There hasn’t been any official announcement, but at least two generally reliable sources have said that Microsoft will announce Windows 9 sometime this year. Wzor, a Russian blogger with proven sources inside the company, and Mary Jo Foley from Cnet have both made similar statements. That’s not a guarantee, but I would consider it a strong indication that it will happen in 2014.
