New information about the next major version of Windows has been coming through thick and fast in recent weeks, with many of the most exciting details revealed exclusively here on Neowin
, long before they showed up in the videos that have leaked more recently.
But one aspect of the new OS that remains somewhat unclear is its name: just what will the new Windows be called? Its internal development codename is 'Threshold
', of course, but it is also widely referred to as 'Windows 9'.
reports, the Windows 9 moniker was actually mentioned today by the president of Microsoft France, Alain Crozier - and this may well be the first instance of a senior Microsoft figure using that name publicly.
Crozier was speaking at a press event which was also streamed online, at which he said that "in the next few days, we'll be releasing Windows 9." That was likely a reference to the event being held in San Francisco next week
, at which it will officially share details about the new OS for the first time.
