Microsoft codename 'Threshold': The next major Windows wave takes shape

    Posted: 03 Dec 2013

    When I blogged recently about Microsoft's plans on the operating-systems front following Windows 8.1, I mentioned a couple of "spring 2015" releases.

    It turns out the Microsoft codename for that wave of deliverables is "Threshold."

    A couple of my contacts have confirmed that Microsoft Executive Vice President Terry Myerson recently mentioned the Threshold codename in an internal email about plans for his unified operating-system engineering group.

    If all goes according to early plans, Threshold will include updates to all three OS platforms (Xbox One, Windows and Windows Phone) that will advance them in a way to share even more common elements.

    Read the comments. Especially this guy's:

    "It would really be nice if Microsoft would get on board with the rest of the world and switch over to Linux. They could do it relatively easily, just go to to the web and download..."

    Yeah, there's the answer...

    If the pundits are correct, they don't even have to go to that extreme.
    A couple of years ago, Novell (SUSE)had a huge investment, and purchase of their majority shares, from a company which didn't have that kind of finance. investigations lead to the conclusion that it was backed by Microsoft, who could see this third party purchase avoided legalities through trusts.

    This was one such rumour at the time. Good thought for gossip:
