Why you should install Microsoft’s new Windows 10 OS, and how it compares to Apple’s
Posted November 02, 2018 09:20:14 Microsoft is now releasing the first public preview of Windows 10, the company’s next major update to its flagship operating system.
The company released the preview of the new OS today, and while it’s still very early, the first screenshots you see of the operating system show off what’s to come.
Windows 10 will be a “new era of computing,” Microsoft said, and its features include:As the name implies, Windows 10 will feature a new “Metro” style of interface.
It’ll be a hybrid operating system, meaning that Windows 10 can be run on tablets, PCs, and even Xboxes.
It will also run on Windows PCs, Macs, and Linux machines.
Windows Insider testers will get the preview for free.
You can also download the preview today for free if you want to get a taste of what Windows 10 has to offer.
For the uninitiated, Windows is the company that’s built its operating system around, which means that its operating systems tend to be fairly similar.
Microsoft has a long history of bringing its own apps to the Windows platform, but it’s mostly been to the delight of PC enthusiasts who are desperate for new ways to use their computers.
As part of the Windows 10 upgrade, Microsoft will also be bringing some familiar features back into the Windows store, which will bring many familiar features to Windows PCs and Macs.
Microsoft also plans to add new features to the store that will allow you to easily download apps from the Windows Store to your PC.
Microsoft hasn’t said how many of the promised new features will be included in the update, but the company says it’ll be adding them to the full version of Windows.
While Microsoft isn’t quite ready to talk about how many features it’s bringing to Windows 10 as it’s only starting to roll out the new version, Microsoft has said that it plans to release at least 100 new features in the next two years.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 preview comes just days after the company announced a partnership with a local car manufacturer, Toyota, to bring its “CarPlay” technology to cars.
CarPlay works by taking control of your vehicle’s infotainment system, allowing you to access your device and access various functions, like charging, navigation, and media playback.
The update for Windows 10 comes just one day after the tech giant also announced a deal with Samsung, allowing consumers to use its Galaxy S6 smartphone to stream video and music from services like Netflix.
