On January 23, 2015, Microsoft released windows 10 update with Cortana, the new Xbox app, and many of the other new features revealed at its January Windows 10 event.
The windows 10 Technical preview is not a simple ISO image like windows 8 preview. It is being released via a new ‘’ Windows insider program that ask for user feedback and also provides private firms for discussing trouble shoots with Microsoft engineers.
Here are Windows 10 hardware requirements.
Processor: 1GHs or faster with support for PAE, NX and SSE2
Ram: 1GB (32-bit) or 2GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space: 16GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 GRAPHICS WITH WDDM driver
You’ll also need a Microsoft account and Internet access. Your monitor’s resolution should be at least 1024×768. Some interface changes are small but they give windows 10 attractive look. Nicer taskbar, the start menu having a simple control to flip from a small menu to a full-screen. The charms bar has changed like a windows phone style. The full control panel is still there but over time everything will migrate into settings, this build also has the first version of the interface changes Microsoft calls Continuum. This is called tablet mode and you can trigger it from the Notification bar, it switches all your windows to full screen, which is a very simplistic way of handling a tablet interface but it more useful for touch users.
The messaging app also looks like Windows Phone feel, bringing back the integration of text messaging with online messages- this time Skype. The Maps app takes the five different phone navigation apps Microsoft put on windows phone and brings them together in one app where you can search for places you can also navigate automatically pictures walking or driving depending on how close your destination is, can give you public transport routes.
Two really useful features in windows 10 for photos named automatically enhancing photos like adjust brightness and contrast & not showing the same photo multiple times.
