Liveblog: Microsoft's Windows 10 event

Liveblog: Microsoft's Windows 10 event
And here we are, ready to give Microsoft yet another shot at actually impressing us with its mobile software. The Windows 10 event the Redmond company is going to hold to day will, naturally, be centered around the latest info it has to share about the upcoming Windows 10, and hopefully that includes some details here or there with regards to the platform's mobile portion as well.

What do we know about the so-called Windows 10 (mobile) so far? Well, pretty much next to nothing, besides the possibility of it being even more closely related to its desktop sibling. But, we'll see. Chances are that Microsoft will be feeling guilty enough after what it did to us with Windows 8, so it'll probably be good enough to shed some light on the matter.

Welcome to our liveblog! Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show as it unfolds. Yeah, it's that simple!

EVENT START TIME: 9 AM PT | 10 AM MT | 11 AM CT | 12 PM ET | 5 PM GMT | 6 PM CET

You won't. It will be a mix between windows 8.1 and windows 7.

MS better include the option to make tiles transparent on the home screen... having a background is great but if you can't see past those huge tiles, it would be taking a step in the opposite direction.

Yes. Didn't they have this already with the 8.1 update? "The transparent live tiles showing a static background image". Even I don't get why they have a background image, if we cannot even look past the tiles!

Give us some new phones, dammit. I'm tired of waiting. All we see is cr*p low end devices (which I'd have no problem with, if Microsoft released a high end device or two, to give to those who want the best of the best WP has to offer).

Basically you can stream any xbox game to a windows 10 pc/tablet (no mention of phones, but I would imagine they can). Like the PS version. However what is more huge is the cross online play between pc and xbox, Finally.

Really expected a lot more with the mobile version. But apart from that, Windows 10 sure got me excited - to wait for the official release!!

Beyond bored and uninspired by Microsofts mobile showing, all very 'meh', nothing new.
