It looks as though Microsoft has resurrected their WinHec conference, and with the agenda having already gone live, the event would open up new insights into Windows 10, which would be Microsoft’s upcoming unified operating system version. Apparently, in one of the sessions that are being held at WinHec would be known as ‘Enabling New USB Connectivity Scenarios in Windows 10’.
If one were to check it out further, it would point to a crystal clear fact that Windows 10 will undoubtedly support USB 3.1 Type-C as well as USB Dual Role – which is a good thing, of course. The session’s description goes something like this :-
Windows 10 introduces support for USB Dual Role and Type-C, which will enable new wired connectivity scenarios such a phone interacting with USB peripherals, or laptops connecting to an external display using the USB Type-C connector. This session will go into detail on how Windows supports these technologies and what you need to do to enable them.
Such support should not be met with a skeptical or raised eyebrow, since Microsoft has normally done a good job when it comes to supporting the most recent USB standard soon after it has been announced. Are you looking forward to toying around on your tablet, smartphone, notebook and desktop on a single operating system?
