Windows 10 Will Be On The Xbox One

It looks like Windows 10 will be making its way to the Xbox One. From the way the article makes it sound, it is going to be more than just a Win 8 to Win 10 kernel update. Thanks to OEM for the heads up on this one.

"One of the monthly updates that you'll get on [Xbox One] is gonna change from the Windows 8 kernel that's in there now to the Windows 10 kernel," Microsoft Xbox lead Phil Spencer said during a group interview in Redmond, Washington, yesterday. "I know a lot of people are excited about things like Cortana and other features they see on Windows 10. Obviously getting on the Windows 10 kernel -- well, it's not really the kernel -- but Windows 10 OS inside of Xbox One is an important first step to unlock a lot of what [Microsoft's Joe Belfiore] showed."
