At its annual Build conference for developers, Microsoft today unveiled the latest Windows 10 operating system. “Windows 10 is now a new version of Windows but a new generation of Windows,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella exclaimed to introduce the new operating system.

With Windows 10, Microsoft is enabling developers to make a single app that would work on all devices including smartphones, tablets, PC and everything else.

“From the Raspberry Pie to Holographic computers, it is one unified platform for developers,” Nadella added.

Microsoft is expecting over a billion devices running on Windows 10 in the next two to three years. “Google’s Android KitKat is running on 500 million devices, Apple’s iOS 8 is on even less. Windows 10 will be the largest single OS version,” said Terry Myerson, executive vice president, operating systems group, Microsoft.
