If you’re one of the millions of consumers either not satisfied with Windows 8 or completely avoiding it, we’ve got good news for you. Windows 10 is coming this Summer.
In speaking at the Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, the Executive Vice President over Operating Systems at Microsoft announced a continues and integral partnership with Lenovo, Tencent and Qihu 360. As part of a push to showcase the Windows experience on a multi-lingual front, the Microsoft EVP took to the stage and displayed the company’s latest global innovation “Windows Hello”. This Windows Hello system would require specialized hardware, including a fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors so it is unlikely to be broadly used state-side, but what may come as more interesting is the breadth of languages that Microsoft will reach out to this year – 111 of them.
Reaching to the 1.5 billion user market share that Microsoft owns today, the company is looking to keep up, and with the integration of the Cotana system, it will be interesting to see if their Summer launch builds on the OS. For American and other English speaking nations, we aren’t as worried about the language. The operating system started here. What we’re looking forward to is the new hybrid between Windows 7 and Windows 8 which brings the useful accessibility of the modern OS with the familiar usability of the old OS, and does so for free.
We can’t wait to see what Microsoft has coming around the bend, and we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
