The new Windows & Surface families
How could the new Windows be?
Three major Windows versions:
Windows, Windows Pro, Windows Enterprise
- Windows means productivity. Built to run on any device from phones to tablets, convertibles and laptops. This version gets rid of the Desktop and is a touch-centric OS. Office is fully-integrated with the OS and offers all the functionality of the present versions.
- Windows Pro is the OS for people who create stuff. Start Screen is replaced by a very funcional Start Menu which brings the apps and shortcuts you need without leaving the desktop. Desktop is, in fact, the centre of the action and all the apps and programs float and are freely resizable and overlapable, easy to use with mouse or touch.
- Windows Enterprise offers the functionality for advanced users and is available as an upgrade from Windows Pro.
Windows and Windows Pro can get along with about any form factor.
