Microsoft and Intel have released two versions of the operating system for the first time in more than five years, and they’re bringing it to the desktop with support for both desktop and mobile devices.
But it’s a major step forward for Microsoft and the technology industry that’s been at the center of a bitter feud since Microsoft announced its intention to merge with Intel in 2016.
Intel is trying to build a PC platform that can run Windows on tablets, laptops, desktops and smartphones.
Intel is making a big push in the PC space, launching its own smartphones, tablets and gaming platforms, and Microsoft has been slow to embrace it.
On Tuesday, Microsoft announced that it will release Windows 8.1 on the desktop, and it will also roll out the OS to a limited number of mobile devices through Windows 10 Mobile, its mobile operating system.
The desktop version will arrive first, with the mobile version coming later.
Microsoft will also launch Windows 8 on PCs and Macs later this year, and the company is also working to release Windows 10 on those devices in the future.
Microsoft has long pushed for desktop and laptop users to be able to run its software together on the same computer, but Intel has pushed back on that position, saying it’s not practical for all PCs and laptops to be connected.
Microsoft is also trying to make Windows a viable alternative to Apple’s iOS and Android devices, which it says offer the best mobile experiences.
Windows 8.x, which is available for Windows PCs, tablets, and phones, has a few major differences from its predecessors.
Microsoft has moved away from a full-blown Windows desktop in favor of a mobile OS that has more control over what apps can run on the phone and tablet, and Windows 8 has moved more of the focus to mobile.
Microsoft said in a blog post Tuesday that the new operating system will bring “great productivity benefits” to PCs and other devices, including better battery life, more space, and better battery management.
The OS will also offer better productivity by supporting the latest cloud services and using more memory for apps, the company said.
It’s not clear how many users will see these changes, and there’s no clear indication how much of the OS is already in use.
But it’s clear that Microsoft’s focus on productivity is being realized in its new OS, which has been the subject of intense criticism for its perceived slow pace in moving software to the mobile platform.
On the desktop side of things, Microsoft is making it easier for developers to create apps that run on Windows, including a new version of its Visual Studio IDE that has support for iOS and other mobile devices, and new Microsoft Office for Mac and Windows applications.
The company is now also allowing people to share their code in the Visual Studio code editor on Microsoft’s Visual Studio Online, which was previously only available to developers in the company’s cloud services.
It’s unclear how many developers are using the new tool.
Microsoft’s Visual C++, Visual C# and Visual Basic languages have been added to the company ‘s Windows Insider program, and developers are able to try out the new tools for free for the next few weeks.
Windows 10 Mobile has been around for a few months now, and in that time Microsoft has launched several new apps that make use of its new platform.
It is still unclear how much Windows 10 will support Mobile in the near future, and if developers can still use the mobile-only features on Windows 10.
But Microsoft’s move to offer Windows 10 as a free download on mobile devices is likely to have a significant impact on the industry.
Windows 10 has long been a popular mobile OS, and some developers have been reluctant to move their apps to the platform.
But as more developers begin to move to Windows 10, they’ll be able use the platform in ways that are not possible on mobile.
