Windows "Threshold" : Microsoft wants to call all it's Operating System as " Windows " !

Microsoft has announced that it would be merging all it's operating system into one to provide same experience with multiple devices. They are calling this update as "Threshold" and it will see daylight in late 2014 or early 2015.

The naming convention in Windows is going to see a major change as all the OS developed will be called Windows but the features will be different based on the type of devices you use. It is meant to provide similar experience in all the devices without any confusion. Microsoft might merge Windows RT and Windows Phone into one because both are mobile operating system which is completely built for touch. This change will provide more apps and a lot of new features to all the mobile and tablet users in one single UI. 

Redmond’s purpose, on the other hand, is to offer a unified experience across all devices, so expect a common app store and other similarities that will be based on powerful synchronization services and cloud tech.
