Redmond: Microsoft will showcase Windows 10 at an event on Wednesday to offer a wider glimpse of the next version of Windows.
The company is planning to show off new features of its flagship operating system – and possibly an improved Internet browser and more uses for Microsoft’s voice-controlled digital assistant, Cortana. Executives will also demonstrate how the new Windows is designed to provide a more consistent experience and a common platform for software apps on different devices, from personal computers to tablets, smartphones and even the company’s Xbox gaming console.
The company has invited journalists and industry analysts to Wednesday’s event at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington. CEO Satya Nadella plans to talk about the new system and the company’s battle to stay relevant in a world where PC users are increasingly shifting to mobile gadgets and Internet apps.
