Microsoft shares more about its next operating system: Windows 10

Microsoft has shared that its new operating system, Windows 10, will offer better and easier options for developers to build applications for multiple platforms. The new version of Windows operating system will be available by mid 2015, Microsoft announced at an event in San Francisco.

Microsoft added that the initial focus will be on desktop but Windows 10 will have much better interface for touch-enabled devices. Windows 10 will offer virtual desktops, an option to have independent desktops running on the system at the same time.

As hardware for most of the desktop PCs has advanced over the last few years, Microsoft will be able to offer better multitasking abilities for users in its new operating system. Windows 10 preview will be available on Wednesday.

Microsoft will redesign the start menu and internet search option could be added at a prominent place. Windows 10 will also have much better app-display parameters.

Microsoft shared that Windows 10 will be available with advanced options for all the devices, including desktop PCs, smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, embedded systems and Internet of Things devices.
Windows 10 will also focus on CEO Satya Nadella’s ‘mobile-first, cloud first’ strategy.

Terry Myerson, Executive VP of operating systems at Microsoft said, “Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows. Windows 10 unlocks new experiences for customers to work, play and connect. Windows 10 embodies what our customers (both consumers and enterprises) demand and what we will deliver.”

Microsoft has asked announced Windows Insider Program for technology professionals to share their views about what they need from Windows operating system. The company will launch early builds of new features for Windows Insider Program members.
