Windows, Surface, and Windows Phone
Windows 10 heralds a sea change for Microsoft. No longer the "sacred cow" that Windows has been for the company's history, Windows is now one of many platforms targeted by all of Microsoft's services. But Microsoft's flagship operating system and the beautiful devices coming out of Redmond are a showcase, delivering the best user experience with Microsoft's services, while supporting a diverse ecosystem of applications, devices, and use cases for customers that have grown to depend on Windows in both their personal and professional lives.
Microsoft is serious about change. Upgrades to Windows 10 are free for the first year, and Microsoft is well on track to achieving its goal of deployment on one billion devices within two years. It's delivering Windows as a service, as well, with regular and significant updates every six months or so, in addition to monthly (and as-needed) security patches and updates, and interim builds provided to Windows Insiders.
On October 6, Microsoft will announce its new devices, including the Surface Pro 4 and new Lumia phones. Expectations are high for a new Microsoft Band and a few surprises, as well.
It's a whole new world for Windows, and for the devices Microsoft is building to showcase its flagship OS and services. Join IT Unity and community lead Corey Roth to stay on top of key developments in Windows and Microsoft devices, and how those developments impact you at home and at work.
