Microsoft designs next major Windows 10 update

Microsoft has just unveiled the next major software update, which is being pushed towards Windows 10.

The Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is expected to arrive sometime in September.

Then again, maybe there will be some juicy new creative hardware to follow up on the wonderful Surface Studio, which will reinforce the message. "It's the Clipboard you know and love, now cloud-powered". That's all part of its next Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which will push out to 500 million Windows 10 devices later this year.

Installing one of these distros from the Windows Store will allow users to easily run Linux in a virtualized environment, and will be able to swap between Windows 10 and Linux apps and tools. Honestly, everybody wants to eat Pushbullet's lunch these days.

This cross-platform integration will also be made possible for third-party apps, through the use of "Project Rome", with Microsoft showing how developers can code their apps in a way that will allow users to seamlessly continue their experience across different devices.

The system adds a universal Windows app Story Remix, which generates stories from photos, video, and user events.

The news that Ubuntu, SUSE, and Fedora will be available to install directly from the Windows Store would have been unthinkable a few years back when Steve Ballmer was at the helm of Microsoft. You can now add special effects, soundtracks, transitions, annotations as well as 3-dimensional objects to your videos and photos in mixed reality.

"Access all your files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on your device", he said.

In the 2017 Build conference, Microsoft announced Windows 10 Creators Fall Update - the next major OS update. Basically, this feature will essentially be a visual timeline of what apps you're working on in your PC.

Another feature will let users start working on a document on a Windows 10 PC and pick up where they left off on a rival phone.

Microsoft says that the Edge web browser will have improved responsiveness in the upcoming Fall creators Update. Microsoft will finally allow you to access OneDrive Files On-Demand. "We're excited for our customers to take advantage of the new features in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that will empower innovative experiences; a modern, unified design for cross-device experiences; and an easier path for developers to create for the future of computing". The platform aimed to increase user engagement by providing experiences that would blur the lines between consumers and their devices, irrespective of the latter's operating system or form factor. "Story Remix uses AI and deep learning to organize and transform your photos and videos into stories", Myerson said.

Microsoft announces motion controllers support for Windows Mixed Reality devices.

Timeline cleverly recognizes what apps and programs you were using on another device. You're a person that does different activities and you're going to choose different devices from different companies so we're going to make sense of that for you.
