Must read for Microsoft word users. The company has announced that Windows 10 would launch sometime this summer, though it has refrained from giving any exact date.
Sources said, Windows 10 would be a free upgrade for current Windows 7 and 8.1 users, as well as Windows Phone 8.1 customers. The company is yet to announce pricing for people using Windows Vista or earlier versions.
Microsoft has partnered with two Chinese smartphone companies to make Windows 10 handsets as it would be available on PCs and phones. Lenovo said it will start selling Windows 10 phones on China Mobile by mid-year, and fast-growing Xiaomi said some Mi 4 smartphone users would be able to test Windows 10 on their devices.
Windows 10 will be Microsoft’s first major update to its operating system in three years. Notably, Windows 8 wasn’t well received by customers, and most of its updates to Windows 10 reflect that.
The new Windows offers a familiar experience to Windows 7 users who never made the jump to Windows 8, while still bringing some innovations to the PC that tablet and smartphone users have become accustomed to.
Windows 10 brings back the Start Menu, which organizes all of the tiles that were abundant in Windows 8. Windows 10 boots straight to the desktop, and it stays there. Internet Explorer is taking a backseat to a new and improved Web browser.
If you upgrade to Windows 10, you’ll get free Windows upgrades for the life of your PC or phone.
