Microsoft set to unveil Windows 9 on September 30th

A special press event is scheduled for Microsoft where it will announce the Windows 9 platform. While talking to The Verge, some sources have revealed that the tech giant is mostly likely going to keep the date fixed to September 30th. At the event, Microsoft is going to share some details regarding the upcoming changes to Windows as part of a release codenamed "Threshold."

Though the date can be subject to change since nothing has been announced officially as yet but one thing is for sure that the Threshold is already under the development stage and Microsoft will announce it on September 30th or later. Some reports have also suggested that a preview version is going to be released by the end of next month or October.

This preview look would be like a trailer, giving some idea to the developers who will have a first look at the new mini Start Menu in Windows 9, alongside the removal of the Charms bar feature accompanied with several changes made to the UI.

The software developer is currently busy compiling builds of Threshold ready for the preview that include an early version of Cortana but there is nothing to guarantee whether this particular feature will make its way to the early technology preview or not. According to the general consensus, the Threshold is officially going to be called the Windows 9 but we can’t bet any money on whether Microsoft will give any name on this early press event or not.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
