We've seen a number of Windows 9 (Threshold)
leaks in the past few weeks, courtesy of a German website WinFuture,
revealing a number of interesting features such as virtual desktops, notification center
, Start menu, and more. In the past few months, we've heard rumors that Microsoft
may bring Cortana to its desktop operating system.
Recently, the folks at WinFuture found several footprints of the personal assistant in the resource files of the Windows 9
Technical Preview Build 9834 as shown in the image below. They further mentioned it will offer a similar set of features and functionality as it does on Windows Phone
. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in the build at the moment -- just like the redesigned Internet Explorer 12.
