    Windows 9 is very likely to get its very first preview build late next month, but officially speaking, little is known so far about what’s expected to let us catch a glimpse of Microsoft’s Windows game changer.

    According to rumors however, Windows 9 Preview could see daylight on September 30 as part of a press event during which Microsoft is also expected to share more details about this project.

    Some WZor's tweets translated by 'Superuser' at MDL.

    Of course, Metro UI won't be enabled by default in Enterprise and Server versions.

    Special build of Windows 9 Enterprise Technical Preview is compiled already, OEM test builds of Windows 9 Pro won't be available for public.

    Test build of Windows 9 RT for ARM processors is compiled too, but it can be tested only on Surface 3.

    MS: "We don't know how to make people switch from Windows XP. Users of Windows 7 will get awesome offer.

    Those who bought Windows 8 Retail versions or bought a machine with it, will receive special offer, worth about 20$.

    Windows 9 will support 3D on UHD TV.

    New feature: backup and restore system image from cloud.

    Microsoft is developing ability to virtualize backups of physical systems in the cloud.

    "Cloud hypervisor" - it's a reality.

    Interesting

    Now to wait for the price of it, but getting an offer of $20 doesn't sound much, unless it means 9 will be available for $20 then that is good

    I think a few were hoping for a Monty Python edition, "And now for something completely different".

    Just for the record, I'm not one of them.

    "Windows Technical Preview for Enterprise." Looks like Microsoft is keeping its tradition of mouthful titles.... :)

    Seriously, I want no more Aero iconography on the Desktop. Get that crap out there! The UX of Windows 8 sometimes looks weird because of these 3D, shiny icons versus the flat modern ones. That's not going to be ANY better when a mini-Start Screen shows up.

    Not sure if you guys got a glimse of this...

    Seems the new start menu can be expanded (?full screen) as a mini-start screen...

    I love the Aero themes, I wish they would bring it back
    and the advance screen for customizing would be a nice touch also.

    I hope you can turn it off, going to Metro the way it is in Windows 8 is just fine for me.
