If someone had said in 1995 to Bill Gates to give his opperative system for free, probably he could have laughed to die. Twenty years later, a lot of things have changed. Microsoft SO still runs in almost every personal computer in the world but personal computers are no more the only connection with informatics; smartphones are more and more the tool for people to connect to Internet out of the productivity area (where desktop computers and laptops have still a great advantage). With this movement, Microsoft is trying to reach a wide market to show the operative systems which is in their smartphones and tablets; they want to show how they can be the best ones for your computer in your workplace and for your smartphone in home.
On Monday, Microsoft Corp. announced that Windows 10 will be available July 29 in 190 countries. Windows 10 will help people be more productive and have more fun, with a personal and natural experience that works across all their devices. Familiar, yet better than ever, Windows 10 will deliver ongoing feature innovations and security updates. Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade to people using Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, enabling hundreds of millions of people around the world to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.
“Windows 10 is a new generation of Windows designed to empower you to do great things,” said Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Microsoft. “Windows 10 starts to deliver on our vision of more personal computing, defined by trust in how we protect and respect your personal information, mobility of the experience across your devices, and natural interactions with your Windows devices, including speech, touch, ink and holograms.”
Windows 10 offers a familiar and consistent experience across devices. Continuum enables devices to transform, enabling elegant transitions of a tablet into a PC, and back — and for a Windows phone to become like a PC. Xbox on Windows 10 brings the expansive Xbox Live gaming network to both Windows 10 PCs and tablets. People can communicate with their friends on Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One while playing any PC game and share content using Game DVR. People can also stream games directly from their Xbox One console to a Windows 10 tablet or PC in their homes. Games developed for DirectX 12 in Windows 10 will see improvements in speed, efficiency and graphics capability.
