Windows 9 set to be unveiled on September 30th

Windows 8 is Microsoft's most radical OS yet and it is no secret that it has not been well received. Sales and market share have been well below expectations and Microsoft is keen to make things right. As a result, the latest rumours are suggesting that Microsoft will unveiling Windows 9 at a special press event on September 30th.

Codenamed "Threshold", Windows 9 will reportedly feature a new mini Start menu; and, as we reported earlier, Microsoft will also remove the Charms bar feature. There will also be several other UI changes and previews could also include an early version of Cortana.

While Microsoft is not expected to do away with its Modern UI interface, it is thought that Windows 9 will feature closer integration between the two, making the OS more seamless to use between touch and traditional inputs.
