For Microsoft, Windows 10 isn’t just another release of a piece of software to run your desktop PC. It’s a bid to claim a greater share of the smartphone and tablet markets.
As part of that effort, Microsoft is hoping that it can make it easier for developers to write applications that run on Windows 10 across device types.
Today, the company is showing off what’s possible with its “universal” apps, releasing preview versions of Office designed to work well regardless of whether the user is on a tablet, smartphone or PC. Those who have downloaded early versions of Windows 10 can now grab preview versions of Word, PowerPoint and Excel to test.
Not a Windows 10 preview user but want to be? Microsoft is still offering the chance to try it out.
