This doesn’t seem too long ago when Microsoft felt like a disaster. I mean, don’t get me a wrong. They always held the largest market share in personal computing. But as we progressed towards a cloud-obsessed era of technology, Microsoft seemed to hit a wall, unsure of what its next step should be. Its cloud-based products were subpar, the Windows Phone — while being surprisingly stable — lacked the ecosystem it needed to gain traction, and it didn’t look like Microsoft had any idea what it wanted to do since the launch of Windows 8.
Fortunately, that all will change. Microsoft now has a clear focus of what it wants to do and apparently how it wants to do too. Instead of being self-centric, Microsoft is now opening up gates to its software and services to users from other platforms, such as Android and iOS. It’s most popular suite of professional software is now completely free on the web.
And then there is Windows 10. The memorable point where all the confusions end and the future begins. This is the future of Windows. This is the future of Microsoft. This is where Microsoft becomes cool again.
