The anticipated announcement of the next Windows OS has finally arrived, and with big news. Microsoft is skipping Windows 9 and releasing Windows 10 next fall. As the users have requested for nearly 2 years the "start menu" will return better than ever before. A surprising development is that the beta for the new operating system starts immediately. I am really impressed with this bold move. Distancing themselves from the problems of the past, and coming closer to users is a fantastic decision. As a user, being able to test their product and provide feedback to help improve is critical. By doing this, they will drastically reduce the chances of creating a product the users don't want. Part of good testing is verifying that not only a product works, but that the user-base will enjoy and understand the product. I'm excited to download the OS and test it out.
