Microsoft Announces Windows 9 Event

Microsoft has announced a Windows 9 event to be held in San Francisco on September 30th. The company will not be unveiling the new Windows, however, but will instead be showcasing its development. The event will focus on enterprise and power users of Windows. Invitations to press and others were sent out today.

The Redmond company usually calls these a “Windows Technical Preview” and will be showing off developments planned for the next version of its Windows operating system, likely launching late next year. Some screenshots and videos of this Preview in progress were leaked this week. Changes are drastic, but no more so than were the changes made to create Windows 8.

Many expect that much of the talk at this Microsoft event will be about Windows 9 and its role in virtual desktops and future integration with cutting-edge developments in screen and interface technologies.

The Verge predicts that Cortana will be a part of that future integration, as will user interface changes not yet ready for public viewing.

After a semi-successful launch for Windows 8, followed by many user issues and complaints before the first patch was released, Microsoft likely hopes that Windows 9 will go better. The company has been losing business over time, with profits from its operating system dropping steadily for the past decade.
