Posted on 05/22/2014 7:57:43 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Microsoft might be preparing to give the public its first taste of Windows 9 between the second and third quarters of 2015, according to a newly leaked document.
Tech blog Myce has obtained a leaked internal Microsoft document from a source in China known as FaiKee.
The document, first spotted on Myce's website by Windows blog WinBeta, lists both Windows 9 and Windows Phone 9 as scheduled for a release preview between Q2 and Q3 2015.
Here's a screenshot of the document:
A release preview is exactly what its name suggests. It's a nearly finished version of the software that the public gets to mess around with before the official launch.

Hopefully they took windows 7, tweaked the kernal to make it faster, and then took a sharpie to the box of windows 7 and turned the 7 into a 9....
A tech girl can dream..
9 8 Is Coming Next Year And Will Fix A Lot Of Problems With Windows 8 7...
Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade to Windows 8, and it works great. I have no problems with it. It runs every piece of old software that I used to run in Vista32.
And then Windows 10 will fix the problems of Windows 9 that fixed the problems of Windows 8 that was so much better than Vista.
In agreement Bump
:) You’re being logical, again; Microsoft don’t play that, as they say in the hood.
Of course they are working on it. Probably just a tentative (preview) release date. The date will probably slip. They usually do.
as a hacker..good to know
In before the Microsuck Fanboi’s claim it will revolutionize all computing and drive all other OS out of existence!
I forgot who it was here who quipped, “Linux....the ultimate Windows service pack”.
I run Ubuntu on my computer, and it works fine; I’ve never had a problem with it.
Also, with the new IOS Office 365 apps, I am very happy with my mixed ecosystem for now.
They should have delayed the release of Windows 8 until all these bugs were fixed.
I hope it is XP with renewed support. Windows 8 is terrible.
I used to be an Apple guy until the Apple CEO got all political, telling his shareholders to sell their Apple holdings if they are climate “deniers”. What a shame! I hope that Microsoft gets its act together and puts together software that works with no bugs, and actually user friendly for a change.
Heck, I can’t even keep Windows 8 which came with this PC a year or so ago from having to System Restore every month or so. Keeps me all wee-wee’d up.
So we’re going to get a newer version of an OS that has never operated without being patched, reworked, renamed, and resold with each new iteration as the best thing since the B-707.
And the Chinese already have knowledge of this possible release why? Because their hackers are better than ours? Or because MS is still supporting their copies of XP until 2015 which MS wont do for the rest of us. Is MS by doing so supporting the Chinese military’s evil expansion?
Stay tuned and drink your Ovaltine.
I replied, "WTF am I now? Everything MS has is in "Beta."
If they’re committed to “one user experience” and “Metro” that means Windows 9 will still have a touchscreen interface on a desktop or laptop computer. That was the fundamental error in Windows 8. The two user experiences are quite different and cannot successfully be forced into one, no matter how pretty it looked to Ballmer in a Powerpoint presentation four years ago.
Sounds fake (faikee) to me.
Windows 8 on the desktop mode placed side by side with windows 7 = same
The new versions always seem to build on the mistakes of the old.
Same with me, although I had my Win 7 computer fixed, there are still some things Win 7 does better or Win 8.1 can’t seem to do yet.
Tech “journalism” has devolved into nothing but click-bait headlines based on meaningless “leaked” info with a faulty premise of “[fixing] A Lot Of Problems With Windows 8”...
[Which never explains what those problems are]
All to draw out the usual clown car of Linux, Apple, and XP users to see who can out-do each other in screaming about how terrible Windows 8 is and how what they use is so brilliant.
It almost makes MSNBC look like real news.
At least MS treats you more nicely (than the rest of us) if you’re an “official beta tester.” They do expect you to work for them by finding out where things are broken, but you’d probably do that anyway.
For a tech geek, it could be worth doing at least for one go-around.
The parties to which you can get invitations aren’t half bad (or at least weren’t some years ago).
Then I wouldn’t like 7 either.
Have you tried classic shell and just use the desktop - works fine for me. There are issues that certainly need some work - like when a program opens from the metro side there is no way to shut it down other than through the task manager!!!
Have you seen (or worse attempted to communicate with) the latest Geek versions? (Geek 46.7)
I would party with them only after 15 minutes of artillery prep, TOT. In ye olden geek days, all that was needed was soap and water and maybe a toothbrush. Now they need Pine-Sol, Lysol, and a steam pressure washer (for the tattoos).
You could just swipe the screen to close the program.

They did tweak the kernel in windows 8, some tweaks for the better some for the worse...

Microsoft = The Fix is in there....
Well they say only upgrade to every other Windows Release.
XP - Yes
Vista - No
7 - Yes
8 - No
9 - ?
They are not getting rid of Metro UI - the color tiles.
Dumbing down on stupid.
Yes, thanks. I use the classic shell and it helped some. My problem is stuff that worked perfectly on my XP won’t work on Win 8. I have problems staying automatically logged onto some sites I visit frequently, my perfectly good MS Office won’t work, games I would play on XP won’t work, trying to coax that “charms” crap to peak out is a pain, I cannot get my old printer to work right with 8, and virtually anything I try to duplicate from my working XP over to the win 8 takes hours of work, anger, frustration and often failure. I love the new powerful computer.
Life’s too short for dealing with this this crap.
Me too. It's working great on two desktops, a netbook, a laptop, a tablet and a phone. I don't understand all the Win8 bashing.
When Windows ‘fixes’ stuff, my unbroken things no longer work.
I see Apples in my future.
1. it must just work.
2. it must be robust.
3. it must be reliable.
4. it should not provide hackers with ways into the system.
Can Microsoft do it?
"Dad, I wish you could just shut your big YAPPER!"
I used to work on an operating system that met the above criteria VERY CLOSELY — OpenVMS (used to be owned by DEC, now HP owns it ).
Unfortunately, it isn’t very popular nowadays.
“There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission....”
Just bought a new top of the line Dell at home.. I ordered it with Win7, which I still have on my other ‘puter.. I like it quite a bit... don’t know why that had to change it up to 8...
tablets don’t work for me for music composition and commercials composition...some of us still need desktop ‘puters.
And, there are so many annoying things; e.g. having to type a password every time I turn the machine on. Maybe there is even a work around to avoid that but researching and setting that up would be another pain I didn’t need.
Annoying because I cannot wait that long. Also, unless they bring back the old format, with a DAMN START MENU!... and CTR ALT DELETE!!!! Seriously, in trying to mimic Apple, they ruined everything with Windows 8
