Microsoft has confirmed that it will be holding an official event on September 30th to officially introduce Windows 9. Windows 9 will take over from Windows 8 that has not been that successful to say the least.
Microsoft did not exactly say that the event will be about Windows 9 but the invite sent out to media houses reads “Join us to hear what’s next for Windows and the enterprise” indicating that it will be about the next version of its popular OS. Joe Belfiore Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of Operating Systems will lead the event.
Microsoft is expected to add a number of features to Windows 9 including a new Start menu, a virtual desktops feature, and a Notification Center. Windows 9 is also expected to unify Windows from phone to desktops and change the UI focus for different devices. Windows 9 will not be available in the market immediately and users will have to wait till early 2015 to get their hands on this new piece of software.
During the event, Microsoft will most likely show off a “Technical Preview” of the next major version of Windows to help developers and enterprise customers evaluate the changes the company has made.
