Many people disliked the drastic changes of Windows 8, which seemed to mix together a touch screen environment and the normal operating system limiting some users.

With the introduction of Windows 10, Microsoft seems to have nicely balanced the touch and non-touch features, which will please many users.
The brand new Windows 10 is filled of other features that boost its popularity and usefulness. One of these huge updates is the famous Cortana. Cortana is a voice and text activated personal assistant much like Apple’s Siri. By saying the magic words, “Hey, Cortana,” your are then able to use Cortana as a search application. Other applications can also integrate with Cortana allowing many features beyond searching on the Microsoft Edge browser.

With all the constant criticism towards Internet Explorer throughout the years, Windows 10 with thusly be introducing a new and improved web browser. The Microsoft Edge browser will have a huge new and improved inner engine, improving performance. Edge will, as well, have a new extension system allowing extensions to easily move over from Chrome and Firefox. This browser will hopefully become an influential competitor to Chrome and Firefox and will have enough features allowing even the grumpiest of Internet Explorer haters to switch over.
All these features Windows 10 will be providing sound very enticing. Now when will it come out? Well, Microsoft has announced a time period release of roughly late July of 2015. The release will definitely be this summer though, even if the July release is pushed back a bit.
