Windows 9: One OS to run on all devices 

In 2015 there will be no confusion between Windows operating systems. Windows 9 will be the one OS to run on all devices .
Business Insider reports that CEO Satya Nadella said on the company’s FQ4 earnings conference call that an upcoming version of Windows will merge all existing Windows versions, becoming an “operating system that covers all screen sizes.”

Nothing like Apple, which thinks unification of iOS and OS X would be a waste of energy, Microsoft desires for one single Windows operating system to be accessible to all its device users, whether they’re Windows Phone owners, Xbox fans, or depend on a Windows PC for work or play.

Nadella says “In the year ahead, we are investing in ways that will ensure our device OS and first party hardware aligned to our core.”

Microsoft already publicized at Build 2014 in early April that it will let developers build apps that will work across devices, including Windows Phones, Windows PC and Xbox consoles, but it appears that the company is ready to go a mile ahead.

“We will streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system for screens of all sizes, we will unify our stores, commerce and developer platforms to drive a more coherent user experience and a broader developer opportunity,” he added.

On the other hand, this doesn’t that signify Microsoft will have a simpler way of trading Windows products to users.

Nadella says “Our SKU strategy will remain by segment, we will have multiple SKUs for enterprises, we will have for OEM, we will have for end-users,”

 “And so we will – be disclosing and talking about our SKUs as we get further along, but my statement was more to do with how we are bringing teams together to approach Windows as one ecosystem very differently than we ourselves have done in the past.”He added.
