Microsoft reveals the future of Windows

Windows 10 is a taboo for many users, due to its current policy of patching and minor updates. Among some computer tech friends, there are those who love and hate the system. Particularly I am not among the haters, however like every operating system there are aspects that in the short.

windows-10-future-microsoft-update-computex-2019-msix-ostree-flatpak-snap-ai In a publication on the official blog of Microsoft, corporate vice president of consumer and device sales, Nick Parker discusses the company's vision of a modern and robust operating system. In introducing the new Windows PCs that made up Computex 2019, several statements were made from a modern operating system, which was assumed to be the future of Windows. After all, it makes no sense for the company to extol features and features, claiming to be a modern system if it is not Windows itself (even if in a vision of the future).

These new modern PCs and innovative devices that the ecosystem will continue to build and bring to market in the future will require a modern operating system.says Nick Parker. In Parker's words we can see that such a modern system does not yet exist, or is in constant development. Something that fits perfectly with Windows in the current scenario and its updates, sorry for the disastrous words.

Nick Parker goes on, "Modern operating system upgrades are done invisibly in the background; The deterministic, reliable and instant upgrade experience without interruptions! A modern operating system, also secure by default, is the separate state of the operating system; separate calculation of applications; This protects the user from malicious attacks throughout the device's life cycle.. Was Microsoft planning a Windows with full abstraction of its applications and system? A type of sandbox in Windows apps. As Parker's words suggest, applications will be separate from the system core, a concept we already know in Linux with technologies like Flatpak and Snap for example. Another point about security of updates, and who knows a little about atomic updates and OSTree, knows that such methods ensure system integrity. It seems that Windows in the future will use similar methods. With such a technology from behind, the user would be completely assured of a background update, even if it were interrupted. Because of the way such procedures occur the system would not be affected. All this makes me think of Endless OS and Fedora SilverBlue, the unbreakable system. I recommend watching the video of the Tux Workshop channel and understand a little about this technology.

With all the problems Windows 10 has been experiencing with its updates, it's no wonder Microsoft is thinking of a way around these errors and make their system more modern. Nick Parker also suggests that through cloud and artificial intelligence, such a modern system can identify user usage patterns and make updates according to one's profile. These experiences are powered by AI, so a modern operating system is aware of what a user is doing tomorrow and helping him do it, and tweaking applications making them smarter.

A modern operating system is also multi-sense. People can use the pen, the voice, the touch and even the look.says Nick Parker. Indicating that accessibility is an important point.

Another point observed is the constant interaction with the internet, something that the so-called modern system must have, allowing the user to be always connected. A concept that Microsoft has adopted with ARM-based Windows 10.

According to Nick Parker Microsoft is investing to enable these state-of-the-art OS experiences and to deliver new ones that take advantage of the advances in silence.. Recalling that during all these words at no time Windows was quoted, however as I mentioned, MS would not speak of something that is not intended for your system. Otherwise, the many times mentioned modern system would not be Windows and particularly I don't think the company is talking about another OS.

More features were said for the future of Windows such as:

  • Cognitive recognition services (for assisting in photo tagging of the telephone);
  • Projection of Android screen on PC;
  • Use mouse and keyboard to interact with Android applications on PC;
  • Phone content on PC using Wifi or LTE.

Other issues were covered in the post on the Microsoft website, IoT, Office 365, Hardwares, etc. If you want more details access the following link. Microsoft has been demonstrating that it is thinking of a solid future for its platform. First announced their new packaging format, including Linux compatible, MSIX. After the WLS 2including the Linux kernel within Windows. And now it speculates common features in some Linux distributions, like Fedora SilverBlue and Endless OS. It seems that the platform tends to evolve and take the best of other systems. So maybe users won't suffer from Windows 10 upgrades that unfortunately are being true Russian roulette. What do you think about the future of Windows? Do you agree with the modern system so much said by Microsoft? How about accessing our Diolinux Plus forum and continue this matter.

Until the next post, be polite and complacent in the comments. Share and recommend the blog Diolinux, SYSTEMATICALLY!
