate to Cortana through either talking or typing. And last but not least, HoloLens, the first holographic computing platform, complete with a set of API’s that enable developers to create holographic experiences in the real world. 3-D holograms people!
