BBC News - Microsoft unveils Windows 10 system with Start Menu
Microsoft has disclosed the first details of Windows 10 - its next operating system (OS).
The name is a surprise bearing in mind it represents a jump from the last version - Windows 8.
The software will run on a wide range of devices from smartphones and tablets to PCs and Xbox games consoles, with applications sold from a single store.
It also marks the return of the Start Menu, which had been removed from Windows 8.
In addition to offering a list of the user's favourite applications, the menu also brings up resizable tiles - similar to those featured in Windows 8's touch-centric interface - on PCs and tablets.
