As word about Windows 9 has trickled throughout the tech world, screen shots and videos have been coming out at record paces. On Monday, Windows 9 got a lot more real. Microsoft issued press invites for the next version of Windows, and it could get very exciting.
By giving the press invites, Microsoft is making sure that word about the event gets out quickly. The event, being held in San Francisco, will be the first public unveiling of Windows 9 and will be sure to garner a bunch of attention.
What To Expect On September 30th
The first thing that people are going to wonder, is what will Microsoft show off with the first unveiling of Windows 9? Most likely, the company will show off a feature packed demo that will thrill the media and press in attendance. Then, make sure they guide people through the areas of Windows 9 that are ready to show off.
In addition, many people are expecting this Windows 9 showoff to be the first public demo period for the Windows 9 release. While it will be a very beta release, it will be available for anyone looking to try it out, and report bugs back to Microsoft. This in its own right will get a lot of eager tech folks interested quickly.
What Not To Expect
With the anticipation of Windows 9, the thing that most end users should not expect is a polished product ready for production machines. It will be a very early release, one with problems, and one that has bugs. It’s still a ways away from the general release, but Microsoft knows that people want this asap, and will do anything to get away from Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
Most will want Microsoft to show off a solid demo, and to show off where Microsoft has made the improvements to the operating system. A lot is unknown about Windows 9, and will be interesting to know what is coming at the end of the month. It should be exciting, it should have Satya Nadella front stage, and be a big event for Microsoft in San Francisco.
The event has been announced and now its up to Microsoft. Windows 9 is here, and Threshhold is the name.
