Gartner: Windows 10 is a New Chapter for Microsoft


I’m sure most of you heard about the Windows 10 announcements from Microsoft yesterday. Steve Kleynhans was briefed thoroughly by Microsoft and thought it would be appropriate to do a “guest blog”. So here is what Steve thought of these big announcements.

Windows 10 is a new Chapter for Microsoft

On Jan 21, Microsoft raised the curtain on the next act for Windows 10 and provided some significant insight into how the operating system and Microsoft are evolving.

As a quick recap, Windows 10 is currently going through a year-long “preview” period.  This started with the Technical Preview in September 2014, and will end with the release of Windows 10 which we expect to see this coming September or October.  In between, Microsoft is continually updating the preview to test and demonstrate new capabilities and aspects of the OS.  The announcements this week are aligned with the next major update of the preview: “Technical Preview 2″.  This update focuses more on consumer rather than enterprise features which we expect will be expanded in the coming months. The new preview includes the revamped tablet experience, a more complete feature set, and the first look at the upcoming phone UI.  While there is still work to be done, Microsoft is demonstrating progress from the original preview. For those who had issues with Windows 8’s UX, Windows 10 should be more comfortable to work with. Those who like Windows 8’s touch UX will appreciate how the experience has been evolved to better adjust to different types of tablet and 2-in-1 devices. All users will appreciate how the user can control the experience based on their preferences.
