    Microsoft has just launched what it calls a Windows 10 emulator that’s supposed to show you the advantages of the new operating system and let you see them in action to decide whether an upgrade is worthy or not.

    Although it’s called an “emulator,” this new website is more of a portal that contains details about Windows 10’s features, showing info and videos that present the most important options in the operating system at work.

    You can thus get to meet Cortana, find out more about the new Start menu and pretty much everything else about Windows 10 from this page, and Microsoft believes that all of these should help you make a decision on whether you should install the new OS or not.

    There are 11 topics on the website, and each comes with at least one video, so you should easily figure out what Windows 10 is all about. Of course, a genuine emulator that would actually let you try out Windows 10 in your browser would have been a much better idea, but this clearly involves more work, and Redmond just wanted to go the easy way.

    Have you checked it out? It's pretty limited, and really more of an animated demo than a real emulator (which, to my way of thinking, is an environment that acts like -- ie, emulates -- some target environment). Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I'd expected more by way of user piloting in an emulator. Does that make sense, or am I being too persnickety here?

    Makes perfect sense. To call that demo site an emulator is about the same than calling a glossy car brochure a test drive. At least for me an emulator is something allowing me to use and control the emulated system.

    In fact, I am wondering where Softpedia got this "Microsoft has just launched what it calls a Windows 10 emulator ..."; trying to find more information only brings up "Windows 10 Demo" which as far as I know is how Microsoft calls this new site. Not an emulator. A demo.
