Windows 9 Preview Expected Next Month
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
We now for certain now that Microsoft are working hard on the next iteration of their operating system. Windows 8 was great overall, but a PR disaster for the company and with Windows 7 being a pretty solid operating system, people had no good reason to update. Naturally they’re now pegging their hopes on Windows 9 and to be honest, so am I, it’s time for a chance and hopefully this time around it will be for the better.
Now we are hearing reports that an early build of the OS will be heading for public preview in September or early October at the latest. The OS still has a lot of development to go trough, so this will likely be testing changes to core elements, with many more features being added through extensive updates over the coming months.
The OS is said to feature a new mini Start Menue, “metro-style” apps that float in separate windows on the desktop, virtual desktops, the charms bar is gone and the OS should even contain an early version of their Cortana service.
Thank you The Verge for providing us with this information.
