Report: Microsoft Will Drop Windows 9 Preview Next Month

By Mario Aguilar on at

ZDNet reports that Microsoft will release a preview of Windows 9 next month, in advance of of the general release, which is expected in Spring 2015. Which of the the rumoured improvements will Microsoft show off in the early preview?

So far we've heard a number of rumours about what Windows 9 might have in store, including everything from baked-in Cortana, to a mini start menu, to a new UI that completely ditches charms. Obviously the report is just a rumour at this point, but it makes sense: Windows 8 was first previewed in September 2011. [ZDNet]
