Microsoft Windows 10

Choosing to skip over number 9 and jump straight to Windows 10, Microsoft is promising big things with its next operating system, due this fall. There’s one thing we already love about it: it’s free.

Windows 7 and 8.1 users will be able to upgrade for free during the first year, and that’ll be a year filled with a lot of new features. Promising a unified platform and an overall emphasis on cohesiveness between desktops, laptops, tablets, phones, and Xbox, Windows 10 is aiming to erase the bad taste many people were left with in Windows 8. Cortana, the Halo-inspired personal assistant currently found in Windows phones, will be built-in, offering a virtual assistant for sending emails, checking scores, and more. Gamers will be able to play Xbox One titles on any PC in the house. Windows Holographic promises a step forward in virtual reality, and Microsoft is even replacing Internet Explorer with a new browser codenamed Project Spartan. If you don’t mind guinea pig status, you can sign up for an early build of the new OS now.
