Today Microsoft has launched its most awaited operating system Windows 10 in 190 countries. Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows. Windows 10 is a big step towards the operating system for every device, not just PCs but also for Mobiles and tablets. Microsoft will provide continuously updated for free. From the beginning, Windows 10 has been unique – built with feedback from five million Windows Insiders.

CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella said at launching of windows 10:

Our digital personal assistant Cortana is comparable to Apple’s Siri, and Google Now. If you think about our history in technology, we’ve had concepts that have changed how people have interacted with their computing resources. One of them was a graphical user interface (GUI), the second was the browser and the web. I think of Cortana as the third platform.[/pull_quote_center]
