Today at an event in San Francisco, Microsoft made the next version of Windows official. Windows 10, no not Windows 9, will be available in 2015 and includes the triumphant return of the Start Menu, a new universal search feature, and “multiple desktops”. Windows 10 is designed with keyboard and mouse users in mind giving “the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the elements of Windows 8″.
The final consumer version of Windows 10 won’t be available until next year, but developers and those too curious to wait can download the Technical Previews early. Tomorrow Microsoft will make a preview available for laptops and tablets with a version for servers coming later. These previews will be buggy and full of issues, but it’s only meant for those with the knowledge of how to use the platform. If you want to sign up, you’ll need to join the Windows Insider Program.
