Windows 10 after Windows 8.1?

“We want all these Windows 7 users to have the sentiment that yesterday they were driving a first-generation Prius, and now with Windows 10 it’s like a Tesla.”

via Windows 10 is the official name for Microsoft’s next version of Windows | The Verge.

It looks to me that they now understand how bad the “Windows 8.1” name was. Plus it’s a marketing trick to upgrade sooner.. Bad call Microsoft!

Just imagine every product to start jumping version names! iOS 10 after iOS 8, Android 6 after Android 4, what else?

About the keyboard: “Now you can chat with friends and respond to emails comfortably.” Does it sound to you like a dig to Apple, and the competition in general?

It sure looks that Microsoft is speeding up! That it is starting to look on the rearview mirror of Android-Google.

P.S. Microsoft’s site might be experiencing some issues right now. Fair enough!

When users sign into Facebook, those familiar 10 blue links are still there. But Bing’s new sidebar connects searchers to friends that may have specific insight into their queries. If those friends have “liked” a Thai restaurant in Noe Valley or they posted photos from a recent trip to New York, they’ll pop up in related searches in the sidebar under the heading “Friends Who Might Know.

Great idea kai and a great feature that I will start exploring when the new Bing search is available wordwide (US always first!). Bing has a lot of way ahead of it but Microsoft seems to do the right things..
