>> Hello everybody, and welcome to this lecture.
00:00
In this lecture we're going to be covering
00:00
the topic of Windows 10.
00:00
Let's go ahead, and get started.
00:00
Windows 10 is an operating system that
00:00
actually runs on multiple different types of devices,
00:00
not just your desktops and laptops.
00:00
With this iteration of Windows,
00:00
they actually included a version that
00:00
can run on your tablets and your phones.
00:00
The operating system was released in July of 2015,
00:00
and has been the current operating system ever since.
00:00
According to Microsoft, this is
00:00
the last operating system that they're going to release.
00:00
They're just going to continue to develop it from here
00:00
and they now call it more of
00:00
a service instead of a product.
00:00
Back when Microsoft first launched Windows 10,
00:00
it was provided as
00:00
an upgrade to the existing operating systems.
00:00
If you ran Windows 7 or Windows 8,
00:00
you were able to go ahead
00:00
and upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10,
00:00
and it was a free upgrade, at least for the first year.
00:00
Now you do have to pay for it.
00:00
Windows 10 editions include Windows 10 Home,
00:00
Windows 10 Pro,
00:00
Windows 10 Enterprise, and Education.
00:00
Let's go ahead and talk a little bit about those.
00:00
Windows 10 Home,
00:00
is the home user version of the operating system,
00:00
just like with Home Premium and with
00:00
the Home version of Windows 8,
00:00
you will get everything that's
00:00
standard for the home users.
00:00
You'll get your medium player,
00:00
you'll get a lot of the features that you
00:00
need in order to operate on a day-to-day basis,
00:00
such as your anti-virus.
00:00
You have a personal assistant stuff for
00:00
your operating system to search for files,
00:00
and applications, things like that.
00:00
It does integrate with a Microsoft account.
00:00
Just like with Windows 8,
00:00
you had to create a Microsoft account in order to use
00:00
your operating system and you
00:00
can still use that feature with Windows 10.
00:00
With Windows 10 Pro,
00:00
this is the business edition of
00:00
the operating system and includes RDS,
00:00
which is the Remote Desktop Services,
00:00
allows IT and other people
00:00
to remote into your computer if you
00:00
need them to perform any support operations necessary.
00:00
This operating system does include a BitLocker,
00:00
which is like a full disk encryption,
00:00
so locks everything down and it
00:00
can join a Windows domain,
00:00
so you can use it within your Enterprise.
00:00
Speaking of Enterprise,
00:00
Windows 10 Education and Enterprise,
00:00
is another addition to other editions of Windows 10.
00:00
There's a lot of similarities,
00:00
but there are different by a few different features.
00:00
With both of these, you'll need
00:00
to purchase their licenses and a volume,
00:00
so you do get a slight discount.
00:00
Usually it's like on a contract basis thing
00:00
and you can issue at the licenses for multiple devices.
00:00
This is usually for schools,
00:00
or for large organizations that have hundreds of
00:00
devices that need help managing those license keys,
00:00
making sure that they are wasting their money.
00:00
They can go ahead and order accordingly.
00:00
They use versions to include AppLocker,
00:00
which prevents certain applications from running,
00:00
so you can down the security on those devices,
00:00
especially if your organization owns them,
00:00
and it includes BranchCache,
00:00
which is like a remote site file caching service.
00:00
It has granular user experience
00:00
controls so you can remove certain features,
00:00
like they need the applications
00:00
like if you need the operating system to run as a kiosk,
00:00
or very specific use and you don't
00:00
want the users to explore other applications,
00:00
or be able to escape what you have
00:00
intended that it workstation to be for,
00:00
you can use the granular user experience
00:00
controls to control what the users able to access.
00:00
Windows 10 hardware requirements are as follows.
00:00
For the CPU, you need a one gigahertz processor.
00:00
You need one gigs of RAM, or two gigs of RAM,
00:00
depending if you're going at 32 or
00:00
64 bit operating system,
00:00
and you need a graphics card that can support
00:00
Direct X9 graphics with WDDM.
00:00
That about wraps up this lecture,
00:00
I will see you guys in the next one.
