Windows 10 Cloud may be the star of Microsoft’s upcoming event

The Windows 10 Creators Update may be out today, but Microsoft has plenty more planned for its latest and greatest operating system, including a stripped down version we could meet next month.

Microsoft is planning a spring event, as you may know, and the matchless Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet says software called Windows 10 Cloud will be the star of this particular show.

Despite what the name strongly suggests, Windows 10 Cloud isn't related to the cloud, or at least not as much as you would think. 

Instead, this flavor of Windows 10 is essentially a pared down version of the full-bodied OS. It's core function will be running Unified Windows Platform apps downloaded via the Windows Store, according to the report. Think of Windows 10 Cloud Edition as a reincarnation of Windows RT.

Radical new hardware, then, won't be the main attraction at the event, which is apparently codenamed Bespin. Star Wars fans may remember Bespin as the name of a fictional planet in the series, home to Cloud City. Eh, eh?

Foley's sources say the Bespin event is slated for early May event, so stay tuned as we find out more.
