Windows 9 Announcement Set For September 30
A preview version of the upcoming OS was expected to be unveiled next month, and we now have a set date for the Windows 9 announcement. September 30.
The Verge is talking about the public debut of Windows 9, and claims that Microsoft is preparing a press event on this date, which is very likely going to be the first time we hear the software titan talk about this new operating system in detail.
Interestingly, Redmond is not planning to disclose the name of this new operating system at the event.
Even more interestingly, the name is very much certain to be Windows 9, according to sources close to the matter. So unless Microsoft has a surprise or two when it comes to naming the product, this strategy does not make much sense.
What does name sense is that the public beta version of the new OS is reportedly set for launch during the event, or the very next day. The company will also allow everyone access to those early bits.
And instead of releasing new builds of Windows 9 every time they are ready, Microsoft also plans to keep the original testing version up to date with new features as and when they are completed — could be a rather nice change of pace.
File this as a rumor for now, albeit from a very reliable source. But don’t be surprised if Redmond changes the event date depending on to how development on Windows 9 is coming along.
You know, by a day or two. Or even a week.
