Three UI changes show a positive new direction away from the unloved Windows 8

InfoWorld | Sep 17, 2014

In the past week, we received some official news and some unofficial about the next version of Windows -- aka Windows 9, Windows "Threshold," and vNext. Both give new hope that the dark period of Windows 8 may soon be ending.

Starting with the official news, Microsoft sent out an invitation for a Sept. 30 event with the theme “What’s next for Windows” that is apparently more enterprise-focused than consumer-focused. We'll know on Sept. 30 what's in store there.
