On Tuesday of next week, Microsoft will start to talk openly about the next major version of Windows, widely called Windows 9, but they may have another name up their sleeve. For the enterprise, though, Microsoft will be courting them heavily so that they upgrade from Windows 7 to this new generation of Windows.
While the details are still a bit slim, thanks to a website that was put up a bit early, we can see how Microsoft is hoping to push the enterprise into the new era.
The website, which can be seen here, lists the following four reasons for the enterprise to upgrade:
Defend against modern security threats
Elevate employee productivity
Embrace the mobile and cloud era
Enable upgrade without upheaval
For those curious, none of the links on that page go to a working download, for now. But alas, we can see how Microsoft is hoping to convince the enterprise that this build of Windows is worth upgrading to and that Windows 7 is now an aging OS.
It will be a hard fought battle for Microsoft to get massive corporations to upgrade when many of them waited until the last minute to move off of XP.
