Windows 10: “Last Windows” Means it will Continue as a Service
Did you notice how Apple launched OS X some 15 years ago and it is still called the same? Well, at least the basic OS name is the same whereas Microsoft used to brand every OS differently.
Now that you have that in mid, it would be easy for you to understand what Microsoft meant when it said that the upcoming OS by Microsoft is going to be the last version of Windows.
When they said at Ignite that “right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10,” it made a lot of the users fret.
However, it has been clarified by one of their spokespersons now that the OS will continue to get updates and new features on an ongoing basis, it is going to continue as a service.
Recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers.
So yeah, they might be taking a leaf out of Apple’s book here.
The spokesperson in question even assured that “customers can be confident Windows 10 will remain up-to-date and power a variety of devices from PCs to phones to Surface Hub to HoloLens and Xbox. We look forward to a long future of Windows innovations.”
This means they are planning on working with one Windows for all the platforms and keep updating the same operating system instead of releasing new brand after intervals like they used to.
What do you think of this approach?
