Microsoft, the software giant famous for its graphical systems never relents. Year after year, windows products keep undergoing diversification in a bid to keep pace with the times as well as provide an interactive experience for others.
For over a decade, every year has been the same, with the company churning out more targeted products than the previous.
Over time, Microsoft has shifted focus from merely producing tools for the market in general, to tailoring products for users with very specific needs. This has gone a long way in boosting innovation, since the target is always specific.
Currently, Windows is in the process of rolling out crucial tools that might just define the year in terms of technology. Below are examples of the top new windows technology in 2015.
Here are the top 4 things you can expect in 2015:
- Windows 10:
Early this year, the company announced a plan to release its latest operating system, Windows 10. This caught many by surprise since it seems so soon after the release of version 8.1. The release date for this product lies somewhere in July (and October, for some places).
The new version of windows takes computing to a completely new level, where the sole focus is on interactivity.
The software behemoth is offering free upgrades to all windows users, starting from those with windows 7 and going up to 8.1, regardless of whether the initial software on your device is legit or pirated.
This is a break from the past, where windows cracked down heavily on pirated versions. The functionalities of the new tools range from those that provide a better display for those whose work is to enhance security.
- Advanced Biometric Technology:
Windows have continually pushed to kill off the password, due to its attendant security vulnerabilities.
Now, the company is moving towards advanced biometrics such as iris scans, facial recognition and fingerprint profiling in a bid to log in only legitimate users on devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers.
Depth sensing cameras are going to play a big part in the way windows devices recognize users.
- The Implementation of Sensors:
Currently, some windows devices are able to switch between laptop and tablet interfaces if you just flip them.
This is possible due to the presence of sensors that are able to detect subtle changes in the angling of the device.
In addition, Windows have announced most of its platforms for this year will be able to detect carbon dioxide levels, temperature and atmospheric pressure.
- Advanced Graphics Potential:
With the ongoing revolution in gaming, Microsoft is finding it hard to make headways on the Xbox front.
This gets even more complex given the headways PS4 from Sony has made in the last couple of years. As a result, Windows is working hard to develop graphic capabilities that embrace the power of the current Windows operating systems.
The goal is to bring gaming to a new platform.
With Windows, it is always easy to predict the direction things will take in the future, but recent developments have shown a flip side to this software outfit.
It therefore pays to monitor developments in the market to see what the nerds at Microsoft are thinking.
