Less than two weeks ago Microsoft made available to the public the Technical Preview of the next operating system, Windows 10, and they’ve already announced they have surpassed the one million users who are testing it. Staggering numbers if we’re talking about an OS’s draft version. According to Microsoft, Windows 9 won’t be an upgrade for Windows 8.1, but it’ll be a radical improvement on it.
Microsoft has many things in mind for Windows 10, and the most prominent one’s that they want it to be a unified OS for PCs, notebooks, tablets, consoles (Xbox One), etc. From what we’ve seen, we could joke saying that Microsoft’s created with Windows October 1 an OS “to rule them all“, and people’s reactions are quite positive thereon. Microsoft doesn’t want to repeat the mistakes it made with Windows 8, where the user interface was optimized for touch screens and completely ignored normal screens or typical users using keyboard and mouse; another major improvement in Windows 10 is that the operating system itself will be able to detect what kind of device we’re running it in to adjust the interface consequently.
Windows 10 will also be a well received OS in the business world since, according to the software giant, it’ll be even more powerful than Windows 7 and will feature several tools for IT professionals to manage their assets easily and efficiently.
In any case, good numbers for Microsoft when its Windows 10 Technical Preview’s not even two weeks old. And we wish them good luck, just to see if they can at last make an operating system that we all like and really meets our needs.
