Microsoft on course towards unifying its OS.

Start 1

Microsoft is about to come up with a unified OS for all devices designed for Windows. This revelation comes in the wake of a series of events at Microsoft, including their abandonment of Nokia’s feature phones, quitting of its Android efforts, and massive job cuts. With this new disclosure, the company aims to integrate, or unite the main forms of its OS into one unified system.

Microsoft Chief, Satya Nadella, posits that this will result in an Operating System designed for all screen sizes. The previous management focused on different OS platforms, each with its own architecture. This move is aimed at making life much easier for both developers and users. Developers will be at ease in the sense that they will only have to develop one app that is capable of running across all platforms of windows. The different platforms are PCs, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and even Xbox consoles. Currently, a developer has to come up with different apps for each platform, since the platforms run on Windows OS with different architecture.

Additionally, this change is also bound to be welcome by regular users. This is particularly due to the fact that integration of apps over the various platforms will be much easier. A unified Operating System makes it simper to, for example, seamlessly continue with a project from one platform like a PC to another like a smartphone or tablet. The current system has certain versions of similar apps for the various platforms, and this is not integrated as cleanly as it should.

With this move, it seems that Microsoft is pushing towards cleaning up its eco-system and reducing clutter. A clean ecosystem that is well put together is one of the key steps towards maintaining customer loyalty in the contemporary world. Generally, moving from one eco-system to another is a difficult task, and it seems that Microsoft wants to ensnare its customers into such an ecosystem through its OS unification program. It’s a smart move, and should pay off once it is up and running.
