Meet your next operating system
Yesterday Microsoft officially rolled out Windows 10 in several key markets around the world, including the Philippines. Just like Microsoft promised, Windows 10 will be a free upgrade to eligible Windows 7 and 8.1 devices, which includes both tablets and PCs. Windows 10 has been redesigned to include many features that Microsoft nixed with their move from 7 to 10 (the Start menu).
- Cortana, the personal digital assistant, makes it easy to find the right information at the right time.
- New Microsoft Edge browser lets people quickly browse, read, and mark up and share the Web.
- Continuum optimizes apps and experiences beautifully across touch and desktop modes.
- Built-in apps including Photos; Maps; Microsoft’s new music app, Groove; and Movies & TV offer entertainment and productivity options. With OneDrive, files can be easily shared and kept up-to-date across all devices.
- The all new Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 tablets are available today in the Windows Store.
- Built for work on-the-go, the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps offer a consistent, touch-first experience for small tablets. And for all your digital note taking needs, the full featured OneNote app comes pre-installed with Windows 10. The upcoming release of the Office desktop apps (Office 2016) will offer our richest feature set for professional content creation. Designed for the precision of a keyboard and mouse, these apps will be optimized for large screen PCs, laptops, and 2-in-1 devices like the Surface Pro.
Eligible users for the upgrade should have already been getting prompts to download the new OS. Microsoft is also partnering with retailers that will assist people in installing Windows 10 on their device. Check out the full list below:
