Microsoft will talk about 'the next version' of Windows at Computex tonight

Microsoft's Computex keynote today was all about the software giant's expansive portfolio of current offerings, but it started off with a pretty awesome promise: a partner preview event is coming tomorrow (Taipei time) where we'll get to hear about the next version of Windows. Steve Guggenheimer, the man who dished up this delicious tease, naturally had nothing more to say on the matter, but we do know that said event kicks off at 10AM local time, making it 10PM ET (on Wednesday!) in the US. Whichever side of the Pacific you're on, however, rest assured that we'll have all the details that Microsoft is willing to disclose about its future as soon as they become available.

Update: Remember, there's a remote chance that we might see Windows Next (aka, Windows 8) revealed a few hours earlier when Steven Sinofsky hits the stage at the D9 conference Wednesday afternoon. Naturally, we'll be bringing the conversation with Microsoft's president of Windows to you live, just as soon as things kick off at 3:15PM PT (6:15PM ET).
