Microsoft is planning to attract the end users to the devices running on same software. Apple has successfully achieved this target by making iPhones, iPads and Macs all playing well with each other. Microsoft had to take this gamble as its Best Ever Windows was declining especially in the emerging market of smartphones and tablets where Microsoft failed to grab the market. On the contrary Android OS took the market very efficiently without any prior experience of the OS industry.
Microsoft Windows 10 will be available as Service and it is the same concept which Microsoft earlier introduced with the Microsoft Office suite by introducing the Office 360 as a service instead of a product. Microsoft Legendary Windows OS runs on more than the 90 of the computers all around the globe and it was the game changer in the computing industry. But the late and slow response to the emerging market of smartphones was not less than a disaster for Microsoft where its Windows Phone OS only runs on some 5% of all devices.
Microsoft plans to run Windows 10 on more than 1 billion devices including PCs, tablets, smartphones and other appliances by the 2018. This will be a really big challenge for Microsoft as its last version of Windows 8 only runs on 15 % of PCs all around the globe despite it was released some 3 years ago back in 2012.
