Windows 10 For Xbox?

Microsoft has announced that the next big update for Windows 10, which will be the Anniversary update, will bring Windows 10 for Xbox to the table.  That's right, Xbox users will be able to install Windows 10 on their gaming platform within the next coming days.  The update is also said to include a merger of the Xbox Store and the Windows Store.  The new version of the "Shop" application will be able to show users their purchased games and applications all under one library.  This move is part of a wider philosophy on behalf of Microsoft to develop and enhance sharing applications across devices and platforms.  Exactly how it is going to operate still remains unclear, and whether the update will come with a Dashboard restructuring is not yet known.  Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirms that the gaming platform will not be compromised by enterprise-centric and desktop-focused applications.   Spencer clarified this sentiment by saying, "We won't see people using Excel on the Xbox, but Microsoft is making it easier to port experiences from PC over to Xbox where they make sense.  We'll treat gaming on Windows 10 with the same passion as we've put into the Xbox console."  Xbox games can already be streamed to Windows 10 PCs, an ability that was added earlier in the year.  If you'd like to know how to do stream your Xbox games to a Windows 10 PC, visit the official Windows 10 for Xbox page here.  Some games, such as Fable Legends for instance, are already being made and released for both PC and Xbox platforms.  These games feature cross-platform functionality.  For now, stay tuned and fire up your consoles every couple of days as the update is reportedly coming down the pipe within days.  I know I'm excited and can't wait to get Windows 10 on my Xbox One at home!


Free Windows 10 Upgrade Offer "To End Soon"

Microsoft is letting customers know that the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 for free is closing. After July 29th, users will have to pay to upgrade. If you are currently running Windows 7 or later on your PC, you may have noticed the offers to upgrade for free over the last few months. Don't let it pass you by - there is no reason to put it off any longer after this announcement. Not to mention, Microsoft is no longer supporting any version of Windows that isn't Windows 10. When technical support is ended on an operating system, that operating system is open to more security vulnerabilities, viruses, and other malicious adware and malware.
