“Windows 10 is a new generation of Windows designed to empower you to do great things,” said Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President, Microsoft. “Windows 10 starts to deliver on our vision of more personal computing, defined by trust in how we protect and respect your personal information, mobility of the experience across your devices, and natural interactions with your Windows devices, including speech, touch, ink and holograms.”

Windows 10 brings back the Start menu while enabling users to easily find their files, pinned applications and favorites. Windows 10 includes Windows Hello, Microsoft Passport and Windows Defender for anti-malware protection, and a commitment to deliver free, ongoing security updates for the supported lifetime of the device. Optimized for both keyboard and touch, the Windows 10 upgrade is designed to be compatible with Windows devices and applications.

Cortana, which the company says is “the world’s first truly personal digital assistant”, helps people get things done across all their devices. At launch Cortana will be available in select markets only. The software learns individual preferences to provide relevant recommendations, fast access to information and important reminders via talking or typing.
