There has been much speculation about the next Windows iteration recently, we have seen some details being leaked out as well and according to a new report published today the date of the announcement has also been set. Apparently Microsoft is going to announce Windows 9 on September 30th. At the press preview event the company is likely going to introduce changes that have been made to this iteration of its operation system.
The Verge claims to have heard from sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans that Redmond is going to show off the next major Windows release next month. It does add that there is a possibility of the date being changed, but Microsoft reportedly has plans to release a preview version of the software to developers on September 30th or a short time after that.
Some of the new features that Microsoft is expected to highlight include return of the Start menu, removal of the Charms bar, support for virtual desktops and perhaps even Cortana integration within the OS. The scribe says it is not known for sure if Cortana integration will be present in the technology preview that will be released to developers next month.
As far as Microsoft is concerned it has neither confirmed nor denied this report so do take this with a grain of salt for now. If the announcement is due next month then we should get a hint when the invites roll out.
