Details of Microsoft's next major Windows version, codenamed Threshold, have been steadily emerging over the last few weeks - and, as our regular readers will know, many of the biggest
and most interesting details
have been exclusively revealed by us here on Neowin
. But one detail that has remained a little ambiguous is when we might actually get our first official look at the new OS.
Last week, it emerged that Microsoft is planning to release a preview version
of the OS around the end of September, and today, The Verge
revealed that that information - originally revealed by Microsoft-watcher Mary Jo Foley - is accurate. According to its sources, Microsoft is "tentatively planning" a press event for September 30, at which the new Windows will be officially unveiled, with a pre-release version of the OS being made available on or shortly after that date.
