Microsoft to unveil Windows 10 'consumer experience' on Jan 21

— 4:32 PM on December 11, 2014

When it premiered Windows 10 in September, Microsoft focused on the operating system's desktop interface. The company has now set a date for the premiere of Windows 10's "consumer experience"—meaning, presumably, the interface we'll see on tablets and convertibles.

On Wednesday, January 21st – we will be holding an event here on Microsoft’s Redmond campus where we will talk about the next chapter of Windows 10. You’ll hear directly from senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer who will talk about the Windows 10 consumer experience – continuing the story we began in September. You’ll also hear from our CEO Satya Nadella as well.

Microsoft plans to stream the event, so we can all get our first look at the next iteration of Metro the Modern UI interface live. I'm not as excited as I was about the desktop debut, but I can't say I'm not curious. Here's hoping the changes will actually make me want a Windows tablet.

Last we heard, Windows 10 was on schedule for release in the late summer or early fall. You can already test the operating system's desktop UI by grabbing the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
