Microsoft shows off the future of Windows
This week, Microsoft unveiled what Windows 10 is going to look like for consumers and it's looking promising. The company is taking all the mistakes it made with Windows 8 on board and actually starting to listen to customers.
The new Start menu adapts to the type of device you're on and combines the old-school start menu with the modern look, just like it should have been when Windows 8 launched. Microsoft is also adding Cortana, its voice assistant to the desktop and a new browser, codenamed Spartan, which will be the focus instead of Internet Explorer.
The biggest (and perhaps most unexpected) news was Windows 10 will be free for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users.
I was impressed by the announcement; it feels like Microsoft has finally delivered what everyone actually wanted. If you want to try the new Windows you can download a preview version for free, today.
