In recent months, we see lots of changes taking place in the tech world and prominent players like Microsoft are leaving their traditional tactics for modern and unconventional tactics in hope of expanding their empire. The newly appointed CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, seems to be a visionary who has clear plans for the future growth and success of Microsoft.
Microsoft chooses unconventional ways for future growth
Microsoft’s recent decisions, especially the decisions to adopt unconventional ways to capture the market, are reported with much media hype. Decisions like rolling out MS Office on iOS were appreciated by a large number of users. In the past, the software giant was quite reluctant to extent its core services to third party platforms such as iOS and Android. However, it seems that the company has now realized that it can no longer survive in the market unless it adds interoperability to its core products such as MS Office.
Microsoft hopes to return to the market with Windows 10
Windows 10 is Microsoft’s dream project, although it was announced only recently. There are reports that Microsoft’s Developer team started working on Windows 10 immediately after the release of Windows 8. Initially, it was planned to be released as Windows 9 – as an upgrade to the Windows 8.1. However, the colossal amount of criticism Microsoft received because of Windows 8 flaws, made it rethink and rename it as Windows 10. According to Windows tech support desk, Windows 10 will be released as a brand new operating system.
Can Windows 8.1 users upgrade to Windows 10?
Questions like whether Windows 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10 are still unanswered and Microsoft hasn’t given any hits about it. As per Microsoft’s upgrade policy, Windows 8.1 users should be able to upgrade to Windows 10 without any issues. However, because Windows 10 is going to be an unconventional type of operating system, there can be some restrictions to upgrading to it from older operating systems.
Windows 10 – Ideal for both touch and non-touch screen ecosystems
Among the unconventional features that Microsoft has announced for Windows 10, what tops the chart is the hype that the operating system can work seamlessly on both touch screen and non touch screen devices. The integration of a brand new feature called Continuum is what makes it possible.
Sources privy to Windows tech support desk reveal that Microsoft has kept many unconventional features secret. Some of them will be revealed with the Consumer Preview, which will be released early next year.
