    January 21st is just around the corner, so the real question is what do we, Microsoft community, want to see there.

    Windows 10
    Cortana on the desktop
    Playing Xbox One/360 games on the PC
    New Spartan web browser
    Improved Windows Store design
    Improved apps design
    Implemented Continuum and track pad gestures
    Improved Action Center and Snap Assist UI and Multiple Desktop UI
    A new Surface announced
    Windows 10 for Mobile
    Improved Live Tiles UI
    Horizontal display
    Improved Action Center
    Group settings
    Software and Firmware updates by Microsoft and not from carriers
    A new Lumia announced
    Xbox
    Dashboard UI Improvement
    VR announcement
    New games announced
    Office
    Office for Windows Phone announcement

    I really really doubt any new hardware will be announced
    The speakers for the event are all from the software side of MS and none from the devices division

    Whatever they do they need to find something to ADD some excitement to their offerings. Something, hell anything. Its like funeral at Microsoft. Maybe they should bring Mr. B back. At least he raised hell. LOL

    How about they actually stop sitting on their hands, stop yapping and actually release this supposed holy grail of operating systems? Too much talk while the competition solidifies their position (with the help of Microsoft themselves, the irony) while the Windows platform declines.

    Microsoft should change the app design guidelines and make the UI more similar to Android. For example, Facebook, OneDrive and the Health app are using UI elements more commonly seen in the other platforms, breaking with the traditional WP UI guidelines.

    The fact that WP's UI is so different increase the cost of porting apps from other platforms. Adding new UI element that are equivalent to Android's UI elements would make it very easy. Maybe even an automatic converter could transform an Android UI to the equivalent WP code.

    If Universal apps fail, the only option would be adding support for Android apps, this change would help with that transition.

    Actually. The OneDrive app on Windows Phone shows what the future of the Metro UI is. The look is pretty similar to Windows 10 UI guidelines

    I think this should just be a given. :)

    I'd really like to see a new flagship phone announced though. Perhaps the 940 or 1530......
