Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Microsoft offers look at Windows 10

Update 11:10 a.m.:

Microsoft, at an event in San Francisco Tuesday, revealed an early look at Windows 10, the official name it’s giving to the next release of its operating system.

Here’s my colleague Brier Dudley’s live blog post on the event. He writes:

With Windows 10, Microsoft will offer a single platform on which to develop applications for phones, tablets, laptops, desktops and wall-sized PCs. It’s not one size fits all, and instead will vary depending on the hardware on which it’s running.

Among the changes, Windows 10 will indeed bring back a more traditional Start menu, though the menu will also include the newer-style live tiles introduced with Windows 8.

And Windows Store apps  that, with Windows 8, had taken up the entire screen, will now launch in windows the same way that traditional desktop programs do. Those apps can be resized and moved around, and will have title bars at the top, like traditional windows.

Microsoft, in a bid to woo corporate customers turned off by Windows 8, emphasized features important to enterprises. Security, identity and information features are built into Windows 10, the company said in a blog post, and management and deployment has been simplified.

A technical preview of Windows 10 will be available to early testers on Oct. 1. The broader release will probably take place in mid-2015, after Microsoft’s Build developer conference in April, according to Dudley.

 

From earlier:

Microsoft is hosting an event Tuesday in San Francisco giving an early look at its next version of Windows.

The company has not yet said what the official name of this next Windows release will be but media oulets and blogs have been referring to it as “Windows 9.”

My colleague, Brier Dudley, is at the event in San Francisco and will be blogging about it starting at about 10 a.m.

Here’s my earlier story on what’s at stake with the release.
