Microsoft Sends Invitations For Windows 9 Preview
For all the Windows users, we have news from Microsoft. Microsoft has officially announced its upcoming Windows Threshold will be open for technical preview to invited guests of course, on 30th September in San Francisco. Apart from the operating system, Microsoft is most likely to give a preview of the Windows Server alongside as well.
“Join us to hear what’s next for Windows and the enterprise,” the invitations read.
When it comes to power users, they complain that Microsoft’s updates take a long time to be made. However, IT professionals find the yearly updates very frequent and time restricting for all the testing and debugging.
Hence, Microsoft is now making changes to these conflicting views regarding the new updates and releases with the launch of Threshold. Microsoft will make monthly updates a necessity in the participation for the technical preview.
The preview was initially targeted at enterprise users, but rumors are rife about the event being a public preview for anyone interested now. The preview is expected to give a sneak peek into the new features of the operating system. However, in case you’re still feeling left out, the preview won’t be showcasing all of the features that are expected to be delivered to us spring of next year. Instead, it will be throwing light on the changes Microsoft has made to the “Desktop” on Intel-based devices.
Threshold is reportedly the last major OS update by Microsoft. After that, small updates will be made on a regular basis like Azure and Office 365. According to Neowin.net, the Windows Update in the preview will contain a button which will allow easier upgrading of the build without having to re-install the entire operating system for each new update.
Though there is no comment on whether this button-which-makes-lives-easier will be integrated into the public version of the OS, this feature is fully developed and working, hinting at the possibility of integration.
Threshold, which will be launched as Windows 9, is basically focusing on improving the user experience on non-touch devices by introducing numerous new features. These features include customized user interfaces according to the requirements of the device. Like if a device doesn’t need a desktop, Threshold won’t show us one.
Moreover, the greatest feature along with the upgrading button is the notification center, which will allow the user to stay tuned to all new and upcoming releases or updates of the operating system.
What more the preview allows us to grab about the upcoming Windows operating system, we can only wait and watch till the event begins.
