Microsoft to host education event May 2

Minimal details have been provided regarding the "Learn What's Next" event which is being held on May 2 in the New York City.

Microsoft is holding a major event on May 2, but we have nearly no idea what's coming.

The plans are in line with earlier reporting on CNET's sister site, ZDNet, which said last month that the company's Surface Book 2 tablet won't be announced at the USA spring unveiling, as Microsoft has done in the past. It's also possible Microsoft may take this opportunity to reveal the hardware design of its upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, just ahead of its E3 event in June. Joe Belfiore the man behind the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile is back to work at Microsoft.

Putting these together, we'd expect to see the official launch of Windows 10 Cloud, along with a system to run it on-perhaps something along the lines of a Surface 4, or a pure laptop iteration of Surface Book.

It is time to wave Goodbye to Windows Vista
To find out if you're still using Windows Vista , open your " Start " menu, and type " winver " into the search box. However experts are warning that many Vista-era PCs may not have the necessary specs to run a newer Microsoft OS.

A new rumor is making the rounds today that suggests that the spring event might in fact focus more on a new version of Windows 10 than hardware. Stay tune to Windows Latest for more update. But according source and some reports he could be the man behind the Windows Cloud.

This January, the company announced Intune for Education which is a cloud based application and device management service which offers easy setup and management in shared learning environments.

What isn't made clear however is whether Microsoft will unveil a dedicated hardware for Windows Cloud. The operating system may help power a new generation of low-priced laptop computers that could compete aggressively against Chromebooks.

As for the Surface Pro 5, it might be announced at the spring event.
