After a week full of rumors mostly about smartphones, it’s time to change the pace a bit and talk about one of the most popular operating systems in the world, which will be updated to a new version. Yes, after a short life span of 8, completed by 8.1, Microsoft announced that they’re planning to announce the new Windows 9 on September 30, during a big press event.
Ok, don’t get that enthusiastic, as next month will only bring a developer preview, but it will be enough to make an idea about what we will see at Windows 9.
Codenamed “Threshold”, the new operating system will bring a couple of changes, including a mini Start Menu, a missing Charms bar, and, if we take some rumors for granted, it should also have an early version of the virtual assistant Cortana.
Even though the press event will only focus on the main features on Windows 9, while the company is planning to release it later this year, we’re still waiting for the event. Also, according to some sources, Microsoft is also working on a new mobile Windows version, which is said to combine Windows RT and WP 8.1. Basically these guys are trying to make their mobile devices’ as easy to use as a desktop or laptop.
Stay tuned, as we’ll keep you updated with this subject. Until then, what new features do you expect from Windows 9?
