Windows Technical Preview Discussion Thread
With September 30th coming up, Windows 9 (or just "Windows"), codenamed Threshold, has leaked. I think its time to start a thread specifically for the Technical Preview and leaks.

Merry Christmas everyone. Ho! Ho! Ho! Today I

The first public build was released after announcement of Windows 10. We could see glimpse of some new icons being updated and hopefully the final product will have the whole new UI. It took a while for testing and fixing all bugs found in Windows XP/7/8.1 so I hope I didn?t come too late for the show.
Although I?d like to write something cool for the first Windows 10 project release. However, I?m facing a terrible headache from fixing all those bugs all day and night just to make it on time so Windows 10 Transformation Pack will come with the following features as below:
-Seamless installation and uninstallation giving users safe transformation
-Easily configurable in single click with intelligence Metro UI design
-Designed for all editions of Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1 including Server Editions
-Genuine Windows 10 system resources with Metro touches
-Smart system files updating with auto-repair and Windows Update friendly
-UxStyle memory patching
-Windows 10 themes, wallpaper and logon screen
-Virtual Desktop from Microsoft
-Revived start menu with Metro support
-Metro UI desktop emulation with pre-configured gadgets
-Aero?s auto-colorization feature
I hope to see more features coming soon in future builds. It?d be cool to have something more than just start menu and virtual desktop.

I've not run a Win preview on a VM machine... while we don't know exactly what to expect, what are some of the constraints and requirements the community would recommend for preparing a VM box for it?

Microsoft set to unveil Windows 9 on September 30th
Microsoft is planning to unveil its Windows 8 successor next month at a special press event. Sources familiar with Microsoft?s plans tell The Verge that the software maker is tentatively planning its press event for September 30th to detail upcoming changes to Windows as part of a release codenamed "Threshold." This date may change, but the Threshold version of Windows is currently in development and Microsoft plans to release a preview version of what will likely be named Windows 9 to developers on September 30th or shortly afterwards. The date follows recent reports from ZDNet that suggested Microsoft is planning to release a preview version of Windows 9 in late September or early October.
The early technology preview will give developers a first look at the new mini Start Menu in Windows 9, alongside the removal of the Charms bar feature and several UI changes. Microsoft is currently compiling builds of Threshold ready for the preview that include an early version of Cortana, but it?s not clear if this particular feature will be made available as part of the technology preview.
While Threshold is likely to be named Windows 9, it?s unlikely that Microsoft will name its upcoming Windows release at its press event. Instead, Microsoft is said to be planning an overview of key new features of the upcoming operating system, with a technical preview ready for developers and enthusiasts. Microsoft is also building a separate combined version of Windows RT and Windows Phone, and the company may take the time to detail this work during its press event. Either way, Microsoft?s next version of Windows is nearing completion and the company will be ready to talk more about it next month.
