Everything is built in Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform, which means anything that developers design will be available across all of your Windows devices. Speaking of Microsoft’s “more personal computing vision”, Nadella said Windows 10 “is off to an unbelievable start” with over 270 million active devices, outpacing Windows 7 by 145 percent.
According to reports from ZDNet, Microsoft’s partnership with Ubuntu Linux’s parent company, Canonical will allow users to run Ubuntu on Windows 10. The Build will serve as a significant platform for attracting developers to the latest Windows software and any updates planned. Launching the app kicks off a welcome screen and a link to documentation that details what to expect when you switch over from retail to a dev kit, as well as the requirements.
