Windows 9, Microsoft’s next major Windows version and successor of the “not-so-popular” Windows 8, is set to be announced and unveiled to the public in a scheduled Windows event on September 30, 2014 in San Francisco, CA.
Today, Microsoft has just started sending out email invites to different media people, developers, and VIPs for the upcoming Windows event which mainly says “Join us to hear about what’s next for Windows and the enterprise”. Basing on this, it’s almost clear about Microsoft’s intention to reveal new and exciting updates regarding both personal and enterprise Windows operating systems.
Windows 9: What to expect?
The Windows 9 event will be both led by Microsoft’s Corporate VP for Operating Systems – Joe Belfiore, and Executive VP of Operating Systems, Terry Myerson for detailed discussions and updates about the next Windows version.
Also, any unveiling events will not be complete without a technical preview or demo to showcase the major changes and improvements, which Microsoft is also expected to show off during that day. Only little has been know about the detailed changes for the Windows 9 but a couple of online leaks have surfaced suggesting a couple of UI refinements and the redesigned Start Menu.
Here’s a leaked demo on what to expect with Windows 9:
Windows 9 is expected to be official released to the market somewhere between quarter 1 or 2 next year, 2015.
