Windows 9 rumours roundup

WASHINGTON: Just eight day remaining in Microsoft’s event, the anticipation Windows 9 is getting higher with new leaked images of company’s upcoming operating system.

The launch of Windows 8.1 was allot more smother then the Windows 8. Now Windows 9 is expected to be allot better than its predecessor which itself one of the successful operating system.

There are also patents, which may or may not be relevant, and some rare comments from developers on the Windows team. Here’s what we’ve heard about Windows 9 and what we think is happening.

The new update features improvements to the Start Screen including the ability to boot straight into the Desktop, the return of shutdown on Start and a more familiar taskbar to unify the old and new user interfaces.

The new Start Menu is present – a combination of the old Windows 7 Start Menu and the current one on Windows 8.x start screen.

A new Task View button on the taskbar will allow you to switch between running apps and will see the introduction of virtual or custom desktops, something Linux and Mac users have had for ages.

Microsoft also introduced a new feedback programme called the Windows Insider Preview Programme, which allows users to get more regular preview builds and provide frequent feedback to Microsoft

While still just a codename, Windows 9 was referenced by Microsoft in a job posting, spotted by MSFT Kitchen on 13 March 2013.

One thing which will hurt 32 bit users is that the new operating system will be designed for only 64 bit and 128 bit system, according to report.

So if you are using 32 bit system you can’t enjoy the Windows 9 unless you upgrade your system to 64 bit at least.

A Bing Software Development Engineer, says that the team will be delivering products “in areas including Windows 9, IE11 services integration, touch friendly devices including iPad and more.”
