    Windows 10: Can Microsoft get it right this time?


    Later this week Microsoft will provide more details of Windows 10, most likely focusing on how the new operating system will look and feel on smartphones and tablets.

    According to Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft is likely to unveil a version of Windows 10 that's expected to work on Windows Phones and smaller Windows tablets running ARM and perhaps Intel processors.
    Microsoft will be hoping that by making it easier for developers to build for tablets and smartphones it can take some of its dominance of the desktop world and port that to the mobile world.
    That may help a bit, but will not in itself create the breakthrough that Microsoft wants: when it comes to mobile, Microsoft's Windows Phone is still a distant third in a two-horse race.
    Microsoft is generally considered to have lurched too far towards mobile with Windows 8 in an attempt to head off the threat from tablets.

    One can certainly hope so, but they first actually learn from their mistakes...

    Hopefully they listen a bit more to their users now.
    Of course, they can't make anyone happy, but I read some comments and I saw this:
    "Microsoft please add title bar transparency"
    I thought: they'll not change the current one I guess, but they could add an option to make it transparent. This way, everyone can be happy.

    I think that MS is on the right track with this OS. For me at least it fits my needs much better than Win8.1 does. Keep in mind that Win8.1 is my primary OS and I use Win10 in a dual boot for testing.

    Now I hope MS takes the advice and suggestions from experienced windows testers and not implement frivolous changes. I find it funny when some "testers" don't know what an ISO is and they participate in this test cycle.

    They came real close to not making anyone happy with Windows 8.LOL

    For me I just adapt to a new OS and then I find my happy place. When Win8 came out and I started to test it I had to do a few hours of searching in Google to find out what was what but I was happy after that.
