Windows 10 is an upcoming operating system developed by Microsoft which will be released this summer. The goal of Windows 10 is to unify the Windows PC and/or laptop, Windows Phone, Windows Embedded and Xbox One product families, as well as new product categories such as the Surface Hub and HoloLens, around a common internal core. These products will share a common, "universal" application architecture and Windows Store ecosystem that expands upon the Windows Runtime platform introduced by Windows 8. Windows 10 provides further integration with Microsoft services and platforms, such as the addition of Cortana (an intelligent personal assistant), a notification system that can be synchronized between devices, and new Xbox Live features. Windows 10 will also introduce a new bundled web browser to replace Internet Explorer, called Spartan. During its first year of availability, upgrades to Windows 10 will legally be offered at no charge for licensed consumer users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
