Microsoft to Offer Single Version of Windows in Future

At present, Microsoft manufactures Windows RT, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. That is quite a trio of services that are just making things more complex. The head honcho of devices at the giant firm, Julie Larson-Green wants to take a leap in the dark by melding the three systems in some future time. She said, "We have the Windows Phone OS. We have Windows RT and we have full Windows. We're not going to have three."

A related comment was made by the Windows chief, Terry Myerson too. A single application store is in the pipeline. And a streamlining of the process has already begun. The developer registration system has been integrated for the user base. Many other small changes will be made in the days ahead. A mobile OS without fuel cell worries or safety concerns is possible. However, it comes at a price. And that is the end of agility in the scheme. 

The goal and direction of the Microsoft team working under Julie is fixed and it will hopefully accomplish what it ultimately plans to do. The urge to merge the Windows platforms is so great that nothing can stop the inexorable synthesis of fundamentally different divisions. 

Meanwhile, wearable technology such as smart watches and glasses are being explored too. Sensors which are an integral part of these futuristic devices are currently hurriedly being manufactured on the assembly lines. A smart watch that sports a 1.5 inch display screen not to mention a Surface connector is in the works. Finally, Interactive tools are the wave of the future and Microsoft definitely wants to be a part of it.
