Microsoft is still a long way from releasing a full-fledged Windows Phone operating system, but at least the company has finally released the operating system for the next-generation Windows 10.
That’s according to a blog post by Microsoft Senior Vice President of Windows Engineering Adam Goudie, who explained the process behind the upcoming release.
“We’re very excited about the first release of Windows 10, but there’s still a lot more to do.
We have been iterating on the Windows 10 UI and design, and we’ve been working on new features for the coming months.
We’ve been hard at work on the new Windows Store, the first time the Store will be integrated into Windows 10,” Goudies said.”
When we released Windows 10 for phones, we had to change some things to make it easier to upgrade devices.
For example, it’s now possible to migrate from the old Store to the new Store if you upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise, or Windows 10 Mobile.”
Goudies also confirmed that the operating environment for Windows 10 devices is still under development.
“Windows 10 is still in the very early stages of development, but we’re still getting feedback and testing devices, so we expect to deliver an updated preview of Windows on PCs in the coming weeks,” Grouet said.
Microsoft has already unveiled the first glimpse of the Windows Insider program, which allows customers to test the operating systems of Windows phones and tablets before the final release.
