Microsoft Windows 9 release date, and features have been shared by a Chinese Windows leaker stating roughly what Satya Nadalla has in the pipeline for 2014.FaiKee revealed through a post on the Neowin forum that Redmond, Washington software firm is working on Windows 9, Windows 8.1 Update 2, Office 2015, and Windows 365. The leaked image also contains products that Microsoft wants to update. This includes existing software such as Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, and Office 2013.

The Windows 9, both server and mobile editions are expected to be released next year. Windows 365 is listed as "Alpha based on Windows Core." This is thought to be a cloud-based platform linked to Office 365.

Office 2015 is in the manufacturing phase and listing Office 2015 may suggest a tentative release date of 2015 for all the aforementioned products inclusive of Windows 9. A Windows 8.1 update 2 still looms ahead of the next Windows. This update is expected to restore the popular 'Start Menu.'

Also in the Microsoft Windows rumor mill is that Windows 9 will come free to Windows 8.1 users, increasing adoption of the new platform.

Microsoft Windows 9 Release Date is still unveiled, although teased to be April 2015, but it will be nicknamed Threshold according to sources close to the story. However it will probably launch as 9.

ZDNet reported. "If all goes according to early plans, Threshold will include updates to all three OS platforms (Xbox One, Windows and Windows Phone) that will advance them in a way to share even more common


"Windows 9 is being developed without the help of Steven Sinofsky, former President of the Windows Division at Microsoft,

who left the company after the release of Windows 8 in Nov. 2012. Microsoft is reportedly taking this opportunity to start a new "vision" and era for Windows," the LatinPost reported.

"Don't expect anything that grandiose, but the Windows team believes it needs to hit a happy middle ground between the

KGB-style secrecy of the Sinofsky camp and the freewheeling 'we can do it all' days that preceded that," Paul Thurrott said in a post on Winsupersite.com.

According to critics, Windows 8 is "tanking harder than Microsoft is comfortable discussing in public, and the latest release,

Windows 8.1, which is a substantial and free upgrade with major improvements over the original release, is in use on less

than 25 million PCs at the moment."

That's a disaster, says experts and 'Threshold' needs to pave a middle ground for more than a billion traditional PC and

appeal to users of new computing devices.

Threshold needs to be what Windows 8 is not.
