A little while back we gave you a Microsoft Windows 9 rumor roundup and today we’ve got some interesting news that will sure shock some of you. Apparently, the new Microsoft Windows 9 will not be called Windows anymore, most likely.
The new Microsoft Windows 9, as most people know it, will be released for the masses at the beginning of 2015. The codename for it has been Threshold for those inside the company and simply Windows 9 for the rest of us. Some analysts are suggesting that the name Microsoft Windows 9 won’t stick and that the company will most likely come up with a new name for their latest operating system.
Why would Microsoft want to change such an iconic name? Many believe it has something to do with the fiasco that Microsoft Windows 8 was. The new name would clearly suggest a new direction for the tech giant. Microsoft wants to put Windows 8 behind them as quickly as possible.
The company wanted to redesign Windows, having tablet users in mind. It’s safe to say that nobody liked Windows 8 and what people absolutely hated was the lack of the beloved start button.
Some voices close to the project are saying that the Start button is coming back with a vengeance, and the option of tacking on tiles would also be available. Microsoft Windows 9 will be something quite different from Windows 8 and thank God for that!
Microsoft has avoided confirming or infirming any rumors, so all we can do is wait until next week when it might release some information regarding the new Microsoft Windows 8.
