Windows 8 Support
The world is waiting to hear from Microsoft about its brainchild Windows 9. In a recent post, Microsoft revealed a few details about Windows 9 and unsurprisingly, the revelations have amused most. If what media around the world is reporting is true, Windows 9 will be more of a cloud computing operating system. The newly elected CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella believes that cloud computing will be the heart of future computers. So, he does not want to take chances by not integrating cloud computing options with Windows 9. He believes that Windows 9 has greater scope in the future than the present because it is an operating system that has envisioned future computing.
Nadella believes desktops, laptops and smartphones will be replaced by tablets
The head of the tech giant also believes that the computing devices such as laptops, desktops and smartphones, which are popular now, will be replaced by tablets sooner than later. The reason for this change, according to him, is that tablets would allow a person to do both the tasks that can be done in a smartphone and PC. Moreover, cloud computing could work better with tablets.
Windows 9- the grand project of Microsoft
Microsoft has admitted that Windows 9 will be its biggest project hitherto. Although Windows 8 was a major project and the tech giant was much hopeful about its success, it didn’t work out due to one or the other reasons. Currently, it appears that Microsoft has learnt lessons from the past, from the low adoption of Windows 8 upgrade.
Upgrade To Windows 8
It is believed that the basic principles of both Windows 8 and Windows 9 are the same. But, the tech giant has adopted an ergonomic and logical approach towards Windows 9 than Windows 8. Like Windows 8, Windows 9 will be a touch screen friendly operating system. Nonetheless, it won’t ditch traditional Windows users.
Microsoft makes a steady transition to the cloud computing
Looking at some of the past major releases of Microsoft, it becomes quite clear that the tech giant is making a slow but steady transition to cloud computing. First, it was Windows Azure and then came Office 365. Both projects have received more positive reviews than any negative remarks.
Microsoft said that Windows 9 would integrate more convenient and straightforward options for upgrade than Windows 8 upgrade. It is said that the OS will integrate a single option called Upgrade to Windows 9. With this option, the upgrade becomes smoother, and faster.
