Microsoft to Guide through Consumer Aspects of Windows 10 at the Upcoming Event in January

December 15, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Windows 10 is finally shedding the dermis of development and getting down to consumer terms with an event on January.

Microsoft has announced that an event will be held on January 21 at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington, in which more of its upcoming OS can be expected to be unveiled.

The new OS from Microsoft was unveiled back in September, in which it dwelt on some of its highlights on a small note. It has also launched the technical preview for the OS.

However, with less than a year for the full release, a more enhanced insight of the OS can be assumed to be brought up at the upcoming event.


Until now it has only revealed the tablet and PC side of the OS and hasn’t dealt with the Xbox version of Windows 10. Some of the highlights are a fresh interface, Continuum, revamped Start Menu, redesigned Cortana digital assistance, etc. However, much of its consumer aspects have still been kept covered.

Microsoft is expected to take a big leap with its new OS that would come unified for all of its platforms –PC, smartphones and Xbox.

Taking cue from Windows 8, which was less received than Windows 7, Microsoft has been working hard to erase past shorcomings in their new OS. That includes the rectification of touch-screen shortcomings which pulled back its smoother run on non-touchscreen devices.

Windows 10 consumer experience will be discussed at the upcoming event by Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer of their Operating Systems Group.

Microsoft has also planned live webcasts, and blogs to take consumers through the OS before the event takes place at Redmond on January 21.
