At Build, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls the update the 'next generation
of Windows,' and promises to share more details soon.
During his keynote at Tuesday's Build developer conference, CEO Satya
Nadella teased that major changes are in store for the operating system.
“Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the
past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and
creators. I've been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I'm
incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows.'' [...]
Nadella didn't reveal much else, except to tease that the updated OS will
benefit software developers everywhere. “Our promise to you is this: we
will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome
every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to
build and distribute and monetize applications. We look forward to sharing
more very soon,'' Nadella said.
The comment might be connected to how Redmond is reportedly developing a new
version of the Microsoft App Store for Windows 10. According to Windows
Central, the company is refreshing the store with a new interface while also
relaxing the rules on how developers can publish apps on the platform. This
includes giving developers the option to use any third-party payment
solution to charge customers.
This is supposed to be good news? As it's aimed to benefit developers? And
inflicted on everyone?
