NEW DELHI - Windows 10, Microsoft’s latest version of its flagship operating system, has started rolling out to PCs around the world, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The company's last version of Windows – Windows 8 – was an unmitigated disaster. By trying to artificially bolt on a touchscreen interface to the traditional desktop, Microsoft alienated its core users – the millions of people around the world who use their computer with a traditional keyboard and mouse.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s attempt to fix its wrongs. It has brought back the Start Menu, instead of having its colourful live tiles take over people’s entire screens when they click the Start button; touchscreen apps run side-by-side with traditional desktop apps in windows on the desktop instead of full screen

In addition to the aforementioned features, there are thousands of tweaks to improve desktop security and performance. Most importantly, Windows 10 is a free upgrade to anyone running Windows 7 or 8 on their computers.
