It’s no secret that Microsoft is hard at work with the next big release of Windows. We’ve already seen leaks of Windows 9 across the interweb. On Tuesday (30 September) in San Francisco, the Redmont giant is set to name and detail its latest Windows release. Microsoft accidently listed a “Windows TH” on a preview site earlier.
Windows TH is widely believed to stand for “Windows Threshold”, a codename that may eventually become Windows 9.
The Windows TH name is likely to be a work in progress name, and some sources have suggested that Microsoft may even name the next release as just “Windows.” The preview site has since been removed.
A new, more streamlined Windows is in line with Microsoft’s mobile- and cloud-centric focus championed by new head honcho Satya Nadella.
As seen in leaks, the next version of Windows reintroduces the Start Menu plus Metro-style apps on the desktop, virtual desktop and Cortana integration.
If Windows 8 was a new beginning and transition, the next version of Windows looks to properly unify the entire Windows experience across PC, XBox One, tablet and Windows Phone.
Stay tuned on 30 September.
