Microsoft Launches its Windows 10 Operating System

Microsoft has launched its Windows 10 operating system. Microsoft plans to come out with a Smartphone for Windows 10 operating system besides handsets across price segments on the new platform in 2015. The new OS gives a window into the future as well, with its ability to connect to Internet of Things (IoT), offering it a much t needed turn around and power to compete with the likes of Apple. The Windows 10 OS will also be Microsoft's last 'Windows' operating system, as future versions will be upgrades of the Windows 10 but will be named differently. But it sees the free upgrade to Windows 10 for existing users of Windows 7 and 8.1, as an opportunity to drive adoption of its products across newer segments, such as television as well. Apps for Windows 8 were designed to take up the full screen, just like tablets. Although the user could split the screen, apps could be placed only side by side, not top to bottom, as probably want when having email and streaming video open at once. Windows 10 restores resizing for all apps, touch or not. With Windows 8, the corner start button in desktop mode got to a full-screen, graphical start page in tablet mode. With Windows 10, the start button functions the way it did with Windows 7 and earlier. Internet Explorer is gone, replaced by Edge. The user gets some functional improvements, such as a virtual marker to draw arrows or circle an entry on a Web page to share over email and other means. As Microsoft shifts its focus to online services, it has been steering users to store files on its OneDrive online storage service As with Dropbox and Google Drive, OneDrive typically keeps copies of all files on computer. Windows 10 restores the approach of keeping copies of every thing, unless limit that due to low storage.
