Windows 10 Event Beamed Live at Noon From Microsoft's HQ

By    |   Wednesday, 21 Jan 2015 10:15 AM

Microsoft will unveil Windows 10 with a live announcement and blogging event on Wednesday at noon Eastern time from its headquarters campus in  Redmond, Washington.

"You'll hear directly from senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group, including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer, who will talk about the Windows 10 consumer experience – continuing the story we began in September," said the Window website.

Expectations for the Windows announcement varied among tech experts.

"Apparently Windows 8 was such a flop that Microsoft decided it'd take a whole extra version number to clear the Windows name," wrote Rafe Neddleman of Yahoo! Tech. "Either that or it's playing version number catch-up with Apple, whose desktop operating system is also called version 10: OS X."

"The biggest visible change we're expecting is an interface that no longer dumps laptop and desktop users into 'Tile World,' as our David Pogue calls it," wrote Neddleman. "People accustomed to, and happy with, a keyboard-and-mouse interface will now be able to live in that environment full time."

Tom Warren of The Verge wrote that he is expecting to hear Microsoft's plans of moving toward what is called a cross-platform app.

"Speaking of universal applications, Wednesday is Microsoft's biggest chance to show the world why you would want a single app that can run across a phone, tablet, PC, and TV," wrote Warren. "Microsoft will detail that story more heavily at its Build developer conference in April, but examples of powerful universal apps will be key to the company's vision for the future of software."

"Microsoft will also focus heavily on the single Store experience of Windows 10, which allows end users to buy a single app across phone, tablet, and PC, and for developers to more easily create just one application for one app store," Warren continued.
