What to expect from Microsoft’s next Windows 10 event

After taking big swings with Windows 8 and 8.1 — how big a miss they were is open to interpretation — Microsoft’s trying to redefine how we work with c


I believe the event might actually be today (21 January 2015). OK, I will admit, while I love my iOS products, even now I still can’t bring myself to go all the way with Apple products when it comes to my main laptop. I just can’t! No matter what research I’ve done between features and what I use on my laptop, I still rest on the side of the Microsoft PC. Now, Microsoft has been a bit disappointing in recent years, and it’s widely known that Win 8 and 8.1 have had…issues. I’m usually an early adopter of a new OS, but not this time. I’m still running on Win 7. So, I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing what Win 10 is going to offer. I think I’m going to be in the market for a new laptop this year (mine is almost 5 years old), so the timing is good in that respect. I’m really hoping that while Win 10 adapts to mobile, it still retains something for laptop/desktop use as well. 


My husband just got a new MS Surface 3 Pro at work, so hopefully I’ll get a chance to play with it a little more than what I have in a Microsoft store. I don’t know that I’ll get a Surface, as they are rather expensive, and I can get more features that I want on a regular laptop for less money. But this Win 10 release is supposed to be BIG. 


Will Microsoft win me over again, as well as others? We’ll see…
