So it is official, Microsoft has announced the name of the ever so popular Windows Operating System, Windows 10. At a Press conference in San Francisco, Microsoft had a preview of the new look and feel of the desktop. After getting much pushback of the live tiles, which was introduced in Windows 8 and 8.1, Microsoft has decided to appease the masses by bringing the beloved start button back to Windows 10, while still trying to move the “Unified” Operating system forward. In the new start menu it now offers both the windows 7 layout and the live tiles, so that users have the best of both worlds in just one button.
Another issue that Microsoft wanted to touch base on is the touch portion of the OS. If you have a windows 8 or 8.1 tablet or laptop that is touch screen, you know as well as I do that the responsiveness is a bit “laggy” or “Jittery” when using a pen or fingers. Microsoft has taken the criticism of the issue and is working to create a better touch, keyboard, and mouse integration. They are calling this new approach Continuum. It is supposed to work by automatically switching between modes by detecting how its users interact with the device. As Microsoft admits that it is still a work in progress, and will be an ongoing process up until the release,
So the question remains, as we now know to look forward to the new release. Is the new O.S going to be able to revive Microsoft to its old glory days, or will we have another Windows 8 flop.
