Windows 10: The 'Next Chapter' live and all you need to know

Tomorrow at 9 am PT, Microsoft is set to unveil the next evolution of Windows 10. The event will be live streamed, which you can watch here (we'll embed it) along with our simulcast live blog.

I landed here in Washington this morning, and I'll be at the event all day tomorrow. Our crack team back home will be taking care of the backend, press-releases and breaking other stories. Here is all you need to know!

Where to watch?

Additionally, or as a backup, you can bookmark Microsoft's web page where the live stream will originate:

For international users, you can click this handy link, which will then show you what time the event takes place in your local time zone.

How long?

Microsoft's event should be at least 60 minutes but some reports are putting it upwards of a full two-hours. Either way, budget your time! If you miss anything, Windows Central will continually post the major news bits throughout the day.

What to expect?

Well, besides more details about Windows 10, everything is fair game. Rumors are at an all-time high right now, with Windows Phone, Xbox, PC gaming, Consume Previews, and maybe even some hardware all possibly on the table.

Honestly, this is one of the best kept secrets of recent months so you'll just have to wait and see!

What happens after?

After the live stream wraps, the media here will be checking out a showcase. Later in the afternoon, we'll be attending private sessions with Microsoft – no cameras allowed – to presumably deep-dive into whatever was announced. As such, besides recapitulating the day's earlier news, more information should come out during these sessions.

Where to talk about it?

Use our comments here, comments on the main Live Blog, or of course, our forums where we even have a Windows 10 waiting room! Lots of people are chatting, so join in!

Who's ready for tomorrow! Sound off on what you expect and hope to hear!
