Windows 9 To Release Sooner Than Expected?

Rumours have been circulating about the release date for Microsoft’s next operating system, which is being codenamed “Threshold”, and some sources expect a release before the end of the year.

Windows 9 Rumours Point To Early Release

Windows 8 has has not been particularly kind to Microsoft’s PR team and even though they made steps to iron out some of the complaints with the Windows 8.1 upgrade, many are still longing for an entirely new next operating system.


Microsoft are usually predictable with their release cycle but have been making more frequent updates to Windows 8. In similar fashion to what is happening elsewhere in the software industry, “number” upgrades have started to mean little with minor improvements the name of the game instead of major overhauls.

The general prediction is that we can expect to see Windows 9 released for public some time in 2015. However, WZOR believe it may be little bit sooner than that.

Windows 9 Before End Of The Year

According to WZOR, we can expect to get our hands on Microsoft’s next operating system before the end of the year.


They predict that the Windows 9 RTM code will be signed off by August 21. This information is coming directly from WZOR, who have strong track record in sharing leaks with verifiable screenshots and builds so it is certainly information that is not to be taking lightly.

Microsoft Pushing For Early Windows 9 Release

If these rumours prove to be true, it will be clear that Microsoft are hoping to roll out their next operating system before this year’s holiday season.

They will be certainly looking to avoid having any future sale figures stiffled by Windows 8 which has become increasingly obvious.


At the same time it is very important that any release of a new Operating System is not rushed out. For the first time Microsoft are not only facing their usual competition in Apple but also Google with their Chromebook. Windows 9 is a big release for Microsoft and one can imagine they will be doing everything they can to get it right.
