Microsoft is all set to preview their newest operating system, Windows 10, tonight. With the software giant from Redmond, making their biggest announcement, Satya Nadella has a lot to deliver today for the PC market as it gets back on their feet after stumbling with Windows 8.
So we don’t have a Windows 9 happening which makes this a symbolizing leap ahead and also make gave credence to the dreadful myth that Windows churns a bad OS with each alternative version. ( Think Windows ME, Vista, and 8)
What to expect today
Back in September, Microsoft already gave us a preview of what Windows 10 would look like offering a lot of business solutions, today’s preview is devoted towards the consumer.
The technical preview of Windows 10 looks set to be a sleeker faster Windows 7.
The bigger picture however, is how the OS would work across all platforms, desktops, tablets phones or smart appliances. We already know that Microsoft’s voice assistant will play a pivotal role, so a voice operated OS seems likely. Microsoft also has a new browser in the works, codenamed Spartan and whether or not that replaces Internet Explorer remains to be seen.
Great to have Xbox/Gaming in a Windows event today. Make sure you stay watching until the end of show, cool stuff there. #Windows10

Xbox and PC gaming also looks to have some spotlight tonight, could this be the beginning of cross platform support with Windows 10 ? It could give an incentive to bridge the console and PC market but given Xbox’s track record for exclusivities, that may be wishful thinking.
You can watch the livestream here at 9 PM UAE Time.
