Remember when we were waiting for Windows 9 last year just because Windows 8 doesn't really fit well with us? Rumors here and there, and after awhile Microsoft decided there will be no Windows 9. :/
Next version of Windows
Worry not, the next version is still coming! It's just that Microsoft decided not to use Windows 9 as the name of the next version of Windows (Perhaps because 7 8[ate] 9). Instead, it went for a surprising Windows 10. This is still surprising, no? It is also said to be a free upgrade for Windows 7 & 8 users!
Windows 10's Features
There are handful of new features that will be tucked in this new OS. These include:
1. Cortana - Microsoft's helpful digital assistant
2. Spartan - New, clean-looking and lightweight browser (also claimed to be having the most advanced features ever!)
3. Improving PC Games with Xbox
4. Hybrid Start Menu (which looks like the old start menu you see on Windows 7, which also features the 8.1 Start screen! Which means no more start screen? Good news to me!)
5. Snap Assist - helps you snap windows
6. 21st Century Command Prompt
7. Continum - one of the coolest features!
8. Modern/Univeral apps now float on desktop!
Windows 10 Review
If you want to have a better look on how Windows 10 look like, and how well it went as of now, TechRadar has made a review on it
Windows 10 Release Date
So the bigger question here, when can we get our hands on it?
On January 21, Microsoft has made a big reveal to public. However, no particular date for when the final release is out. But Microsoft promised that it will start shipping Windows 10 to consumers in late 2015. I know some of you can't wait to try it out, especially for those geeks out there. Microsoft has released Windows 10 Technical Preview. What are you waiting for? Download and give it a try! (if you don't know what is an .iso file is, it is best for you to wait for the final release and let Windows do the upgrade)
So there you have it, Windows 10 instead of 9. What do you think of the next version of Windows? Yeay? Nay? Don't be shy, drop your comments below!
