Microsoft has launched the latest iteration of their Windows OS, named as Windows 10, at a consumer event held at Redmond. The new OS brings together the best from Windows 7 and Windows 8, which has resulted in a more polished UI and lovely looking OS on the whole.
The most notable feature in Windows 10 is of course the return of the Start button and the Start Menu. Microsoft has cleverly incorporated the full screen live tiles look into the Start menu, but this time around (thankfully) it is optional, and that is a welcome change. I have never been a big fan of the full screen live tiles look, and it was frankly one of the things which kept me from moving to Windows 8 from Windows 7.
Another important addition to Windows 10 is Cortana, the digital assistant. Cortana talked just like a human, and cracked jokes at the presenter during the demo, which I doubt was faked by Microsoft (a bit).
Microsoft also announced that from now on there would be only one Windows, be it for PC’s, phones, Tablets, or the newly announced Surface Hub. The best part is that Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for all users running Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and even the users running Windows 7.
But the most intriguing and most amazing part of the presentation was HoloLens. It was a surprise announcement by Microsoft, but definitely a welcome one. HoloLens is a device which you can wear on your eyes and make your living room into a virtual desktop. It uses Holographic images to display applications or windows, on your walls or tables or wherever u wish for them to be at. Check out the video below to understand more about HoloLens.111
