Windows 10 is here to change the game
Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system (OS) marks a major turning point for the company. For the first time, the Windows OS will be available for free - for a year after its release for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users.
Microsoft is promising to fully support Windows 10 for the entire life-cycle of the device (whether it be PC, laptop, tablet, or phone), which is a major shift from the previous strategy of only offering OS support for a limited period. This is a major part of the Seattle-based company's increasing focus on providing services rather than merely a platform.
