    Windows 10: What's in the January preview release?


    In a rapid-fire live demo in Redmond yesterday, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore showed off the latest features of Windows 10 to a room full of press and analysts and an online audience.
    The January consumer preview release will be delivered as an automatic update to members of the Windows 10 Insiders program "in the next week," Microsoft executives said, with a preview of Windows 10 for phones coming in February.
    But don't expect the impending preview to include all the Windows 10 features that were highlighted in Belfiore's live demo. During his presentation, Belfiore repeatedly cautioned that these new features will roll out "over the next three, four, five months."

    So what will be in the next preview and what's still missing? I spent some hands-on time with this build on some demo machines after the event with an eye to looking at what's in and what's still missing.
    Cortana is fully integrated into current builds, and it's not a gimmick.
    You can use the "Hey Cortana" trigger to find files, set reminders, or look something up on the Web.
    Take away the cheerful voice and Cortana still works fine using a conventional search box with input from a keyboard. Type a question or a few keywords and the results are a smart list that aggregates results from local and network files, the Web, and cloud services.

    What's missing?

    In particular, the new Project Spartan browser won't be included, and it might not make its debut next month, either. That means there'll be no touch-friendly way to browse the Web in this preview, nor is there a way to easily share content from Web pages or save links to the built-in Reading List.
    More waiting

    You are aware that Win10 is not a finished product - right?

    Sorry Jeff, I just couldn't resist.

    I meant, the finished version of Spartan. Sorry for not being more clear about that point.

    No worries, I think everyone understood. I have a tendency to see / read things with a sense of humor.

    One time a co-worker sent out an eMail that read
    I'm looking for a manual. It was last seen in Brian's cubicle, which has disappeared.

    I sent a reply asking if Brian was ok
    ... you see, it sounded to me as if the cubicle disappeared, not the manual.

    I'm not always serious
