Microsoft presents Windows 10 - the next chapter

Windows 10 is the first step to an era of more personal computing. This vision framed our work on Windows 10, where we are moving Windows from its heritage of enabling a single device – the PC – to a world that is more mobile, natural and grounded in trust. We believe your experiences should be mobile – not just your devices. Technology should be out of the way and your apps, services and content should move with you across devices, seamlessly and easily. In our connected and transparent world, we know that people care deeply about privacy – and so do we. That’s why everything we do puts you in control – because you are our customer, not our product. We also believe that interacting with technology should be as natural as interacting with people – using voice, pen, gestures and even gaze for the right interaction, in the right way, at the right time. These concepts led our development and you saw them come to life today.


Eh.. is that not the same thing as they claimed with Windows 8; "Everything at once"?

Getting Windows on every platform has been a Microsoft vision for some time but the Mobile Phone train has left the station with Apple and Google on board.
The tablet market is dominated by Apple. But closer integration with Xbox will be possible of course.
The home entertainment systems seem to be Microsoft's focus and they have something called HoloLens that will enable you to compute like in Sci-Fi movies.
Reportedly people are blown away by HoloLens.

Microsoft will use a new Browser in WIndows 10 called Spartan it is not clear if this is the IE engine with a new name or a completely new browser.

The dream of Microsoft everywhere lives on

And since they do their benchmarking with Linux these days maybe in the future we can have something like this:

Windows 10 will have multiple desktops which is a great improvement.

I bet is IE with a new name. IE is so integrated in the OS that is like a Cancer.

They sure are trying super hard to own your Living-Room (pun intended).

Yup sounds about right but if they have come up with a new revolutionary thing then they deserve credit....If people want it,
