Microsoft has announced that Windows 10, the company’s new operating system, will be available starting today as a free upgrade or with new PCs and tablets. The phone version of the OS will arrive at a later time.
Windows 10 includes features such as Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-based smart assistant, an Xbox app for gaming and a Microsoft Edge,a new web browser that replaces Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
The software will work across all Windows-powered devices for the first time, and sees the Start menu reintroduced, Internet Explorer scrapped, and a voice-activated assistant called Cortana introduced.
Windows 10 is a lot more like the Windows everyone knows. More people were using the (no longer supported) Windows XP than were using Windows 8.
