Do you know for what it "Preview" says? "Windows 9 Preview"? Or do you only know it now says "Preview".

 

It says Windows Technical Preview.

The splash screens of Threshold builds have been updated to say 'preview'.

Brad, any indication when Microsoft might be planning to announce this?

It says Windows Technical Preview.

So they are doing something similar as they did with Windows 8, of which the first preview was called "Windows Developer Preview", not Windows 8... Let's hope the september/october rumors are true. :)

Late September per Foley, I have only been hearing 'soon'.

Correct.

Yes and no. Yes there are screenshots but they can't be shared for obvious reasons.

 

 

 

Current build is 982X.

Sorry, man, I have never leaked builds, just a messenger to report on builds being leaked. :)

 

Btw, I'd like to mention what happened in 2011: In May canouna mentioned "a new name on win8 builds", in June a OEM guy posted screen-shot of "Windows Developer Preview" in PCBeta, in Sept. MS released WDP - so make a wild guess based on this time-line.

I now know why FaiKee thinks that Threshold and Windows 9 are two separate things, not saying that I agree, but I know where it is coming from.

I can probably turn it into a post for the front page, will have another Threshold post up tomorrow but it won't be related to this topic.

I understand you have to protect you're sources.

 

So if you don't respond that's fine.

 

But is it because of 2 branches one with W9 and the other W365? Or W9 and W9RT merge? That rumors started? Or just because at some point when build conference happen the plan was to release a 8.2 instead of August update and work at W9 at the same time 2 branches existed?

Nah I can answer it, has nothing to do with a single source. I'll turn it into a blog post but it has to do with the design updates to the OS. If you were to put two builds right next to each either, they look totally different.

Now I guess I know what you are thinking, and it's not why I said Threshold is not win9, anyway, I would like to see your blog, it will be really interesting for our members.

 

Leaving for China for the day, hope to see it to-night. :)
