Follow. Spartan si chiamerà Microsoft Edge. Good luck displacing Windows 7, Microsoft, it's still growing.

If it's the first Monday of the month, and it is, it must be time to have a look at desktop operating system market share as recorded by StatCounter and Netmarketshare.

Good luck displacing Windows 7, Microsoft, it's still growing

It looks like the skids are really under Windows XP now. Netmarketshare has it down from 16.94 per cent to 15.93 per cent. StatCounter has a dip to 10.91 per cent, down from March's 11.21 per cent. We know there are still big corporate XP users out there, such as the operator of the infamous Fukushima nuclear power plant, and there are anecdotes-a-plenty to be had about pirated XP in developing nations. Perhaps the move's finally on? If so, the two click-counters' data doesn't quite explain where users are going. StatCounter desktop OS market share data April 2014 to April 2015. Windows 10: 'Free' can potentially cost a lot. It's been about a year since I’ve felt prompted to write anything; but the recent Microsoft announcements about Windows 10 has brought on the urge.

Windows 10: 'Free' can potentially cost a lot

I'm not really interested about the pricing or upgrade options for consumers as they have all been commented to distraction. My interest is the concept of the Operating System as a service. Whenever anyone changes the goalposts on a supplier-customer relationship, it piques my business interest as there is no such thing as a free lunch -- particularly not from the likes of Microsoft or Apple. Streaming Xbox One games to a Windows 10 PC is awesome.

Ever since Microsoft announced its plans to bring Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 back in January, I've been dying to try it.

Streaming Xbox One games to a Windows 10 PC is awesome

While the Xbox One dashboard has been updated to support the new feature, the Xbox one app for Windows 10 isn't quite ready yet. At its Build developers conference in San Francisco this week, Microsoft is demonstrating Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs to the public for the first time. Microsoft kills off Windows Media Center. Microsoft stopped actively developing Windows Media Center in 2009, but the company still shipped an unmodified version in an upgrade pack for Windows 8.

Microsoft delivers new Windows 10 preview without Spartan browser

Microsoft’s big promise of the Windows 10 development has been a focus on delivering regular builds to testers to gather feedback, but the company has struggled to get its latest release out of the door. Despite that, the new release comes less than a week after it was compiled within Microsoft, an impressive speed that's similar to how Xbox updates are delivered. Disappointingly, this new preview won't include Project Spartan, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer successor. While the software maker had promised the next preview would include a test version of Spartan, that’s not arriving just yet, and it appears the company misspoke. Windows 10 Technical Preview updated to Build 10041. A new Windows 10 Technical Preview build is now rolling out to Windows Insiders.

Windows 10 Technical Preview updated to Build 10041

Microsoft announced that Build 10041 is now available to PC users who signed up for the Fast ring. "Like all of the previous preview builds this one comes with a collection of new functionality and bug fixes," said Gabriel Aul, Microsoft General Manager of the OSG Data and Fundamentals Team, in a statement. Build 10041 is the first Windows 10 Technical Preview update to participants of the Windows Insider program since late January. Microsoft recently announced that it will be pushing out more frequent updates to users in the Fast ring. If you're looking for stability rather than being among the first to try out new features, you should switch to the Slow ring. "10041 was built on Friday, and you're getting it less than 48hrs after the majority of our engineers in the Operating Systems Group receive it," Aul explained.

There are some nice new features present in the build and visually the UI is beginning to come together. There's still a lot of work to be done on it before that summer launch timeframe, but from the new look login screen through to the translucent start menu and everything in between, it's starting to get somewhere. While we're picking through everything, check out a whole bunch of images below. Build di Windows 10 a velocità grottesca: Microsoft ci pensa - Le nuove “prove tecniche” di Windows 10, cioè le build destinate a chi è iscritto al programma Windows Insider, arriveranno con maggiore frequenza.

Build di Windows 10 a velocità grottesca: Microsoft ci pensa -

Con quale frequenza? Microsoft non sa dirlo. Gabe Aul, general manager del gruppo Osg Data and Fundamentals, su Twitter e attraverso un blogpost ha cercato di spiegare il perché e il per come sia tanto difficile stabilire una cadenza regolare oppure anticipare con sicurezza la data dei rilasci. In risposta, a quanto pare, a numerosi solleciti e domande giunte dagli sviluppatori e dagli utenti Microsoft più entusiasti, ansiosi di poter testare nuove build del sistema operativo.

Analyst Thinks Microsoft Will Lose Market Share, Despite Windows 10. Microsoft is hard at work on Windows 10, with the new operating system set for launch later this year. But some market watchers still believe that the Windows platform will lose share. Despite the launch of the new OS. At least one analyst thinks that this is a very real possibility. Bob O’Donnell, a prominent technology analyst, is of the view that the Windows ecosystem will shrink from its current share of 90.4% of the desktop market last year to around 88.7% in 2015. The reason? Growth registered by both Google and Apple with their Chrome OS and Mac OS X platforms. Apple is forecasted to grab around 6.9% of the PC market this year, a small increase from the 6.2% it had claim to in 2014. If it holds true, then Microsoft will have a little worry on its hands. Difficult, but a very possible scenario, nevertheless. The dip may not be down to Windows 10, however, but just a signal that interest in desktop platforms is waning.

M.windowscentral. A new rumor about DirectX 12, the upcoming graphics API from Microsoft that will be include with the launch of Windows 10, suggests that it will allow graphics cards from both NVIDIA and AMD to be used in one PC gaming rig. According to what unnamed sources told Tom's Hardware, DirectX 12 will have a feature called Explicit Asynchronous Multi-GPU, which will allow for multiple GPUs to be combined for use in a game, such as Fable Legends or an application.

What does this mean? It states: "The source said that with binding the multiple GPUs together, DirectX 12 treats the entire graphics subsystem as a single, more powerful graphics card. Thus, users get the robustness of a running a single GPU, but with multiple graphics cards. " The same article also claims that DirectX 12 will let PC gamers install an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card inside their rig alongside an AMD Radeon card. Windows 10's Battery Saver feature tested.
