Windows 10: ‘The first step of a whole new generation of Windows’

Windows 10

Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s executive vice president, Operating Systems, says Windows 10 will be “built from the ground-up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world.”

Windows 10 “represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows,” writes Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Operating Systems, in a blog post. “Windows 10 unlocks new experiences for customers to work, play and connect. Windows 10 embodies what our customers (both consumers and enterprises) demand and what we will deliver.”

Windows 10 will run across an incredibly broad set of devices – from the Internet of Things, to servers in enterprise datacenters worldwide. “Some of these devices have 4-inch screens – some have 80-inch screens – and some don’t have screens at all,” he writes. “Some of these devices you hold in your hand, others are 10 feet away. Some of these devices you primarily use touch/pen, others mouse/keyboard, others controller/gesture – and some devices can switch between input types.”

We’re not talking about one user interface to rule them all, he writes. “We’re talking about one product family, with a tailored experience for each device.”

Windows 10 will be “built from the ground-up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. This new Windows must help our customers be productive in both their digital work and their digital life. This new Windows must empower people and organizations to do great things.”

Windows 10 will “deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time. It will be our most comprehensive platform ever.”
