    AFAIK the conference doesn't kick of until 10AM Pacific Daylight Time, for us UK people i think that's around 6PM, for Canada i think that's 1PM.

    EDIT: If you want to follow the event live apparently the Verge is going to be doing a live stream when it kicks off here.

    Wow, they really do want to distance themselves from Windows 8 don't they.
    Or was Windows 8.1 actually Windows 9 in disguise. :D

    Yes distancing by 1.9. That's 90% more distancing than usual. I think it's as good as an admission of what a cluster **** windows 8 was.

    Confirmed Windows 10 will be the next mobile OS as-well


    Q: You mentioned screens ranging from 4 inches to 80 inches. Is Windows 10 the next version of the phone operating system too?

    A: Yes.
    A (Befliore): We're trying to blend the experience across PCs, tablets. The best way to think of it, it will be a natural step forward from the Windows 8.1 model.
    It will not have a desktop (next version of Windows Phone)

    Summary.

    Will be called Windows 10

    "We're delivering one application platform."

    "One store, one way for applications to be discovered, purchased, and updated across all of these devices."

    Evaluation will be tomorrow

    Will be compatible with all traditional management systems in use today

    Return of the start menu

    All Windows 7 users will get a familiar experience

    There's a me tile on the Start Menu, pinned apps and options to shutdown and restart.

    can resize the tiles on the Start Menu, change its size.

    Universal search from the Start menu and web results

    "As users start using these apps they should just feel familiar and work in a way you'd expect with a mouse and keyboard."

    The traditional Windows 7 Snap View works in Windows 10 with classic and universal apps

    "In Windows 8 when users launched a modern app, it sort of had a different environment."
    "We don't want that duality, we want users on PCs with mice and keyboards to have their familiar UI."

    "Task view" is the new button on the taskbar.

    There's multiple desktops at the bottom of the interface, and when you launch task view it shows all the apps that are currently open.

    There's a new "Snap Assist" UI at the side where you can grab apps from multiple desktops.

    You can now paste in directories into command prompt with Ctrl+V.

    The Windows Charm bar is still here

    "In Windows 10, when you swipe in from the left, you get a task view."

    The task view is larger with buttons that are more touch friendly

    Mode switches between based on input method - touch ui or desktop mode with taksbar permanent

    "Starting tomorrow we're going to launch our Windows Insider Program."

    "Technical Preview build for laptops and desktops."

    Technical Preview build for servers will follow after that.

    "We're planning to share more than we ever have before, frankly earlier than we have before."

    Windows 10 shipping "later in the year" in 2015.

    Trying to blend experiences across multiple platforms

    We're building a platform that scales, from small devices all the way up to Azure.

    Part of the reason we organized the way we did, is there will be champions of every device type. It was intentional to put together the PC, tablet, phone. Similar capabilities, but at the end they differ.

    We're building it at all the same time. We don't have all the answers about how it will release right now.

    We're building Windows 10 to support the apps that are out there already (asked about current apps in windows store)

    we're building the software to update vast majority of devices out there. (asked about WinRT)

    There's these different devices in the Windows world. One of the things we offer for enterprises is a mission critical level of support. Microsoft will support them for a long time. We have ways to support our products for well north of 10 years.

    Start Menu resizing looks very good. Finally a Start Menu that looks practical!
