Microsoft skips Windows 9, announces Windows 10!

Microsoft is having a small event today where only few people were invited, but the happenings are far from small – the company has just announced the next version of their OS – Windows 10!


Microsoft says calling it Windows 9 would be wrong, as it will try to connect the software across several platforms, not only update the desktop. Calling it Windows One would be not appropriate as well as they’ve done it before, so they’re calling it Windows 10 for some reason, actually skipping version 9.

Naming their newest OS Windows 10 could imply reaching a milestone –  a renewed focus on the cloud and creating a cohesive experience across several devices through a one app store.

Windows 10

“One [Ring] to rule them all… and in the darkness bind them.”

Basically, Windows 10 is Windows 8 embedded into the familiarity of Windows 7. For example, the Start menu is finally back again on the corner of your desktop, but with live tiles and new UI elements. This doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten the Start screen however, as it is still there for touch-enabled devices.

Windows will also have Enterprise as expected, and believe it or not, Windows 10 will be the next version of Windows Phone as well.

Microsoft Windows 10 will be available mid-2015 after the build conference. With that said, it’s safe to say there are still a lot of changes on the way before everything is final. For now, all that we can do is wait.

    “Windows 10 will deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time,” said Microsoft’s Terry Myerson. “Windows 10 will run on the broadest types of devices ever.” You can expect a unique user interface depending on what you’re running Windows on; images shown at the event line up with leaks that have surfaced in recent weeks. It’s basically a combination of Windows 7 and 8 that borrows design elements from each of Microsoft’s two most recent operating systems. http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/30/6868695/microsoft-windows-10-announced-official

      UI-wise,yes. Pero dahil iisa na lang ang tawag sa lahat ng OSes na gagamitin sa lahat ng devices,mas magiging unified at compatible lahat ng ms devices. not sure though Hahaha

      @jokab, if you are just an end-user, that’s gonna be your initial reaction, but if you are a developer, this means a lot.

    Am I correct in my understanding that this latest announcement ditched “Windows Phone” for “Windows 10” as the name of their upcoming phone os?
