Video: Sneak peek at Windows 10

    “Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows, unlocking new experiences to give customers new ways to work, play and connect,” Terry Myerso, executive vice-president of Microsoft Corp., said last week when the operating system preview was released. “This will be our most comprehensive operating system and the best release Microsoft has ever done for our business customers, and we look forward to working together with our broader Windows community to bring Windows 10 to life in the months ahead.”

    IT World Canada CIO Jim Love, is covering the Gartner Symposium ITxpo Symposium in Orlando, got an early look at Microsoft’s(NASDAQ: MSFT) latest operating system during a dmo of the Windows 10 technical preview.

    “Microsoft has got it right,” said Love. “The Windows 10 interface is more friendly, more intuitive and if the early reports are true – more easy to install than many of the past versions we’ve endured.”

    Microsoft said Windows 10 security has been hardened against breaches by imporving user authentication and the OS also employs containers and data separation techniques at the application and file level.

    “Windows 10 does what every design model should be doing,” said Love.
