Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has today confirmed that his company will join all major versions of Windows into a single operating system. During the company’s quarterly earnings call today, Nadella told analysts that Microsoft intends “streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system, this means one operating system that covers all screen sizes.”
“One unified platform with universal Windows apps”
Microsoft has a hot mix of separate versions of Windows working separately from each other. The CEO now says that they have one team with a common architecture. He also further noted that this new move will benefit users and developers — this new move is intended to make sure all Windows editions, have one unified platform with universal Windows apps that work across all devices running the OS.
This new strategy of merging its operating systems is a step away from its main rivals like Apple which keeps Mac OS and iOS separate. We now look forward to a new Windows OS with apps that work on PCs, laptops, tablets, Windows Phones, and Xbox consoles.
