- Windows 10 Technical Preview Gets Its First Major Update
The Window 10 technical preview continues to chug along, and while we don’t have an official release date for the finished software, it’s widely assumed that it will appear before the end of 2015.

In a move that would have been unthinkable a few years ago, Microsoft has made its development platform freely available and ready to support not only Windows, but Macs, Linux and Apple, and Google’s mobile phone platforms. Microsoft will now be working with organisations like Xamarin who have been providing a version of this platform across different mobile operating systems for some time but doing so without explicit and direct support from Microsoft.
