Soon there will be only one version of Windows. Microsoft currently supplies the market with three operating systems – Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone. But the company hinted that soon there will be only one version of Windows, suitable for all devices from PCs to Smartphones.
At the conference, UBS Global Technology Head of Windows Julie Larson-Green said that Microsoft is actively working to unify their operating systems. We have a Windows Phone, we have a full-fledged Windows RT and Windows. Operation Three, we will not – said Larson-Green.
Prior to that, Terry Myerson, vice president of operating systems at Microsoft, said that in the future Windows RT will work on Smartphones, and is currently working in a corporation combining application store for Windows and Windows Phone.
It is expected that in the coming months, Microsoft will take other steps to approximate systems. We know that there is a certain world more mobile operating system, which provide less stress on the battery and lower security risks. However, all this comes at the cost of functionality.’s Why we believe that the right would be our vision and our direction in which we keep going, – said Larson-Green.
She also added that the current priority of the company is to don electronics. Recall that, according to rumors, the company is now testing its own smart watch with a 1.5-inch display. Also, according to some sources, Microsoft is working on its own analogue of smart glasses Google Glass.
Larson-Green said that Microsoft will be able to integrate these new devices and their own software. Just like the invention of the mouse or touch interface, will be a new way of interacting with electronics, – she promised.
