Gary and Rod talk Windows 10

Posted 3 years ago in Tech by Ashleigh Lambert

This week saw Microsoft’s big reveal of Windows 10, set to launch later this year. While the company’s keynote delivery fell far behind Apple’s awe-inspiring presentations, Microsoft really has emerged like a phoenix from the flames this year. It reminds us just why they’re in the game.

Cortana, Microsoft’s new natural language tool, is set to far exceed what we’re seeing now from Siri, while its augmented reality helmet HoloLens is particularly exciting, following the closing of the curtains on Google Glass.

Listen in here for a full wrap up of the Windows 10 launch from Xero’s UK MD Gary Turner and CEO Rod Drury:

Full of innovations, I think that Windows 10 will be a big event and Microsoft will get the first place as IT company

Hmmm, first place as IT company with Windows 10.
Lets remember Windows 95 – a,b,c; Windows NT – versions 1 to ?, Windows 98, Windows ?, Windows ?, Windows XP (the first acceptable OS which worked well at service pack 3), Windows 7 – slow, but seemingly quite reliable…, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 9?? (whatever happened), (I’m sure I’ve forgotten some), and now 10. Hmmm….

Fascinating difference of opinion. The history of the Windows 8 flop reminds me of the Windows Vista disaster. Out of this came real learning about the customer base that delivered Windows 7, which most people rely on now. So fingers crossed that history repeats itself on this one and 10 is as they will be hoping in Marketing, a perfect 10.
I particularly look forwards to seeing how Skype is more fully integrated, which I believe will along with Cortana put the heat on Google.
