Windows 10 announced

Hot news! Microsoft announces Windows 10.

The full article is on Microsoft blog. Also, you can watch the announcement below.

In a nutshell:

  • Microsoft aims to create common platform from on-chip solutions, through phones, tablets, convertibles, notebooks, PCs, servers and gaming platforms (Xbox)
  • The UIĀ won’t be common for all platforms (whew).
  • Start menu is officially back! You will be able to pin tiles to the menu.
  • Snapping to screen edge will be enhanced (Windows will suggest applications to pin to other edges)
  • New window switch button is introduced (works a little like Win+Tab from Aero, but looks more flat)
  • Windows now will support multiple desktops.
