    Windows 9 preview to be unveiled on September 30


    The calendars have been marked at September 30, when Microsoft will unveil the preview of Windows 9 at a special press release. Although the date could even change, but September 30 coincides with Microsoft’s previous news leaks which proposed late-September and early-October release for Windows 9 preview. There has not been any definite news on how many features will be uncovered on the preview date. However the most anticipated Start menu and Metro apps are believed to be part of the inceptive look.


    Just a week ago, news was rambling of Microsoft planning to release the inceptive public preview of Windows 9 at September end or October beginning. However later, the sources from Microsoft told The Verge that the company is planning for a press meeting on September 30, where the preview will be launched during or after the event. The public is expecting to download the Windows 9 preview, like they previously downloaded the public builds of Windows 8. However chances are that Microsoft will be exclusively releasing it to the professionals and developers via MSDN and TechNet.


    The all-set-to-launch technology preview of Windows 9 will integrate a lot but all features. Following the same approach that the Windows 8 deployed in its public preview launch; providing almost same features as Windows 7. Even Windows 9 might be mishmash of old and new features. Rumor has it that the technology preview will have Start menu and that the users will be able to run Metro apps in a separate window on Desktop, however it is not confirmed as yet. In addition, another much anticipated feature, Cortana might not make it to the preview as well. What the users can expect are many small but significant changes, such as new Metro apps, UI tweaks, etc.


    Microsoft always focuses on user experience and convenience, and carrying the same objective it has integrated virtual desktops and Cortana for normal PC users. Cortana is quite useful in smartphones, yet it might live up to the same expectations in PCs and tablets. Cortana on PC, if worked well, will be a huge success for Microsoft and the company might be able to get back to the sales pinnacle it once used to cherish.
    The loyal users are anticipating that Microsoft might give some leads on Windows RT as well at press event on September 30, which will be incorporated into Windows Phone as grand unified Windows’ theory.
