WZor, who happens to be a well-known source when it comes to Microsoft software leaks, did tweet out a response concerning speculation that was made concerning the launch of Windows 9, where the tweet claimed that development of the operating system could arrive at the release to manufacturing (RTM) stage by the time October 21st, 2014. Earlier on, Microsoft claimed to be working on the ability to roll out Windows 9 by April 2015, where it will be accompanied by a trio of milestone builds before arriving RTM.
In the latest piece of information from WZor, this would mean it invalidate the earlier leaked roadmap completely. Windows 9 is tipped to advance the Modern UI even further as “Metro 2.0,” where it is meant to be a whole lot more mature and usable. There were also whispers going through the grapevine that Microsoft will no longer be making pre-alpha builds available to developers at the BUILD 2014 event which is happening in April, so we do hope to hear more about the future operating system right from the proverbial horse’s mouth by then.
Do you think that there will be a pretty big jump from Windows 8 all the way to Windows 9, and will many folks make the upgrade or migration?
