Responding to a tweet yesterday, Paul Spencer (Microsoft’s Head of Xbox) indicated that Windows 10 on Xbox One will be coming at some point after the anticipated summer release of the PC version of Microsoft’s latest operating system.
@dave125norco It will be post-summer.

Unfortunately “post-summer” doesn’t necessarily even mean this year, but you would think if the Windows 10 Beta on Xbox One was slated for 2016 Spencer would have indicated that.
Microsoft has mentioned a few times that the Windows 10 release would be staggered and come to the PC first, followed by other devices like Windows Phones, HoloLens, and of course the Xbox One. Microsoft is developing their newest operating system on one code base which will provide a seamless experience across different devices. One of the biggest features as it relates to gaming is that Windows 10 brings a lot of Xbox functionality including Game DVR to the desktop with the Xbox One app. Microsoft is also working on functionality that will allow you to play your Xbox One games on your PC, as well as cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One gamers, and cross-buy – purchase content once and play it on all your Windows devices.
