Microsoft Lunched New OS : Windows 10


Brad Chacos has already outlined the steps for downloading and installing the Windows 10 Technical Preview on a virtual machine or hard drive partition. I went the simpler route: I took an older machine (a Surface 2 Pro), wiped it clean, then reinstalled and updated Windows 8 to the present.
t’s a humbling and amazing thing to work on Windows, which is used by over 1.5 billion people in every country of the world. From kids playing with computers for the first time, to writers and journalists, to engineers, to gamers, to CEOs, at some point Windows has empowered all of us. In the Windows team, we’re proud of this – but we also know that the world today is very different from the one in which Windows grew up. 

Today, devices outnumber people. Connectivity is like oxygen. The tension between the desire for agility versus stability poses a huge challenge for IT Pros. Experiences – no matter what device you’re on – just need to work. The only thing that hasn’t really changed is the situation for developers – still too much to do, and not enough time. One way to look at it is that Windows is at a threshold  :-). It’s time for a new Windows. 

This new Windows must 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.
That new Windows is Windows 10. Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows. 

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.
