Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Wants Its Throne Back

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), once the undisputed king in the world of operating systems in terms of total users, has been knocked off its throne. Can the Silicon Valley veteran regain its top spot?

According to Morgan Brennan in a report for CNBC, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is working hard just to do that.

The CNBC reporter notes that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) hopes to regain its title as the maker of the world’s most used operating system starting with the release of its newest operating system, Windows 10. Brennan says that the company hopes to get a billion users to use Windows 10.

Microsoft is working on making Windows 10 not only specifically for desktop computers but also for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. In fact, it is officially ditching a separate name for the smartphone and tablet-optimized version of Windows in favor of just calling its next operating system Windows 10. In the past, the software giant called its mobile OS different names such as Windows Mobile, Windows Phone and Windows RT.

Brennan notes, however, that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android is the world’s most popular operating system with over 500 million users.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) hopes to up the ante against Google by making some big changes including opening up its operating systems so that developers can port apps built for Apple or Android devices to Windows, Brennan says.

Meanwhile, Microsoft also announced the official name of a new web browser called Edge on the first day of its annual software conference, Brennan reports. The browser promises to be faster and more useful than the old Internet Explorer that has been a Microsoft mainstay for two decades, she says.

“The bottom line, Microsoft is working hard to regain the crown as the world’s most popular operating system,” Brennan says.
