Microsoft is revealing more details about its next operating system "Windows 10" as it holds Microsoft Build - its largest developer conference of the year in San Francisco. CCTV America's Mark Niu filed this report in San Francisco.

Highlights:

  • Microsoft seeks to make Windows 10 easier to use than the disappointing Windows 8 — by incorporating familiar start and lock screens, for example– and combining it with its latest technology like Cortana – its personal intelligent assistant.
  • But Microsoft stressed that Windows 10 would allow universal apps to work seamlessly across phones, tablets, PC’s, game systems and ‘internet of things’ devices.
  • Microsoft emphasized that its services work on non-Windows devices, too. These are versions of Microsoft Office working across Android and Apple products. Microsoft also announced the name of their upcoming internet browser — Microsoft Edge.
