Microsoft is ready to move past Windows 8.x

It looks as though Microsoft is looking to put Windows 8/8.1 far behind it with its next operating system release. Microsoft insider Mary Jo Foley revealed last week that Microsoft is expecting to release a tech preview of Windows 9 next month to both developers and consumers.
 
Today, The Verge’s own sources say that Microsoft will unveil Windows 9 at a press event on September 30. According to The Verge:
 
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.

Windows 9 is expected to bring Cortana to desktops/notebooks/tablets, a new Start Menu, and Virtual Desktops.
 
As we reported earlier this morning, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 combined only account for 12.48 percent of the Windows market compared to 24.82 percent for Windows XP and 51.22 percent for Windows 7.
