Microsoft has finally realized that people nowadays use multiple devices. This realization is evident on their new OS, the Windows 10. This operating system can run on all the typical devices most people use; from tablets to personal computers, the integration being superior to any of the past operating system. With this, it is believed that they’ll have a hold on the enterprise of the computing world, as most of the businesses (particularly the big ones) run on Microsoft.
On smartphones and such, Apple does have a better platform, however, Microsoft plans to make use of this leverage to have a firm hold on the Desk computers, laptops as well as pocket PCs. It won’t be a wonder if the time comes when Microsoft covers the management of corporate mobile devices.
Microsoft’s goal is to make Windows 10 the universal operating system. The one stop OS for all,no matter what the device is. However, great as the product may be, the problem is getting people to actually switch. Once people try the interface out, the company seems to be confident that it’ll stick.
They needed something to lure in the users, and thus came Cortana, the counterpart of Siri. Just like Siri, you can have access to the system using voice commands. They’ve also released Spartan, a somewhat improved version of the Internet Explorer. Spartan aims to provide a better browsing experience, a smoother transition when using multiple devices.
The OS offers a smooth transition. As opposed to Windows 8 which some view as a disaster, it provides a better distinction between a personal computer and a smartphone. There are still Windows 10 error but they are all very manageable.
It is evident that Microsoft is trying to push its market to pretty much every device. Being the dominant company when it comes to personal computers, they have set their sights on the world of smartphones as well. With the advancements of Windows 10 on tablets and smartphones they have indeed proven that they are still one of the key players when it comes to the mobile world. With this, we can see better competition coming from Apple and Google, and we can just hope that this will provide users like us a better experience on the next operating systems that are sure to come.
