Meanwhile, Microsoft tends to make mistakes with Windows that are often disturbing in nature. After Microsoft released Windows 8.1, a lot of users where unhappy since the standard Start Menu was replaced by a clumsy Start screen. A lot of 8.1 users tried to restore this by making use of third party applications.
Right now, it is being expected that Microsoft will showcase Windows 10 features through the upcoming Surface Pro 4. Reports suggest that Windows 10 will include Cortana, Microsoft’s exclusive intelligent personal assistant software which helps users with their everyday tasks. Microsoft named it after the artificial intelligence character from Xbox Exclusive ‘Halo’ video game franchise. Jen Taylor provided her voice for both Halo and software versions of Cortana.
Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Operating Systems, stated in a Windows blog that Windows 10 will be more than a one-time upgrade. The company will continue to keep it updated during the supported lifetime of this device with no additional costs. In layman terms, if users upgrade to Windows 10 within a year, Microsoft will keep supporting it for life.
Meanwhile, the latest Surface Pro 3 variant from Microsoft is powered by an Intel i7 processor and apparently, it’s cheaper than the other variants. On the downside, only128 GB of built-in storage space has been included in the latest Surface Pro 3. The original variant which had an i7 processor came with 256 or 512GB of SSD storage. The latest variant with 128GB SSD and i7 processor and 8GB RAM is priced at $1,299.
