Windows 10 comes as a follow up to the largely unsuccessful Windows 8/Windows 8.1 operating system. Windows 9 was skipped as an interesting bit of marketing by Microsoft to further distance Windows 10 from its predecessor. Windows 10 will come as a free upgrade to anyone running a valid license of Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1.
Here are a few of the features of Windows 10:
- The Start menu and the Windows desktop have made a return in Windows 10.
- Using a feature called Continuum, Windows 10 will automatically adapt its display to the type of device that it’s on.
- While Internet Explorer will still be around, Windows 10 will touting a new web browser called Edge.
- Microsoft’s voice assistant, Cortana, will be integrated directly into Windows and into the Edge web browser.
- You can receive notifications about your operating system from the new Action Center.
- Windows 10 will natively support a number of biometric security features, including facial recognition, fingerprint scanning, and iris reading, though most PCs won’t have the required hardware for these features.
- Purchasing Windows 10 entitles you to free Windows upgrades for the life of your device.
A single license of Windows 10 Home is expected to cost $119, while Windows 10 Pro is expected to cost $199.
