    Evidence of Cortana found in win9 Build9834 resource files


    We've seen a number of Windows 9 (Threshold) leaks in the past few weeks, courtesy of a German website WinFuture, revealing a number of interesting features such as virtual desktops, notification center, Start menu, and more. In the past few months, we've heard rumors that Microsoft may bring Cortana to its desktop operating system.
    Recently, the folks at WinFuture found several footprints of the personal assistant in the resource files of the Windows 9 Technical Preview Build 9834 as shown in the image below. They further mentioned it will offer a similar set of features and functionality as it does on Windows Phone. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in the build at the moment -- just like the redesigned Internet Explorer 12.

    Interesting !

    The so expected september "release" will bring some nice things alongside with Cortana but I don't think I would need or want Cortana on my desktop !

    Just a thought.

    Could it be everything you tell Cortana you are also telling the world.

Windows 10 resource usage
One of the good things is the small footprint of Windows 10. In my installation it uses only 8.5GB on the C partition and less than 500MB of RAM. I am sure that willl grow somewhat with the RTM edition, but it is a good start. 72517252
