Microsoft reveals the next OS--Windows 10

The curtain was partially peeled back today for a glimpse of the future of Windows. The name was a surprise, what else did we learn?

Microsoft gave everyone a peek, and a time table of sorts, to the new Windows OS today. According to various rumors, the new edition was to be called Windows 9, or Threshold, or just plain Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone and christened it Windows 10, emphasising that this is not just an upgrade, but a whole new way of doing business.
