Windows 10 announced - Bye bye Windows 9comment_here

windows 10 
Well, obviously MS thought that it was a better idea to just skip Win 9 and jump straight to Win 10 instead.

Windows 10 has been announced as of today, but if you want to get your hands on it earlier, you'll either have to wait until the early part of 2015, or wait 24 hours. Tomorrow, Microsoft launches its Insider Program, offering a preview mode for both laptops and desktops.

Being Touted as the company's "most comprehensive platform, ever," Windows 10 stresses a single product family, platform, and store. The best feature of the new OS is the familiar start menu for mouse users and the like.

New look:
The new version looks like the pre-Windows 8 Start Menu, revealing a list of apps, folders, and a search bar, but to the side will be a series of Live Tiles. It will be familiar to many veterans of Microsoft Windows, and you'll find a Windows 7 Start Menu with a Windows 8 twist. The search function works much like it does when typing from the Windows 8 Modern UI, revealing apps, files, and web results.

Free will with Apps:
You can now Window the apps  within the traditional desktop, adding more flexibility in how you use them—since currently, they can only be used at full-screen or within the confines of "snapped" windows. For the newly designed apps you can snap them to the desktop, in the much traditional fashion.

Task View:
When you initiate "Task View" a series of small desktop views will be displayed at the bottom of the screen, with larger previews of the apps being shown off in the middle of the display. You can also quickly select and move around apps from different desktops with a new "Snap Assist" function, which will be nice for the power users out there.

Different versions:
Microsoft will also introduce a different version for those using touchscreen computers. Yes that's right we'll finally see something different from Windows 8 exclusively as a universal operating system.

Instead of a small menu consisting of a bunch of text and small Live Tiles, touchscreen users will be given something that more resembles the Windows 8 Modern UI, while still in the traditional desktop. Microsoft is really working to blend both distinct interfaces into one experience that works for all users.

What would work best in this instance is if we received the option from the setup menu to decide which version we wanted, or if we could freely switch between the two modes.
