Microsoft have announced the launch of Windows 10, which seems to have bypassed 9 as the last version was Windows 8.

The software will run on a wide range of devices, from phones and tablets to PCs and Xbox games consoles, with applications sold from a single store.

The Start Menu is back too, so you can cease the rioting at last.

In addition to offering a list of the user's favourite applications, the menu also brings up resizeable tiles - similar to those featured in Windows 8's touch-centric interface on PCs and tablets.

The Start Menu will now feature both a list of apps and live tiles.

The company said the facility was intended to make the software seem familiar to both users of Windows 8 and Windows 7, and generally stop everyone saying 'what on Earth are Microsoft playing at?'

Apparently businesses wait about a year after a new operating system's release before offering it to workers, to give IT staff a chance to get to grips with the new technologies involved, but it has been nearly two years since Windows 8 first went on sale and adoption is still low.

Windows 10 Microsoft said Windows 10 would work on devices with 4in (10.2cm) screens and 80in screens and, for developers, Microsoft have updated command prompt, which is beyond thrilling.

Well let's hope they've learnt their lesson.
