Windows 9 Preview Will Be Available For Download Later This Year

/ 2 years ago


Microsoft’s Windows 9 “Threshold” operating system, which will replace the current Windows 8.X OS, is rumoured to be made available in public preview form this fall. As we’ve mentioned already Windows 9 will get a massive overhaul to tailor the OS for two different experiences: a desktop experience and a touch-based experience. The Microsoft concept start-menu (shown above) which Microsoft displayed at BUILD 2014 this year could make an appearance in Windows 9 for desktop users. With the preview arriving this fall the final version of Windows 9 could still be as far away as Q3 2015. Remember the first preview of Windows 8 arrived in September 2011 and the RTM version didn’t ship until August 2012 with the consumer version shipping October 2012, more than 12 months after the first preview.
