With Windows 9 Coming This Year, Microsoft Goes All-In on Rapid Releases


    Posted: 18 Feb 2014
    Windows 9 is supposed to be Microsoft’s next big thing in the OS market, with some people close to the matter saying that it could be launched sometime this year or in early 2015.

    That’s only a few months after the company introduced the new Windows 8.1 Update 1, so many consumers are curious to find out why the rush to bring so many fresh operating systems on such a short notice.


    While many are tempted to believe that Microsoft is desperate to fix Windows and move users from older platforms to newer ones, this is actually a strategy that has been outlined by former CEO Steve Ballmer at BUILD in June 2013.

    When ever Windows 9 does come out I just hope they get it "right". I know that there is no chance that they'll please everyone but I for one hope that they take the thoughts of the users in consideration when developing 9.

    Late 2015, for release of Windows Nine, would be well within the expected OS release cycle that has been in place for many many years.

    we need to remember that XP's longevity was not the norm, but a result of a massive change of development direction during the coding of it's replacement.

    It matters not. The anti Microsoft brigade will take it apart, whatever its worth.
