Though, it’s quite a BOLD claim that, “Microsoft’s future might be determined tomorrow.” But, currently, Microsoft is not enjoying as much success as ten years ago. The era of Steve Ballmer’s had won one major achievement, Window 7. Although, regrettably this successful Window version would die along with the PC.
Thus far, Microsoft has truly managed to cope up with the current scenario of swiftly changing technology environment. As per the reports of Gartner, there are just 14% of PC’s along with the mobile devices, who are having Windows power. Though, this prominent failure is partly clear. In fact, Microsoft stayed leader for almost 2 decades. Taking into account the pace of tech evolution, it’s a long time ago. Really long enough to turn conventional, than the rest of the industry.
Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, since Feb 14th, stabs to get back Microsoft’s previous grandeur. The only way to get back its lost fame is that Microsoft copes to be as innovative as it was in the era of 90s. Nadella further told that, Windows 8 does not seem to be a big hit and we need to do more work.
Microsoft is announcing the next version of Windows, today. According to the officials, it will be just a technical preview, though the main features along with the philosophy will be quite enough to give an opinion. This Window needs to pass out its first test while declaring the death of Windows 8. Meanwhile, to bring the start button back might seem a new beginning for some, but it a major drawback in innovation’s perspective.
We don’t have any idea about the name of the Window either its Windows 9 or Treshold or just Windows. On the other hand, Reuters reported that Microsoft would be re-branding its prominent OS, analysts say.
Furthermore, according to some reliable sources, Microsoft will probably provide this window as a free upgrade to Windows 8 users and those who are using Microsoft XP will possibly get a discount. Microsoft will offer the option to download the new Window directly from the Microsoft’s website. Certainly, Apple also did the same with its Mac OS X in the past.
So, will Nadella actually manage to offer an innovative cross-platform cloud-oriented OS, which will eventually satisfy users? Tomorrow will probably disclose that what will Microsoft learned from the Android success.
