Microsoft will be announcing the Windows 9 OS on this year’s Build 2014 developer conference in this April and it will be released to the market in April 2015, according to the popular Windows blog, Paul Thurrott’s winsupersite.
Previously codenamed as “Threshold”, it was said to be bringing the unification of all three OS into one – Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Xbox OS. But, this details haven’t been revealed yet. Though, Microsoft will be expecting it to identify as next Windows 7 compared it to the Windows Vista, that means the Windows 8 is depicted as Vista here.
In next Build 2014 conference, Microsoft is reported to bring software updates, may be a service pack called as Update 1 or GDR1 Update for Windows 8.1 systems. This time the update is expected to come via same-old Windows Update, instead of updating via Windows Store.
Meanwhile, Microsoft reportedly not started the development of the Windows 9 and it will be releasing the 3 milestones release for the operating system, which may be called as Beta, Release Candidate or Preview. This year’s Build conference will be focused on Xbox One and Windows Phone platforms, apart from the new OS announcement.
