To refresh, Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system will finally bring the unified 'Threshold' ecosystem that's been promised for a while, with a single iteration capable of working across multiple form factors and device types, from desktop, laptops and tablets to smartphones and even the company's gaming console.
The Redmond giant when first announcing Windows 10 in late-September, said it had decided skip the name Windows 9 to emphasise the jump the new operating system will make in terms of catering to mobile devices and Internet services. Microsoft's Joe Belfiore had then added that Windows 10 will offer "the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the benefits that exist in Windows 8" to help business users make the transition.
Microsoft released an 'early technical preview' (Read: How to Install) of Windows 10 soon after in October, and before the end of the month, released the first update for it, introducing the action centre and other UI improvements.Written with agency inputs
