Windows 10: A Summary

After the hasty launch of Windows 8.1, Microsoft developers have been in the labs working on a successor, namely Windows 10. Before we delve into the world of Windows 10, let’s take a little trip down memory lane and take note of a particular trend:

Office 2003 downwards   File option was there (For office users, you get what I mean)

Office 2007: File option was removed (Which was a pain in the behind!)

Office 2010: File was brought back

 

Windows 7: Start button was visible

Windows 8: Start button was removed

Windows 8.1: Start button was brought back.

Windows 8 and 8.1: Metro style start menu was introduced.

Now from the above, you will see that when Microsoft removes a particular option in any of their softwares and users complain, they don’t say: meh, they’ll adjust to the change; instead they bring back that feature that their users are craving for. Now in Windows 10, they do something completely different: they combine the metro style of Win 8 and 8.1 with the classic style of 7; in so doing they not only give the users what they want, they also put in a little bit of change (thus giving the users the opportunity to take in the change with a pinch of salt.)

Now taking a look at the main features of Windows 10:

  • Metro meets classic
Start-menu-yellow

  • Cortana (Microsoft’s virtual assistant)

One thing I noticed though is the fact that Microsoft is optimizing their softwares for touch-enabled devices (even from windows 8).

So in subsequent posts, I’ll give a detailed tutorial on how to get Windows 10 for your PC. For now just decide if you’re ready for the change.
