Let's take a first look at the Windows 10 Technical Preview
Hey I'm Nate with CNET and today we're taking our very first look at the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
Microsoft has made an early build of the next version of Windows available and it's shaping up to be something pretty cool.
But there are some important things to keep in mind.
First this is a technical preview, so it's not even at the beta stage yet.
And second, it's still an early build so there are lots of bugs and glitches, like that, lurking around.
So you aren't gonna want to make this, you know, your main PC operating system.
The first thing you'll notice about Windows 10 is the desktop.
The logo's a little different, but it otherwise looks and feels a lot like Windows 8, or 7, or earlier.
But then you click the Start button and get a start menu instead of the full screen modern UI from Windows 8. Windows 10 still supports all the full screen apps that Windows 8 introduced, but they no longer have to be full screen.
You can drag them about and pin them alongside all the noble apps you use.
And then there's my favorite feature, Virtual Desktops.
True, these have been available on Macs and Linux PC's for a long time.
But this is the first time they've been available on Windows without having to buy some third-party app.
Now that was a really brief introduction to the Windows X technical preview, but there's a lot more here to discover.
So, you're gonna wanna check back later as we.
Dive in a bit deeper and check out new things as they creep up.
And be sure to read my full write-up on CNet.
I'm Nate Ralph.
