Microsoft is aiming to make available a technology preview of Windows Threshold around late September or early October.

Microsoft seems to be paying close attention to its Windows "Threshold" operating system and a technology preview of this operating system would be given by late September or early October as suggested by numerous sources. As far as the serviceability of Microsoft is concerned, we can see how those who will install this tech preview will have to agree to getting monthly updates. Microsoft is bringing its next Windows 9 in the form of this Threshold which is expected to arrive in spring next year. And quite clearly we are looking forward to a bunch of new features which are going to improve the Windows platform at a great degree and will even enhance usability on non-touch devices. So we can see that Windows would once again be evolved for even those who prefer using mice and keyboards alongside touch.

We have also received a couple of leaks pertaining to this new Windows platform and looks like we will be waiting for something very interesting. Parts of these new features are going to be a new "mini" Start Menu; windowed Metro-Style applications that can run on the Desktop; virtual desktops; and the elimination of the Charms bar which first debuted with the Windows 8. There are also speculations that Cortana integration would also be made possible with Windows Threshold. So far the executives at Microsoft have refrained from making any comment on the Threshold and so we haven’t gotten our hands on any official information telling us when it will be available and how much it would cost.

We all remember how things went with the Windows 8 and how the company had to overcome three major milestones before the OS was finally out in October 2012. We first met the developer preview of Windows 8 which was released by Microsoft on September 13, 2011 and then came in the ‘consumer’ preview which landed on February 29, 2012. And then finally the OS was open for manufacturing from August 1, 2012.

However, this time it appears that the team behind the new OS is following a rapid schedule for the release and in this case we can easily put our money on a time span of five to six months between any Threshold milestone builds Microsoft plans to make available externally. Some sources have also been suggesting that Microsoft was initially planning to deliver the public preview of Threshold available and making it available for anyone interested toward the end of calendar 2014. But there is nothing to confirm if such a plan is still on their agenda or not.
