Windows 8 Application

Here is some news about the fall release from Microsoft. With the fall release, they are planning to release Windows 10, which will have latest activation schemes that will be able to tie up with the PC more effectively than it could until date.

The well-known Russian leaker WZor, managed to unveil the fact that Windows 10 will soon hit the markets this fall. This person seems to have a good record of all the releases by Microsoft. In a post on Ru-Board in his native language, he mentioned that the latest update would be a major update to Windows 8. However, the update 2 for Windows 8 is expected to be rolled out in the month of August this year for all who have done a Windows 8 transfer recently.

Windows 10 With Latest Activation Options

WZor asserts that the release of Windows 10 would be with major advertising bombardments and a better method of distribution. The latest PC would be released with the advanced activation schemes that would tie the OS more closely with the computer. The users will have to sign in to Microsoft store when trying to download Windows 10, but the users would not get an activation key. Moreover, Windows 8 will have no more updates past the Update 2 that is due this month but they will not have any latest features added to it.

The stimulus behind the latest activation method is due to problems in china. A few weeks ago, China banned Windows 8 in the country. WZor asserts that Microsoft has plans to announce the release of Windows 10 at the conference called the Worldwide Partner Conference at the Washington D.C. Nevertheless, this claim by WZor went missing but WZor assured that the latest operating system would be rolled out this fall.

Windows 8.1 Update 2 Could Reinstate Start Menu

Windows 8 Transfer

     Windows 8 Versions

Despite having sold millions of Windows 8 copies in all this time, one thing Microsoft cannot make this OS do is outperform its predecessors, Windows 7 or Windows XP. Most of the Windows user base still prefers the latter to the outlandish Windows 8.x, which earned Microsoft untold censure for scrapping the Start Menu from it. Many who went in for the Windows 8 transfer even reverted to their old operating systems, through one way or another.

Since they released the OS, Microsoft has been given no chance to forget what an integral part of Windows the Start menu had been. Users are actually quite acquainted with the presence of the Start menu in Windows ecosystem. So when Microsoft dropped it from the design, loyalists put out an even louder cry than at the time of the Vista fiasco.

It took some time, but Microsoft has finally relented to bringing it back with their next update for Windows 8. A screenshot of the new Start menu was revealed amid bustle of the World cup festivities. This looks more like a hybrid, of the traditional menu and the metro look, which Microsoft have suffered so much over they are averse to letting it go completely. This new menu lets you pin stuff to it, and so will be more productive, supposedly.

Windows 8 Transfer

                        Windows 8 UI

Another interesting thing the screenshot showed was that the menu was running on Windows 8.1 Pro build 9788, which means it is compatible with the next update, so there is a chance we will see it as early as with Win 8.1 Update 2. The image has been confirmed as real by reliable authority, and sources say Microsoft uses a similar build inside its offices. However, this still does not mean we will be getting it, whether with 8.1 Update 2, or later. We just have to wait until then.

The Windows 8.1 Update 2 is slated for somewhere around the end of this year if they are on schedule and keep on it. It will be a treat to get the Start menu back that soon. Microsoft taught many of us long past, why not to have too many hopes riding on an impending release. Windows 8 was highly anticipated before it was due, as was Vista, and look where that went.

Therefore, as said, we will have to sit back and wait. Meanwhile, if you have trouble with Windows 8 transfer and returning to Windows 7 or older, we offer tech support with that.
