Windows operating system have a long standing repute of being the best in business. Since their launch in the last decade of the twentieth century they have been enjoying tremendous popularity and fame. It all began with the launch of Windows 97. Since then Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows vista and Windows 7 as well as Windows 7 ultimate have enjoyed unrivaled commercial success. This trend took a hit when Windows launched the Windows 8. A revamped and more interactive operating system as was claimed by Windows. It had many salient features up it’s sleeve but the commercial statistics did not reflect those strengths. Intimidated by the failure of their last offering Microsoft decided to regain the lost grounds by quickly launching an updated version. There was not much fault in the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. They had a faster booting time, better security features, and some applications that would make enterprise administrator’s job surprisingly simple. To this it had added security features useful to businessmen and individuals alike. Many other operating systems did not provide that kind of security features at that price.
Where Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 lost out were that of its much acclaimed metro interface. Though it supported features like touch screen, voice recognition, and other features found in the higher end smart phones nowadays it did not have the stability and familiarity of the previous Windows operating systems. What entrepreneurs and individuals prefer over outright speed of use is stability and familiarity. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 did not have that.
Technically much haven’t changed since the introduction of a new upgraded engine with the Windows 7. Certain graphical user interface changes and some minor tweaks were all that was new in Windows 8. Windows 10 / Windows Threshold is about to be launched in a very short gap after Windows 8. This does not allow for much scope of development either. So it will be wiser not to expect any significant changes from that of Windows 8. Some changes are certain and these include a thorough revision of the graphical user interface. It is rumored that the highly popular vista interface is going to make a comeback with Windows 10. What remains to be seen is that how much of these rumors actually hold in reality. For that we need to wait for the official launch of Windows 10.
Other configuration requirements are expected to remain the same from Windows 8. Windows 10 will be available in two structural architectures. The 32 Bit and the 64 Bit architectures will be available. The hard disk capacity requirement is expected to remain constant too. The 32 bit will require a hard disk capacity of 16 GB and the 64 bit will require a hard disk capacity of 20 GB free space. RAM is slated to be 1GB DDR3 for the 32 bit and 2GB DDR3 for the 64 bit variant.
