Positioning Windows as a Service, Microsoft released Windows 10 which will be available today as a free upgrade or with new PCs and tablets across 190 countries. Windows 10 includes innovations such as Cortana, an Xbox app and Microsoft Edge for a familiar, yet more personal and productive experience. It offers universal experience that will become available on the broadest range of devices, including PCs, tablets, phones, Raspberry Pi, Xbox One, HoloLens and more — with more than 2,000 devices or configurations already in testing.
“One of the critical changes the company has made is to position Windows as a platform and bring to life Windows-as-a-service. To make this change real, the company has put in place is the Windows Insider Program to help gain feedback from millions of actual consumers and enterprises while the product is still in beta stage. This should help reduce bugs and hence the need for multiple patches post release. Specifically for consumers, the company has a significant focus on the UI gestures and multi-tasking in Windows 10. This is particularly helpful in a cramped screen real estate and will help Microsoft gain momentum in the multi-screen play, says Sanchit Vir Gogia Chief Analyst & Group CEO, Greyhound Research.
Cortana, the personal digital assistant, makes it easy to find the right information at the right time. “More specifically, Cortana can well be expected to become a critical part for consumers – albeit not the first in its class, Microsoft’s approach is unique to how it can be used in the broader Windows environment,” said Gogia.
