Go into your account settings and you can change it. When you started up your MSI laptop, when you go to the create a new account option, that's where the "use a local account" was under. It's confusing, so I hope it's handled better in 10.
On Wednesday, January 21st we will be holding an event here on Microsofts Redmond campus where we will talk about the next chapter of Windows 10. Youll hear directly from senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer who will talk about the Windows 10 consumer experience continuing the story we began in September. Youll also hear from our CEO Satya Nadella as well. Were going to live webcast the event so mark your calendars! As we get closer to the event in January, watch for another blog post from me on where to tune-in and watch the live webcast. As you can imagine, were pretty stoked to show you whats next for Windows 10!
It was supposed to be a temporary project name only IIRC, they just got used to it I suppose.
It doesn't sound weird to me since I barely know the Halo lore, and I like software using a real name rather than obscure codenames. Especially if it's a talking software.
Assuming they wait until Gamescom in August to announce the price drop and redesign with the OS being updated whenever the slim would release then I wouldn't call it too early by any means. That would be close to two years from launch and I think it would be feasible and smart business. Especially if they manage to bring a limited edition Halo 5 console with the redesign
Windows 10 will run across an incredibly broad set of devices from the Internet of Things, to servers in enterprise datacenters worldwide. Some of these devices have 4 inch screens some have 80 inch screens and some dont have screens at all. Some of these devices you hold in your hand, others are ten feet away. Some of these devices you primarily use touch/pen, others mouse/keyboard, others controller/gesture and some devices can switch between input types.
It'd make Kinect so much more useful if I could say "Xbox (or Cortana) play Forza" and have it respond with a bunch of options that I can pick from instead of having to say "Xbox play Forza Motorsport 4".
Wasn't this already confirmed a while ago? They're putting her on basically everything they make at this point. I got a chance to play around with the voice commands a while back, they work really damn well.
Anyway, calling it now: Xbox to turn into a prebuilt living room PC. Steam on X1 by the end of 2015.
Expecting them to continue the "Universal App" discussion... hence why the leaders of the ecosystems are all there. So, build your app on Windows 8, and share the same code between WP and Xbox. Probably going ot have a lot of Universal apps/games for preview members to try out. Khan Academy released this week on XB1, I'm expectign A LOT more universal apps and games to follow and release on the XB1 as part of this preview.
