Microsoft to unveil Windows 10 consumer experience Microsoft has set a date to show off the consumer experience of Windows 10, ahead of its scheduled launch in Autumn 2015.
The Redmond giant has alerted media and Windows enthusiasts that it will hold an event at its campus on Wednesday, January 21 to show off the consumer side of its upcoming Windows 10 operating system.

Among those in attendance that we will hear from will be senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer. Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella will also show up to say some words.

The event will be broadcast live from the Redmond campus and details of a webcast will be provided in due time.

Windows 10 represents something of a reboot for Microsoft as it fights to recover from a disastrous Windows 8 era, and from declining interest in Windows Phone. It will also take another stab at gaining ground in smartphones and tablets, an area in which its competitors Apple and Google have dominated for years.

So set your reminders for January 21, and let's see what Microsoft has in store for us all next.

I've been using the Windows 10 Technical Preview for a few days. I'll be sticking with Windows 7 Pro as my primary OS. I don't care for the direction they're taking Windows. I don't need an "App Store" on my PC, and don't want to see those metro tiles anywhere, not anywhere at all, period.

Most all of the Windows 8.1 drivers work fine on 10, btw. No issues at all with using them.

Clearly you're not a tech. Maybe a little savvy......MAYBE but you ain't no tech.

If you don't like what MS brings out then STFU and dev your own OS.

I'm a previewer too but a network engineer looking to implement to my team once released.

This OS is tight! A nice merge between 7/8. I love Windows 8 and so many bitch and bitch about one tiny little detail........the "tiles" or START screen. Tiles can be removed in 10 so what's the problem??

There ISN'T one as Skeil99 is complaining just to complain.

Anyone that closes their mind to new things based solely upon 1 tiny thing (tiles in this case) is a goof.

Relax, accept and stay open-minded about new stuff and perhaps less stress will befall you.


Win 8 is FAST, friendly in many respects (unfriendly in some too) but all-in-all is a great leap to speeding up and slimming down the bulky OS.

Apps rock! You deal in apps on your cell so DEAL WITH THEM IN THIS TOO!

You like the crap you like, and others like what they like. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I suggest you check your lame attitude at the door.

"Ain't no tech" -ROFL.. Nice.
