Top 10 Releases around 2010

by Tech Toggle on September 9, 2009

2010 will surely be an awesome year. It seems to be the year in which we are going to see lot of giant releases from giant organizations. Starting from operating systems like Windows 7 to the real time strategy games like StarCraft II . Therefore next year will bring lot of cool products in the marketplace. Lets see few promising and eagerly awaited releases dated in 2010.

Starting from the big news obviously. Two big releases expected are Windows 7 and later in 2010 , Google chrome OS.

Windows 7 :


Bill Gates earlier said that the next operating system of the company will be shipped as soon as 2009 and the current release dates of windows 7 seem to justify the owner’s statement. The current release date is october 22 2009.

Windows 7 is almost out of  development stages (codename BlackComb). It is expected by the customers that windows 7 will provide lighter and slimmer profile as compared to Vista.

All in all, Windows 7 is shaping up well. It’s a far more modest release than Vista was, but it’s no worse for that. The new OS introduces a compelling combination of welcome innovations and much-needed polish, and that’s exactly what Microsoft needs right now. Vista’s foundation was solid, and Windows 7 just makes it better.

Windows 7 free trial is now available for tech pros at no charge and is limited for 90 days of usage. You can download the free trial of enterprise edition from here as soon as it is available.

Google Chrome OS:


This july google officially announced that they are working on a project named Google chrome OS. Though it is intended to be installed on netbooks but still people are waiting to see when google will open source the code and release it for use.

The main features of Google Chrome OS are speed, security and simplicity and the fact that it will be very lightweight makes me more curious about it. The user interface is minimal and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And according to the Google guys, as they did for the Google Chrome browser, they are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don’t have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates.

Here is a nice little video preview of the google chrome OS framework.

Apple Multi-Touch Tablet:

Microsoft office 2010 will be a big release because of its revolutionary features and online support. Office 2010 Web apps will be competing against google Docs which is the current leader in the online version of documentation. It will be interesting to see what features does Web apps provide ( See this article Office Vs Google Docs) . We are sure that the desktop version of the Office will be better and more rich.

Office 2010 will be as to Office 2007 as Windows 7 is to Windows Vista in my point of view.

Grand Theft Auto (The ballad of Gay Tony) rumored(PS3):


Gamespy is claiming that Rockstar has confirmed that a new game of GTA series is under development stages. We all have played GTA vice city and San Andries which were quite good. So Rockstar knows that their most paying game is GTA and not any other game. It is expected that the game will be ready in the next year october or so.

StarCraft II:

Star Craft is no doubt one of the best games , so it is not a surprise that the real time strategy fans were not happy when Star Craft II was announced. Blizzard has improved the graphics and increased the units but left the huge all out battles unchanged . T0o often game developers try to rebuild video games but why do they rebuild perfection?
