Microsoft announces Windows 10; skips Windows 9


Microsoft has unveiled the next version of its flagship operating system – Windows 10. The official name of Windows 10 is ‘Threshold’. We’re not talking about one UI to rule them all – we’re talking about one product family, with a tailored experience for each device”, Microsoft said in a blog post. Microsoft executive Terry Myerson said Windows 10 will be “a whole new generation”.


The new Windows brings back the Start Menu which was not found in Windows 8. The new Start Menu also allows its users with a customisable space for their favourite apps and Live Tiles. Now, users can open apps from the Windows Store in the same format that desktop apps do and can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing for maximize, minimize, and close with a click. Users can create multiple desktops and can switch easily between them and resume from the point where they have left.

Customers can download the Technical Previews of Windows 10 starting October 1, 2014.
