Moments ago, Microsoft held it's live event in San Francisco, California where they have just unveiled their latest OS. The event was being held behind closed doors, out of view from the public with around fifty journalist attending, blogging the announcement away. At 12PM CT, the lights began to dim and an announcement was overheard throughout the auditorium: "Ladies and gentlemen please take your seats, the presentation will begin shortly."

Taking the floor, Windows Chief Terry Myerson walks across the stage and takes his place near the podium saying, "Our new Windows must be built from the group up for a mobile-first cloud-first world. Start with the name. What should the name of the new Windows be? It wouldn't be right to call it Windows 9. Windows One. But unfortunately, Windows 1 has been done." After trolling the journalists, he began to describe how they wanted their new OS to be built from the ground up so that it would be able to link all devices, whether they are on mobile or on PC. "That new Windows is Windows 10."

Windows 10 is another version of the Windows 8 OS as it is a platform that is based on Applications. All of the applications will be made available across each platform your account is linked to through their new store, The One Store. The one store will be a place where you can look for new applications to organize your files and keep them all updated. You may pick and choose the apps you like and store them on the new customisable start menu. The start menu was a reimagined design that combined features from both Windows 7 and 8, allowing for applications to be placed and resized to fit inside of the menu. Another feature that you find that has been updated since its predacessor is the search experience. The Universal Search feature will not only pull information from your computer, but also from the internet.

Multitasking in Windows 10 has never been easier. They introduced a new feature into the OS called Task View, and it is centered on the taskbar. The taskbar is similar to OS X's Expose but instead of having all of the apps visible at the bottom, they are spread out across the screen when the taskbar button is pressed. It is accompanied by the "Snap Assist" UI that allows you to grab multiple apps from different desktops as well as snap the apps onto each side of the screen. For those with touchscreen PCs, this feature can be accessed by swiping from left to right on the computer screen. The touch screen feature is interchangeable, allowing you to activate it or turn it off whenever you so desire just by touching the screen. This Continuum feature will not only allow for a smooth transition between the two functions, but also causes the start menu as well as other core components to change in not only design, but functionality.
