Why Microsoft Names Its New OS to Windows 10?

Did you know that there are already over 1.5 billion people around the globe using Windows Operating System?

Amazingly, Microsoft announced its new Windows Windows 10 (probably you will start to ask how and why it is not Windows 9 sort of? ) that built from  mobile-first, cloud-first world. It sure does to make people be more productive. I just hope so.

Microsoft also stated that its Windows 10 will represent the first step of a whole new generation of Windows. Additionally, this new OS will run across set of devices. 

According to TNW, Terry Myerson, the Microsoft's Executive VP of Operating System, had cleared up that Windows 9 is not suitably right to be the next version. Why is it that so?

Myerson did not give exact reason, however, he offered a new name Windows 10 after he trolled everyone in the Windows event in San Francisco by saying it would be Windows 1. He then said that this new version shall be "One Product Family. One Platform. One Store".

Before giving the new name, Myerson trolled everyone by saying it would be called Windows One. Since Windows 1 has already been released though, the company chose to go with Windows 10. He did promise, however, that Windows 10 would work across all types of devices (computers, tablets, phones, and of course the Internet of Things): “One product family. One platform. One store.”

Sneak Peek of the Windows 10 New Features:
  • Start menu
Finally, Start Menu is back after it was removed in Windows 8.0 (but in 8.1, they put it back). What new here is it has with a new customizable space for users' favorite apps and Live Tiles.
  • Almost Everything runs in the same format apps(window)
Desktop apps can be resized, moved, have title bars (max, min, and close)

  • Snap Preview (Quadrant Layout)
Windows will  show other apps and programs running for additional snapping and even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.



  • New task view button
New task-view button on the taskbar for quick switching between open files and quick access to any desktops you create.

  • Multiple desktops (Virtual)
User can create desktops for different purposes and projects and switch between these desktops easily and pick up where you left off on each desktop.
  • Find files faster
Most of the time, users tend to look for a certain file in their system yet it causes more frustration and inconvenience due to slow process of finding files. This new feature will certainly give more efficient and productive. File Explorer now displays your recent files and frequently visited folders making for finding files you’ve worked on is easier.

Overall, I need to upgrade my system in order to test out on whether it is really fast and reliable or not.
