Microsoft have announced the next version of Windows and in rather unorthodox fashion have skipped a number.
Windows 10 was briefly unveiled at an event in San Francisco on Tuesday, where onlookers were able to catch a glimpse of the new OS's Start Menu.
further details will be revealed early in 2015 with a general release date a few months later.
Microsoft claim that Windows 10 will offer “the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the benefits that exist in Windows 8”, their main focus being on attracting businesses to the new platform following the slow uptake of Windows 8 following widespread criticism of its interface.
While retaining the touch-screen functions on compatible devices, Microsoft claim version 10 will create a more unified experience for users across different devices.
