After the release of the Windows 8 operating system, the next most awaited operating system from Microsoft will be the Windows 9 operating system and according to our sources, the latest Windows OS will be released to the market in April of 2015. Researchers find that the new operating system will greatly help in boosting the growth and sales of Windows operating systems in the internet.
The operating system that was earlier known by its code name as Threshold is designed by keeping the users of Windows 7 operating system. Due to this fact, the operating system will be having more of a desktop environment rather than having a tile based Metro interface. From pour sources in the Windows support center, we were able to know that the operating system will be available as a free upgrade to Windows 7 users too rather than just for Windows 8.x users. Another news that we got from Microsoft support center is that the Redmond based company is all set to release the new update for Windows 8.1 users.
The Windows 8 Update 2 is available free for Windows 8.1 users, however users with earlier versions of Microsoft will have to pay a nominal amount for getting the update. The company has even enabled Windows 7 users to upgrade to the new operating system and for promoting people top upgrade from the five-year-old operating system, the upgrade price is kept low. However if you ask me, I would suggest that you wait till the latest Windows OS appears in the market as it is promised to be a free update for Windows 7 users too.
We were also able to procure happy news for start menu lovers, the new Windows 9 operating system from Microsoft will have the Start menu reinforced in the user interface. After acknowledging various complaints, they have got from users complaining about the difficulty to navigate to settings menu and control panel tab from Metro user interface, Microsoft decided to make this move. The company also said that they would be releasing the touch versions of the Office site programs like Excel, Word, and PowerPoint along with the Windows Update 2. The touch first versions would have a working similar to Word on iPad.
However, some say that the touch first Office apps would only be released with the Windows 9 operating system for increasing the desirability of the operating system.
