We've got Daniel Rubino on the ground at the event and we'll be live blogging the whole thing as it happens. Things kick off at 9 a.m. local time, which is 12 p.m. Eastern and 5 p.m. in London. You'll find the liveblog below, So join us, it's going to be a good one.
So, today's the day. It's been a long time coming for a lot of people, but at 9 a.m. PT Microsoft will kick off proceedings and start talking about what's next for Windows 10. That could mean desktop, it could mean phones, it could mean tablets, Xbox, Windows gaming, literally anything.
Solid leaks have been minimal and Windows 10 has been one of the tech industry's better guarded secrets of recent times. And we like that, there are too many events where we're already too 'in-the-know' about what's going to happen before it happens. Today has the chance to blow our minds completely. So, what do you want to see the most?

Frederic - Evil Strikes Back is a sequel installment to the original Windows Phone game Frederic. The game has the legendary composer Frederic Chopin being resurrected from the grave to prove that his music can still be a chart topper.
