Itching to get a full look at what is in store with Windows 9? Well if this report holds up, you may be in luck, and get a chance to take the upcoming major new version of Windows for a spin later this year.
Most expect Microsoft to release Windows 9 in early 2015.
But there seems to be a chance that the company may actually complete development of the operating system before the year is out, and release it in its traditional year-end time frame. No fuss!
In true spy fashion, famed Windows leaker WZOR is claiming that Windows 9 is on track to reach RTM status in October 2014 — and this not only means that we may be able to see devices powered by this new version of Windows soon after, but a leaked copy or two might not be all that far away.
Good news for technology enthusiasts and Microsoft fans, if the development process is complete sooner. This new version of Windows is said to come with a refreshed version of Metro, including the ability to run Modern UI apps in windows.
A Start Menu is also expected to make a return in some shape, way or form.
For the time being, however, all eyes are on the upcoming BUILD 2014 developer conference where Redmond is expected to unveil Windows 8.1 Update 1, a new version that packs a bunch of performance and feature enhancements.
