Microsoft is aiming to make a "technology preview" of Windows 9, aka Threshold, available to anyone interested this fall.
Microsoft plans to do more than just reintroduce a Start menu to make Windows 9, aka "Threshold," more appealing to Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 users.
Microsoft is working to include new features in the next version of Windows specifically aimed at desktop users. Here's the latest on its plan.
On Tuesday, Microsoft will offer details about the next version of Windows. Much of what really matters, says ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, lies in how Redmond is building, testing and updating the OS.
Microsoft is expected to reveal details of Windows 9 at its Build conference in April this year, with an expected release in April 2015.
Microsoft's Windows team may share its high-level plans for its next-generation Windows "Threshold" release at its upcoming Build developers show, according to a new sourced report.
Redmond's wave of spring 2015 updates to its various Windows-based platforms has a code name: Threshold.
Microsoft is to bring Xbox One, Windows and Windows Phone closer together under the codename Threshold.
In 2018, the devices will cross another threshold when more than half of all mobile phones worldwide will be smartphones -- up from 38 percent this year.
The company's chief operating officer elaborates on plans announced in September, saying a "developer preview" will come out the middle of next year.
