When will Microsoft release Windows 9?

How much longer will it be before Windows 9 comes out? Windows 8 is ok as long as it’s running on a machine with a touch screen, but I really don’t like using it on non-touch screen laptops. Any news on when Windows 9 will be released?

Windows 9 should drop before September 2015

Windows 9 is actually what Microsoft wants to sell you

"Microsoft will reportedly announce Windows 9 this fall, Russian hacker group WZor said on a forum last week, following the launch of Windows 8.1 Update 2, which will be the last major update Windows 8 will receive. Windows 8.1 Update 2 is expected to be released by mid-August, and while the OS will get subsequent updates, no new features will be added to Windows 8.1. Instead, Microsoft will focus on its next major product it wants to sell buyers, which is Windows 9.

According to WZor, Microsoft will put a lot of cash into Windows 9 advertising, with the re-introduction of the Start button and new menu playing a central role into Microsoft’s ad campaigns. Recent reports have said that the Start button won’t be making a triumphant return in Windows 8.1 Update 2, and instead it’ll be a Windows 9 feature."

Windows 8 IS another Vista. Windows 9 SHOULD come in fall to use the holidays rush to shop to her advantage.

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.
