After months of waiting, the launch of Windows 8 is imminent, and Microsoft is streaming its event in New York City. We're there for any news, but if you want to see the whole thing yourself, you can watch on Microsoft's site here. It's just started, and we expect to see not only fanfare for the new touch-focused version of Windows but some new showcased apps. If you're interested in the OS itself, it's going to be generally available on Friday, October 26th.

Update: Now that it's gone through Windows 8, Microsoft is officially launching the Surface tablet, which will also be available tomorrow. You can watch at the same livestream link above.
