Windows 10 Latest Updates and Reviews: Business Customers Preview available and Consumer Preview to be launched on January
With the flaws of the Windows 8.xx, we are hoping that Microsoft will patch up these consumer-facing flaws with the release of Windows 10 and bring enterprise customers into the modern era of computing. Tech gurus are claiming that Windows 10 is the most audacious software project ever attempted.
Recently, there was a Windows 10 preview and is a small, and tailored set of new codes, but there are more to come. In this release are desktop-focused features for business customers and a consumer preview will be launched in January.
According to Alex Wilhelm of Techcrunch, Windows 10 is a desktop-focused Windows build that contains much that is traditional, but in an updated fashion, while placing power-user tools next to consumer-apps and services.
Here is what Alex Wilhelm reviews on the upcoming Windows 10:
"When I first fired up the preview, my Start Menu had live tiles next to a static Notepad icon, resting next to an refreshed File Explorer icon, both under a Metro PC Settings icon, and all three under a Pictures icon which might be sourced from Vista.
The preview feels like that quite often: A blend of old, updated old, and new. And, surprisingly, it somewhat works.
There is plenty that works, like metro apps and desktop apps sharing space in the zoomed out modes There are two: Traditional Alt Tabbing, and Task view.
Here we find more tension: If you click on the Task view button, you see icons for open apps, similar to Alt Tab, and, below, your multiple desktops. And if you hit Windows Tab, you get the same thing. But if you hit Alt Tab, you get just the icons, and no virtual desktops. Why have two separate but very similar interface elements, and why have three ways to access them? I can understand having one for touch, and one for keyboard, but three is confusing.
There were three things I was most excited about playing with in the preview: The Start Menu, metro apps on the desktop, and how Microsoft would fuse the Start Screen with the new user interface pieces.
The chiste, however, was on me, because Microsoft forces you to choose either Start Menu or Start Screen in the preview. You can in fact turn off the Start Menu, if you are willing to log out. But once you have selected the Start Screen, you can't access the Start Menu.
The downside is that the goo that will link the Start Screen, and the desktop environment is occluded. So we can't see from this preview how well the Start Menu will integrate with the Start Screen itself. And thus we can only judge what we have from a desktop perspective.
It's almost as if Microsoft planned it that way.
I will say that the Start Menu is competent, and in keeping with my expectations. As are metro apps on the desktop. And the Start Menu appears to be the same, so I suppose I am content there as well.
It's going to be a very busy 250 to 300 days in the Windows world."
