Windows 9 (likely to be called just ‘Windows’) is the next iteration of Microsoft’s highly successful operating system. This being said, its predecessor, Windows 8, has been somewhat less than spectacular. Many users complained it was hard to use, and poorly optimised for the bulk of desktop business computers. Compounding this, Microsoft took away the Start menu, one of the mainstays of its operating system, in favour a separate screen, causing anger amongst the majority of users.

Knowing this backlash, Microsoft has been proceeding full steam ahead with a new version of the operating system, Windows 9. This new operating system, which will probably be just called ‘Windows’, has been the subject of numerous leaks over the past weeks, and now finally the public could be about to get its first look at the software.

The Windows Technical Preview will be released September 30

Microsoft has sent out invites to journalists and developers outlining their intention to hold an enterprise event on September 30 detailing “what’s next for Windows” . This will likely take the form of the release of the Windows Technical Preview, which would show of major features of the new operating system. While the OS is not yet complete and new features will be added before the software’s eventual 2015 public release, if past Technical Previews are anything to go off, it will give us a good idea of what the final version of the operating system will look like.

This new version of Windows itself is likely to return the Start menu which had been missed by many users. In addition, leaks have show it with a new integrated notifications center, as well as a new way of managing a multiple desktop environment. Aside from this, we can expect to hear lots more about the operating system once it is (mostly) unveiled on September 30.
