New Microsoft OS
As far as the updates for mobile operating systems are concerned, you cannot pick the best one that easily, especially between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. Even though Microsoft has its own ecosystem, it is entirely different for tablets and Smartphones. Windows RT is used for tablets whereas Windows Phone OS is used in Windows Smartphones.
As there are various operating systems available for different devices, it is always confusing the way in which Microsoft operating systems work. Other than Windows Phone OS and Windows RT operating system, some of the other operating systems are Windows 8 for desktop computers and laptops. However, it looks like Microsoft is looking to combine both the operating systems of tablets and Smartphones into one single operating system.
The Redmond-based tech behemoth is all set for the release of Microsoft new operating system, the Windows 10 Operating System. This will be a combination of both the operating systems used in Windows phones and tablets. As far as the release date is concerned, it is expected to come out in the year 2015. It is also expected that an early bird release might be rolled out before that.
Now talking about the name for the new operating system, Windows 10 Operating System will not have any other name. Microsoft may plan to call the operating system simply as Windows. When you look into the latest commercials released by Microsoft for Lumia 930, it is evident that the operating system would be called Windows since the Redmond giant has been referring to the operating system the same way. Moreover, they did not mention the phone to be Windows Phone in the commercials.
Windows 10 Operating System
Apart from the commercials released by Microsoft, the latest HTC’s Windows run phone is also not referred to Windows Phone. Instead, the Smartphone is called by its name HTC One M8 for Windows. The usual practice of operating systems from Microsoft was to add a number with every new build, like Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 98, or Windows 95. Nevertheless, with the Microsoft new operating system, looks like numbers do not matter anymore.
Hence, from now on, Microsoft is planning to roll out updates for the forthcoming operating system, rather than releasing major operating system platforms as such. It looks as if Microsoft is taking keen interest on knowing about the feedbacks of Windows users. If you are looking to upgrade, it would be worth to wait until the latest Windows 10 OS is out.
