Under the project name Redstone operates on Microsoft second major update for Windows 10. What the expected for summer 2016 package includes everything betrays ULTIMATE TECH NEWS.
Microsoft allows himself no rest and tinkers in the development of Windows 10. The Group delivered in November 2015, the fall update an upgrade from Windows 10 to Red stone in summer 2016 stoking again. Official information about the project, Microsoft has not yet been revealed. However, it is believed that Red stone the focus lays on the introduction of new functions after the developers have focused on improving the existing functionality in the predecessor (Threshold) substantially.
During a question and answer session to the Windows 10-style Microsoft gave an insight into the development of the system – Designer Jeff Feng also showed it for the first time a possible prototype of Windows 10.1. The project name is derived from the Red stone game “Minecraft” from which Microsoft acquired in September 2014th Redstone is in a precious building material.
Changes relate Apps and Start Menu
The screenshots for Red stone revealed few, but quite interesting details: The improvements expected from the Start menu, the app-use and design. Microsoft Sets the presented actually in the update, frequently used apps on the Start menu appear in future particularly prominent. New app-sizes are possible, also probably one improves the simultaneous use of multiple applications and app-sub-functions. 3D images may modernize the look. Similar to Mac OS X, the taskbar is to radically transform: Microsoft apparently plays with the idea of it centered – so centrally – at the bottom – order.
How likely are the new features?
That frequently used apps on the Start menu appear particularly striking, contrary to the design language of Windows 10: The software menu is here – as with Windows 8.1 – remain particularly slim and clearly. For that reason have newly installed applications no powers to lay in this area. New App sizes could actually give it; It should be noted, however, that even with Windows 10 compared with Version 8.1 no other form factors have been added. Legal unlikely are radical design changes: From 3D representations Microsoft took starting with Windows 8 more distance. However, it is not completely inconceivable that there is correspondingly more airy controls. Especially with System Version 10 demonstrated the developers to take user needs seriously – they brought back the transparent lists Start menu. Would the group the task bar position centered, the safe would find favor with design-oriented users. The overview and penetrability could suffer, however. Also in view of the fact that the text of the upper window edges (Caption) with Windows 10 starts left back instead centered as with Windows 8, is likely to be no longer an issue a centrally positioned taskbar once. Anyway, the Start menu of the exclusive screenshots strongly reminiscent Start Menu Reviver; the program is already running under Windows 10 and Windows 8 also provides for fresh air.
Update or new system?
Probably brings Windows 10.1 is not enough changes to justify the sale of the drilled operating system. It is rather to be expected that it comes out as a free update for Windows 10 users. This fits with Microsoft’s new update strategy: system-improvements to get the users whenever they are ready. Before they go through two test phases in Windows Insider program – ie on PCs and notebooks running permanently or temporarily a Windows 10 Beta is underway. Since Windows 10 updates are no longer selectively select able; you take what Microsoft set before the customer. Perhaps Red stone appears in the form of smaller update appetizers: thanks to which Microsoft could initially the resonance of the masses to wait and would not scare with large changes. Whatever Red stone also brings: ULTIMATE TECH NEWS remains on the ball!
