"Fluent Design enables the creation of more expressive and engaging experiences that work continuously across devices-from large screens, to small screens, to no screen-all in a way that will drive higher engagement and love for your apps", Kevin Gallo, Corporate Vice President of Windows Developer, Microsoft wrote in a blog post. It includes My People app, New Timeline feature, Story Remix app, Fluent Design Language and much more. But we're hard-pressed to see things stopping there; it seems inevitable that at some point, Windows will offer the ability to run Linux server software as one of its features.

Microsoft Cortana Skills technology, which provides voice command capabilities now used only in the United States, is paving the way for the development of new devices.

With the announcement of the intelligent chat-bots in Skype, Bing and Cortana, Microsoft also released the Azure apps for the iOS and Android platform. It basically contains 5 elements of design system: Light, Depth, Motion, Material, Scale.

Windows Insiders can test the Fall Update now. This is weekly is highly focused on the Build 2017 event.

"For example, all of the UWP apps in the store, all of the centennial apps will be available on Windows 10 on ARM". You can see some of those (potato quality) screenshots below.

Created to ensure that "experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS and Android devices, Fluent Design and Microsoft Graph will add a variety of new capabilities via the Fall Creators Update". Ahead of the update's release, Microsoft is offering developers the chance to pre-order the Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition, to be delivered this summer, from either Acer ($299) or HP ($329). Yet embracing Apple's music and video platform is clearly a response to Microsoft's falling stature.

In March, Android topped the worldwide OS Internet usage market share with 37.93%, which put it marginally ahead of Windows (37.91%) for the first time. And not just that, Windows 10 on ARM will also provide you with full support for running x86 Win32 apps.

Apple to bring the iTunes to the Windows Store soon. The company has only added a touch of the new Fluent Design System to the apps in Windows 10, but the company still has a long way to go and implementing the new design system at the core of the Windows 10 (aka the shell) will take time. Windows Server 2016 will also receive a feature update aligned with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The company is now experimenting with elements that'll ship with the second wave - including the 3D depth effect you saw in the video above, along with things like 360 media playback, conscious headers, speech, and spatial sound.
