At Microsoft’s Windows 10 event in New York City today, the company showed the world what’s coming next for Windows. It’s called the “Creators Update.”
The Creators Update is scheduled to ship in early 2017, and it packs in a bunch of new features including a new emphasis on helping everyone create, share, and play around with 3D models. “We’re used to 2D emails, documents, spreadsheets and slides,” said head of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices group Terry Meyerson. “The next generation is growing up with 3D right from the start. Last month, I attended MineCon. I watched thousands of kids interacting with their 3D Minecraft world, editing their worlds as easily as we scroll through a document.”
There’s a lot to go over, so let’s just jump right in and start with something everyone is familiar with.
