    Default Windows 9 unveiling set for September 30, report says

    Microsoft has been rumored to be working on the launch of a new preview version of Windows 9 toward the end of September or early October.

    Windows 8 might soon be replaced by Threshold.
    Lance Whitney/CNET

    Microsoft's Windows 9, the successor to the widely panned Windows 8, could be shown off at the end of next month, according to a new report.


    Microsoft is planning to hold a special press event on September 30 to show off Windows 9, The Verge is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans. The date is currently "tentative," according to the report.


    It's not yet clear whether Windows 9 will actually be known as Windows 9. The operating system is currently code-named Windows Threshold, though it's highly likely that Microsoft will keep its numbering scheme with the next platform.


    Last week, CNET sister site ZDNet reported that Microsoft is planning to launch a "technology preview" of Threshold at the end of September or early October. The report from Mary Jo Foley indicated that users would be able to try out the operating system, but would need to have software updates automatically downloaded to the platform each month.


    Whenever Threshold makes an appearance, it's expected to come with a wide range of improvements, including a "mini" Smart Menu, separate windows for Metro-style applications running on the desktop, and support for virtual desktops.


    According to The Verge's sources, Microsoft will be showcasing some of those improvements and new features at the event on September 30. The operating system should launch as a beta preview soon thereafter.


    In a statement to CNET, Microsoft was succinct in its response to the news, saying only that it has "nothing to share" at this point.

    I'll wait a month or two and see how it goes from there. There's bound to be bugs that need to be worked out, after all, according to Microsoft, Win 10 is what Win 8 was supposed to be.

    I'll download it as scheduled, but I don't think install it immediately after, and I'm sure in one thing, I'll not use the permanent online connection (MS account).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Did they introduce that on Win 8.1? Somewhere along the way, MS changed the username/password pair on my Laptop to match that ridiculous Windows Live service, which drives me nuts.

    I'll install it on my laptops, but my main desktop will stay Linux Mint. I'm seriously concerned about the direction Microsoft is taking these days. Unfortunately, if I ever want to play any AAA titles, I'm stuck with Windows and STEAM, both of which I loathe.

    LOL

    Nope Bill, this is just a resurrected thread from way back before 9 became 10. Vinman was just using the (old) thread to discuss changing over...
