Windows 10 News & Rumors

Heralded as a beautiful showing by the development team, Windows 10 Tech Preview quickly demonstrates more of what Windows users love about Microsoft’s flagship product. At present we are reviewing the OS preview and have written a few articles prior to this one regarding implementations of drivers, you may find those in our tech articles section here.

So far what we have seen and heard about Windows 10, promises the widely anticipated Cortana, a voice recognition software that operates along some familiar lines and will likely see implementation across all Windows 10 devices.

Pricing has been rumored to be free for existing users of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and possibly the testing branch. While this remains unconfirmed we can anticipate a very large desktop marketshare for Microsoft if these rumors are true.

The new Spartan internet browser promises to be a default browser that more closely resembles what users of Chrome and Firefox have shown to be their preferences. The new browser will be more lightweight and makes use of the Chakra java script engine and Trident rendering as opposed to Webkit.

In addition to changing the direction of their browser this opens the doors for more developers as time goes by. Coupled with the release of Microsoft Visual Studio Community Edition the time for new app developers to start looking at what is being offered is now.

All told the rumors around pricing seem to depend largely on the business model that depends on the apps market but for a limited time there will be a mass exodus to the new OS for many Windows users.

This coupled with the exciting projects like Titanfall at Microsoft Azure, opens the door for many of us Linux users as well, partly due to the collaborative efforts taking place between open source developers who see the benefits of both operating systems.

2015 may be the beginning of the end of petty arguments about which system is better, (as each system will undoubtably be better than the other at some things) and with any luck the collaborative endeavors of forward thinking developers will spawn new platforms for the benefit of all.

The January build is now on the lips and blogs of testers as they await these newest features…

So why is a Linux user so excited about a Microsoft Product? I’m learning to enjoy the advantages of every platform, and with Windows 10 it’s getting much easier to do so.

Thanks for reading this!
