Microsoft Windows 10 Would Be The Last Version Of Windows

It seems Microsoft has found it's 'nirvana` with Windows 10, the developer announced that Windows 10 will be its last version of operating system at Ignite 2015 conference in Chicago. This announcement surely ruffled some feathers here and there. Everyone around was skeptical as to what strategy is Windows adopting. Some gurus say, its a mere publicity stunt but some tech gurus point out to another pattern, Windows is going to adopt and enact upon.

When the announcement came that Microsoft will not go ahead with any other versions of Windows, people worldwide were amazed and confused. Initially everyone thought for a second that Windows was shutting down but when clarifications came, people started speculating its strategy according to their analyses. Some learned people say that the Windows will keep a pattern similar to Apple's. Apple launched its Mac OS X, 15 years ago and has been updating it since then. Every major update Apple brings for its OS X is named differently, but the basic OS remains the same. This is definitely a better approach to avoid fragmentation in the Windows OS Eco-system which Microsoft's is aiming to converge not only on Desktop but across all devices in future.
