Windows 8’s Successor To Be Announced At BUILD 2014
Windows 8 has been with us for almost 18 months and it’s been rumoured that it’s successor will be announced at BUILD 2014 in April. Not everybody likes Windows 8, I’m personally still happy with Windows 7 but perhaps Windows 9, currently under the codename of “Threshold”, may be more lovable.
That does seem to be the pattern. XP was great, Vista was horrid, Windows 7 was great and Windows 8 was met with more than a little disdain. So Windows 9 should another good one.

According to SuperSite for Windows, which specializes in posting everything public and secret regarding Microsoft products, the Windows-maker plans on releasing the new operating system in April 2015.
The pre-alpha build of “Threshold” will be made available to developers after BUILD 2014 with three milestone releases before it is put into production.
There is also a theory that “Threshold” has absolutely nothing to do with a possible Windows 9 but is rather an update for Windows 8 similar to Windows 8.1. We’ll see what happens come April.
