The unholy trinity will become the One Thing

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has promised that Microsoft will unite the three versions of its operating system will become one.

In the coming year, Microsoft will streamline the next version of Windows from three Operating Systems into one, single converged Operating System for screens of all sizes and also Microsoft will unify its stores, commerce and developer platforms to drive a more coherent user experiences and a broader developer opportunity, he promised.

Nadella said that Microsoft is approaching the Windows OS business with a bold, challenger mindset and pushing both the product and business model forward. He highlighted the fact that Windows licenses are free for any OEM building a device less than nine inches and also added a low-cost Windows offering with Bing integration for OEMs. These changes are expected to bring Windows tablets and clamshells at lower price points. Microsoft is also optimistic about first-party hardware given the early signs from Surface Pro 3’s performance in market.

Satya said that Microsoft will be sharing more about its next major wave of Windows enhancements in the coming months.
