Microsoft Jumps Ahead to Windows 10 Dylan Duarte October 1, 2014 Microsoft is further bluring the line between phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops by providing an even more unifying experience with Windows 10, the lastest version of their trusty operating system. What’s that? You don’t remember Windows 9? Where have you been? Windows 9 has been great! One of the best operating systems in years! Yeah, Windows 9 is the real deal. Yeah, those were all jokes, because Microsoft is skipping right over Windows 9 and going directly to Windows 10. Why, you ask? That’s a very good question and one I don’t have an answer for. I would bet good money that even the higher ups at Microsoft don’t have a good answer to that question. Remember, this is the company that brought you the Xbox, the Xbox 360, and then the Xbox One. They’re not great with numbers. So the Start Screen is gone, replaced by a highly customizable Start Menu that mixes the well-liked feel of Windows 7 with the widely-loathed Live Tiles from Windows 8. In addition to applying Windows 10 to various devices, Microsoft is further unifying the experience by combining modern and traditional apps into “universal” apps. Everything you know has been combined with everything else you know. Windows 10 is still in the very early stages. RIP Windows 9, we never even knew you. via Future Looks Share This With The World!
