Microsoft is all set to unveil the Windows 10- the latest iteration of its popular operating system in the coming months.
However, prior to confirming the launch date, Microsoft has announced all the editions that the Windows 10 OS will be launched in, beginning with the oldest and the most popular desktop version.
Names the Windows 10 Home, the desktop/laptop edition will bring with it a range of new features like the Microsoft Edge browser that will replace the legendary Internet Explorer, Windows Hello face-recognition and built-in universal apps.
An additional Windows 10 Pro edition will allow business to connect up to domains and use the Windows Update for Business feature.
With the addition of Windows 10, Windows phones will be officially renamed as Windows 10 Mobile, and will feature Continuum for Phone as well as touch-optimized versions of Microsoft Office. Similar to the desktop version, an additional Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise edition will be launched exclusively for businesses.
Also to be launched are the Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 10 Education, and Windows 10 IoT Core systems for various purposes.
"We are making strong progress with Windows 10, and we are on track to make it available this summer. And because we have built Windows 10 to be delivered as a service, this milestone is just the beginning of the new generation of Windows. Starting this fall, customers can expect ongoing innovation and security updates for their Windows 10 devices, including more advanced security and management capabilities for businesses," said Microsoft's Tony Prophet.
