This is the video of the event Microsoft had to announce Windows 10 this morning. It’s a long ass video (like 40 minutes) but it’s actually informative as hell.
First of all they explain why they skipped from 8 to 10 and it’s basically because they see it as sort of a clean break from the way they’ve developed in the past.
As for the OS itself, they basically designed it so if you like the way 7 worked, it’ll work like 7, and if you like the way 8 worked, it’ll work like 8. 8 basically added a touch UI on top of the 7 desktop, in essence having two OSs in one, and what people seemed to hate most was the times when it would somewhat inconsistently switch between them, particularly when using classic desktop apps and new store apps.
What they changed was instead of the either/or setup, it takes the best elements of both and adjusts the UI depending on the type of device, and can even change automatically if you’re using a hybrid device like a surface or convertible laptop.
That’s not even getting into the under the hood stuff. With this release, Windows, Windows RT (the version for ARM processors), Windows Phone, and even the Xbox One OS are all converging into a single unified OS (albeit each with its own customized user experience). In essence, a developer can write a single app that can scale from a phone to a tablet, to any kind of PC, and to a TV using any combo of touch, mouse, and even motion gestures via Kinect. If you don’t think that is the tightest shit ever, I’m not sure we can be friends.
And everything they showed today was just changes to the core of the OS. They haven’t even talked yet about most of the new customer facing features like Cortana and all the new versions of the stock apps and such (including IE which while it already no longer sucks, will get even better. 12 is going to revamp the extension model so paging xkit guy).
Even if you’re not a super ass nerd like me who gets gitty talking about modifications to the command prompt, watch this video because it explains so much about how the developers reached the decisions they did and it’s really fascinating.
Like watch it for real.
And get hyped for this shit cause it’s gonna be a free upgrade from 8.1 and maybe even from 7.
