After teasing the next generation of Windows during Build last week, Microsoft announced that it’ll be officially unveiling the new version of its operating system on June 24th at 11AM Eastern. The company has begun sending out invites to media, and it’s revealed that CEO Satya Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay will be headlining the event.
At Build, Nadella said he’s been testing the new OS for the past few months, and he added “We will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications.” That’s likely referring to rumors of an update Windows Store, which could make it easier for developers to push their apps out to consumers.
The event announcement follows news that Microsoft killed development of Windows 10X, an OS variant that was initially meant for dual-screen devices. Last year, the company shifted 10X focus to single screen devices to potentially create a stronger competitor to Chrome OS. Now, Microsoft plans to bring some 10X features into Windows 10 proper.
