Microsoft China confirm Windows 9 name
So this is usually what happens in a new Microsoft OS cycle.
Microsoft usually inadvertently confirm an OS name earlier than MSFT marketing would probably like.
Steve Ballmer did it with Windows 8 and now it seems that Microsoft China have accidentally done this with Windows 9.
In a posting on Weibo today, Microsoft China seemed to confirm that Windows 9 was actually the name of the next Microsoft Operating System (duh!).
They asked (translated), “Microsoft’s latest OS Windows 9 is coming soon, do you think the start menu at the left bottom will make a come back?”
A Windows 9 mocked up logo accompanied the post before it was quickly removed but not before Chinese site CNBETA got the image.
Windows 9 is the name. Coming soon.
