Windows 10 Opens Opportunities for Developers

Windows 10 January Build is now available for download.

A new build of Windows 10 preview is available for download, Microsoft announced Friday morning. On January 21, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 10 platform worldwide and also announced that the new build would be available within a week, though not equipped with all features.In short, Windows 10 offers Microsoft’s boldest attempt to deliver what the company has been working toward and what developers have long been looking for: one platform upon which to develop apps for phones, PCs, tablets and other devices. According to Steve “Guggs” Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Developer Platform & Evangelism and chief evangelist for Microsoft, Windows 10 will offer developers the power, potential and reach of a truly unified platform. “What this means: with Windows 10, app publishers will be able to reach Xbox One, phones, tablets, embedded devices, PCs and emerging devices with one universal app via a single store,” Guggenheimer said in a blog post. “This truly means that you build your app once, optimize it for each device family after which you can distribute that app across all of the Microsoft client platforms. Microsoft announced this week that they would not be updating Windows RT to Windows 10 – the company’s next installment of their operating system – and it is difficult to blame them.

The build will download automatically for Windows Insiders overnight, or you can get it now by going to PC Settings > Update and recovery > Preview builds and clicking the Check Now button. According to the blog by Windows, in order to gain access to the preview builds, you have to join the Windows Insider programme, which is free of cost. If you need to start from the very beginning—in other words, you’ve never installed Windows 10 at all—check out our tutorial on how to install Windows 10 from scratch. The blog added that they are pushing out the Build 9926 out widely, flighting simultaneously to both ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ rings as well as available on ISOs.

These Windows RT-based tablets were the ones that used ARM-based chips, and boasted increased battery life and significantly better performance on particularly thin devices. You can also obtain the ISO for a clean install or virtual machine download here. “Some of the new features that Joe demoed on Wednesday will be available for our Windows Insiders starting today with our newest build – 9926,” Aul wrote. “However, not everything you saw on Wednesday is included in this new build.

Spartan’s new rendering engine is designed to work with the way the web is written today.” Moreover, developers will benefit from the fact that Spartan’s new rendering engine will be the default engine for Windows 10, Spartan and Internet Explorer, Weber said. There simply wasn’t much that was said positive about Windows 8, and Microsoft has proven – by skipping “Windows 9 entirely – to be difficult on the company. In a nutshell, here’s what you should expect in the new 9926 build: Cortana: Microsoft’s digital assistant has been ported over from Windows Phone, and makes an appearance in Windows 10.

We think that Cortana should interact with your Windows Phone, sending reminders to your desktop and taking over as a general search interface, to boot. Microsoft’s willingness to cut out certain applications, certain companies, simply due to the company’s desire to limit the clutter on the devices. Full-page Start menu: If you’d like, you can expand the new Start menu into a full-screen Start page that looks a lot like the way Windows 8 set things up (but with icons still on the lefthand bar) New Windows Store app: “It includes a new visual design which will be common across PCs, tablets, phones and the web. HoloLens is a virtual and augmented reality technology that overlays interfaces and 3D visuals onto the real world and enables users to interact with them.

API support is being built into every version of the OS. “We are working to make Windows 10 a unified, developer platform for ALL of our devices so you can reach the greatest number of customers with your work across phones, tablets, PCs, Xbox, IoT devices and the new Surface Hub and HoloLens opportunities,” Gallo reiterated. In addition, Microsoft plans to deliver Windows 10 as a service for free to a broad set of existing Windows users, including Windows 7 users. “This means that the potential of up to 1.5 billion devices, running one OS and one browser, will soon be open to you, the software developer,” Guggenheimer said. The new Project Spartan browser added will allow users to annotate a webpage using a stylus or touch interface, click on any section of a webpage to type out a comment and then share this page with friends or co-workers.
