This follows earlier news that the OS will also support MKV and HEVC. Some fans may think these changes don’t matter, but they are indicative of a Microsoft more open to using open source tools that compete with theirs. It may also mean more focused efforts to make development easier on the OS, but most of all, it will mean that less hassle for gamers and general consumers who adopt the OS.
Do you think this should be taken as a sign of an easier Windows 10 for devs to play around with? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
