But instead of calling it Windows 9, as was originally planned, Microsoft will brand the release as Windows 10 to further distance it from Windows 8. The marquee feature? It will please fans of both Windows 7 and Windows 8.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/myerson-hero.jpg?1412127344" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-seeks-please-everyone-windows-10" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows Wed, 01 Oct 2014 01:34:00 +0000 44341 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 for the Enterprise http://winsupersite.com/windows-10-enterprise <div class="node-body link-body">About two weeks ago, Microsoft promised that it would unveil the enterprise features that will differentiate the next Windows version from both Windows 7 and Windows 8. Oddly, the announcement event for what is now called Windows 10 was actually pretty light on enterprise information. So here's a more complete look at what you can expect.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/win10-ent-hero.jpg?1412127269" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10-enterprise" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows Wed, 01 Oct 2014 01:33:00 +0000 44331 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Announces Windows 10 http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-announces-windows-10 <div class="field-deck"> Not Windows 9, not Threshold, not Windows TH </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft finally surprised us all: At the eagerly-awaited first briefing for the next Windows, the firm revealed that they had decided to skip the 9 and call it Windows 10 instead. From a features perspective, we only learned about a few minor new features that hadn't already leaked. And as promised, the technical preview won't ship until October. Which starts tomorrow, by the way.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-announces-windows-10" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-announces-windows-10#comments Windows 10 Windows 9 Windows Tue, 30 Sep 2014 19:11:00 +0000 44321 at http://winsupersite.com HP Announces $100 Tablet, $200 Laptop http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/hp-announces-100-tablet-200-laptop <div class="field-deck"> Looks like Kevin Turner got it right </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Yes, Virginia, the $200 HP Stream laptop is real.

And while technology enthusiasts are frothing at the bit thanks to an event this week dedicated to the next Windows version, we don't need to look to the future to see how Microsoft plans to compete.
