Coding, Mobile and SSL Check: Tips for keeping a business website up to date

Microsoft unveiled its next generation operating system, Windows 10, against the expected numbering continuum - skipping 9 to 10, with supposed integration of the new OS across desktop and mobile platforms, as well as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Even as analysts have predicted the future Internet as "an evolving convergent Internet of things and services that is available anywhere, anytime as part of an all-pervasive socioeconomic fabric, made up of converged services, and shared data", Windows 10 represents a whole new generation of technology in that aspect.

Windows 10 will deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time, and it will be the most comprehensive platform ever, stated Terry Myerson, VP of the OS group at Microsoft.

Microsoft's biggest challenge, however is likely to be in developing an entirely converged desktop-to-mobile cum everything-else platform as related to integrating the experience and functionality of applications between desktop and mobile platforms.

The company have planned a converged application platform for developers, across all devices, with a unified application store. But, given the claim that a unified operating system can operate any application across any device; the user experience may be anything but seamless.

For now, what is sure is that Microsoft is keen to create a consistent user experience across every device.

Windows 10 "technical preview" will allow PC users to experiment with new, and carried-over Windows functions, and submit feedback/suggestions before Microsoft commits to a specific release date. You can join the Windows Insider Program to download the Windows 10 Technical Preview and try out features like the new Start menu, multiple desktops, snap enhancements, and others.
