The new Windows version for phones will take on certain features from its desktop and tablet counterparts, according to purported screenshots leaked by a Chinese website. Microsoft offered us a peek at Windows 10 for phones at a press event last month. Now a few alleged screenshots are providing a closer look. In one key change, some of the context-sensitive menus seem to be getting tweaked to more closely resemble the ones on the desktop and tablet editions of the new OS, according to photos leaked by Chinese website IT Home, as spotted by the Verge. That's not surprising as Microsoft is specifically gearing up Windows 10 to provide a more consistent environment and experience across PCs, tablets and mobile phones. Microsoft is also looking to the Windows 10 name and refresh to generate more customer awareness of its mobile operating system and Lumia mobile phones. The goal is to use the Windows 10 experience as the linchpin across your PC, tablet and phone. And Microsoft definitely could use a boost in the mobile world.

Microsoft is mashing up the capabilities of the Xbox One with Windows when the company pushes out the next major upgrade for the operating system. And this is potentially the start of something bigger for the corporation’s gaming division. In the United States, 58 percent of people who play games on both PC and console spend a significant amount of money on each platform. And 10 percent of people playing on both, more than 7.5 million Americans, are big spenders on both platforms. According to research Newzoo, this creates an opportunity for Microsoft to capture more revenues from gamers as it evolves the Xbox app on Windows 10. “If MIcrosoft can lure Xbox gamers that are already spending money on the PC to migrate this spending to the Xbox app, it can take more money from the same gamers’ wallets,” reads a Newzoo report. Newzoo’s Peter Warman explained to GamesBeat that the Xbox app could help build a community of gamers around the world that are more willing to work within Microsoft’s ecosystem.

Microsoft is making a free version of Windows 10 that will run on the updated, quad-core microcomputer. Microcomputing fans take note -- there's a new Raspberry Pi in town.The all-new board brings a host of new hardware, including a Broadcom 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and 1GB of RAM. Those upgrades, the Raspberry Pi Foundation says, make the Pi 2 Model B a much more powerful computer -- not just a good computer for its $35 price. The Raspberry Pi is an extremely simple computer that can be yours for very little money. It looks and feels very basic, but can be built into any number of geeky projects, and is designed to get youngsters interested in coding. "It's been successful beyond our wildest dreams," said Raspberry Pi Foundation founder Eben Upton at the London launch of the Pi 2 Model B, noting that since launch, 4.5 million Pi boards have been sold to date. "Over time it's become clear that there is interest among children in learning computing," Upton said. The Foundation says it won't be discontinuing the other Raspberry Pi boards, with the A+ board --

Here’s what to do immediately after you install the Windows 10 January Technical Preview Few people expected it, but Microsoft released the Windows 10 January Technical Preview bits at 9 a.m. PT on Friday. If you’ve been running the earlier tech previews, it’s one small step back and several giant steps forward. Stability reports are excellent -- I haven’t had any problems on a dozen machines. If you don’t yet have your update and are willing to ride the beta roller coaster, sign up for the Insider Program, choose a suitable PC (or VM), and give it a whirl. Now that Microsoft’s servers have emerged from terminal meltdown, it should be relatively easy. If you're trying to install the latest Windows 10 build on a Windows 8.1 PC, you may be greeted by the notice "Windows can't be installed because this PC uses a compressed operating system." I got it while trying to put build 9926 on a brand-new Asus Transformer. The culprit? WIMboot. It's a Microsoft technology that squeezes Windows into a smaller footprint, so Windows can essentially boot from a compressed image.

Windows 10: Preparing for Microsoft’s next enterprise OS PDF Print E-mail

While Microsoft’s recent Windows 10 event had a strong consumer flavour, the company also unveiled a number of changes to the operating system that will undoubtedly impact corporate IT. Significantly for IT departments, Windows 10 will have a new update model. There is also a new programming interface (the universal app development platform) and integration of the OS with Microsoft’s Azure cloud services. The return of the Start Menu may make Windows 10 look more like Windows 7.5, but under the skin it’s a direct descendant of Windows 8.1. Many of its key features have been trialled in Windows 8, or are updates of Windows 8 elements, focusing on the desktop rather than on touch. Continuous updates While Windows 10 will still be licensed to ship with new PCs, the focus, according to Windows lead Terry Myerson, is “Windows as a service”. And that will change the company’s relationship with its end users. A key element of the new model is Microsoft’s forsaking the big bang OS update in favour of continuous

Microsoft's Windows 10 OS will provide a new set of opportunities for developers to build apps for PCs, phones and devices via a unified platform. With Windows 10, Microsoft is opening a new page for Windows users and a vast set of opportunities for developers. In short, Windows 10 offers Microsoft's boldest attempt to deliver what the company has been working toward and what developers have long been looking for: one platform upon which to develop apps for phones, PCs, tablets and other devices. According to Steve "Guggs" Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Developer Platform & Evangelism and chief evangelist for Microsoft, Windows 10 will offer developers the power, potential and reach of a truly unified platform. "What this means: with Windows 10, app publishers will be able to reach Xbox One, phones, tablets, embedded devices, PCs and emerging devices with one universal app via a single store," Guggenheimer said in a blog post.

 Microsoft's Spartan browser

Before Microsoft's January 21 Windows 10 reveal, a lot of information had leaked about Microsoft's new Windows 10 browser, codenamed "Spartan." During the January 21 event, Microsoft officials showed off a glimpse of Spartan in action, promising that it would be available to testers in its Technical Preview program in the coming months. The first public preview of Windows 10 mobile for Windows Phones and under eight-inch tablets is coming in February, but it won't include Spartan, Microsoft officials confirmed. And next week's January Technical Preview test build of Windows 10 for desktops won't include Spartan yet, either, Microsoft execs have confirmed. During yesterday's demonstration, Microsoft officials showed off how users will be able to annotate and share Web pages using Spartan, as leaks previously indicated would be the case. They also showed Spartan's built-in reading experience capabilities and the expected Cortana integration. And, as previously leaked, Spartan will work on Windows Phones, tablets and PCs. In effect, Spartan is the replacement for "Modern" IE (the Metro-Style/Windows Store version of IE that shipped with Windows 8.) On January 22, Microsoft officials went public with more about the internals of Spartan via a post to Microsoft's IE Blog. Microsoft is positioning Spartan as a brand-new browser -- something different from Internet Explorer...For more complete details visit our forum.

Spartan Browser Could Be Named

The Spartan browser, or more accurately understood as 'Project Spartan' is a next-generation web browser for Windows 10. Its main features include being a Store app for dynamic updates, using the older IE11 rendering engine for legacy websites, Cortana integration, and the ability to annotate right on the web page for document sharing. However, Spartan is not the final name, just the internal codename that Microsoft is currently using for the project. The question is, what will Microsoft call the browser upon its final release? A new report suggests a few names are being kicked around and we have the list. The information comes from a person who participated in an online survey from a company acting on behalf of Microsoft. Although 'Spartan' was not named specifically, it was referred to in the description including "Writing on webpages", "A built-in digital assistant" and the fact that it is a browser from Microsoft launching later this year. No doubt that the survey is referring to Project Spartan. This list would create possible combinations such as 'IE Evex' or 'Microsoft Elixa' or 'Internet Explorer Edge'. Those possible combinations are interesting because, if accurate, it demonstrates that Microsoft is considering dropping IE or Internet Explorer from the new name. That is something that has been brought up before due the heavy baggage associated with the browser...For the possible names visit windows8newsinfo forum.
