Many of us expected that Microsoft would come up with Windows 9 after the Windows 8, but it decided to jump straight to Windows 10.

There have been many leaks leading up to Microsoft’s revelation about its next version of Windows. Many who are keen enough are aware of this.

The next version of Microsoft’s operating system is “Windows 10” and not “Windows 9” as you might have expected.

But why did Microsoft settle on this name? They say it is going to be the last major version of Windows and they wanted to signify it will be a big and cross-platform release.

Windows 10 will run on Windows Phones, PCs, tablets and even Xbox at some point in the future.

Its user interface will be tailored for each type of device, and with it Windows will be consolidating its various app stores.

Windows 10 also marks the return of the Start Menu, which had been removed from Windows 8. In addition to offering a list of the user’s favorite applications, the menu will bring up resizable tiles – similar to those featured in Windows 8’s touch-centric interface on PCs and tablets.

These provide a quick view of notifications from relevant applications, such as details of Facebook messages, new emails, and weather forecast updates.

Microsoft said the facility was intended to make the software seem familiar to both users of Windows 8 and Windows 7.

“It’s extremely important for Microsoft to get Windows 10 right,” said David Johnson, who watches Microsoft for the consultancy Forrester.

“Windows 8 is only being offered to employees by about one in five organizations right now. Windows 7 is still the de facto standard for enterprise in the desktop environment.

“For Microsoft to continue to be able to get the best and latest technology in the hands of the enterprise workforce all over the world, it has to have a vehicle to do that – and Windows 10 is its best shot.”

Mr. Johnson said the reintroduction of the Start Menu should help Windows 10 fare better.

“It is critically important,” he said.
“The Start Menu is perhaps the most important thing that will make the desktop experience familiar to business users, and will help reduce resistance to its installation.”
