Danger calendars or awkwardness of the Windows team? While the Office division held a conference to promote several new features around hybrid work and Microsoft Viva, the division Surface stole the show by announcing his next conference on October 12th. Enough to divert media attention from Viva announcements, while this Surface meeting coincides with a Windows 11 “Moment”, but above all will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series. And we expect a few surprises for this anniversary.
