The new OS is expected to be released in Spring next year and will bring touch friendly versions of Excel and Powerpoint

So Microsoft would finally be willing to let go of the old Windows platform and soon it will be showering us with the details of its next major Windows release this week at Build 2014 as reported by ZDNet reports. The Windows 9 has been codenamed as the Threshold and it will be laucnhing next year in the Spring of 2015 and since this is huge, the company is quite eager to reveal details on this one already.

We understand that the full features and details will not be revealed to us at this time and we dont even have a specific launch date as yet but as the report tell us that the officials are expected to “discuss at a high level the company’s goal to create a new Windows 9 SKU that would run on Windows Phones, ARM-based Windows tablets/PCs, phablets and other kinds of devices.”

 

Some of you might be disappointed to learn that there will be no typical desktop for the standard Win32 apps in fact the desktop will regularly be updated from the Windows Store. The first touch versions of Excel and Powerpoint will also be introduced by Microsoft at the Build and they will be more user friendly now; something that Microsoft has done for the Word on iOS.
