Just as expected, Microsoft sent out invitations on Monday for what’s planned to be the future of Windows platform.
It doesn’t take a genius to guess that it will be all about the first sneak peak of Windows 9 codenamed “Threshold.”
The invite, which coyly says, “Join us to hear about what’s next for Windows and the enterprise,” revealed that the ‘Windows’ event will be held at 1 p.m. ET on September 30 in San Francisco.
It’s expected that Microsoft will release the first beta of Windows 9 at the event or soon after for early adopters. As per rumors and leaks, the Redmond developers have brought back a version of Start Menu in Windows 9. Moreover, a number of changes are also expected that includes window-ed apps, virtual desktops, notification center, storage sense, Wi-Fi sense, new flat icons and the Cortana.
