Windows 9 Beta Launches Early October
A matter of days, then. A shuffle of a few days here and there. There were voices claiming that the Windows 9 beta was on track for a late September arrival.
Now however that timeframe has been bumped to early October.
Microsoft’s press event is still set for September 30, where the company will discuss the new features coming to its flagship operating platform. But if you were holding out to getting the download links the same day, well, brace for some not so pleasing news.
There is talk that the technical preview — early beta, whatever you want to call it — of Windows 9 will launch sometime in October, not September 30 as was previously predicted.
Redmond apparently wants to wait a few days before unveiling the new OS publicly. Then again, the way thing are going, a move like this is to be expected.
Although no exact timeframe is given, the first week of October is said to be the chosen date.
What also this means is that the journalists and media personalities that attend the event will not be able to try out the new version on their own until at least another few days. Microsoft probably wants to use this extra time to apply some further polish to Windows 9 beta.
An agreeable proposition, don’t you think?
