Windows 9 "Threshold" Is On The Threshold

Geekwire - Microsoft is gearing up to reveal its latest major update to Windows, codenamed “Threshold” at a press event tentatively set for late September, according to a report by the Verge.

The update is slated to contain a return to a desktop Start menu that will look and feel more familiar to people who are used to Microsoft’s older operating systems like Windows 7. The new update is also slated to allow people to use apps that take advantage of Windows’s new “modern” user interface on the desktop rather than requiring them to run in full-screen mode.

In addition, Microsoft is reportedly planning to add a stand-alone app version of its Cortana virtual assistant in the new release, which will allow users to talk to their computer in order to perform certain tasks. Cortana was first announced at the company’s Build developer conference earlier this year, and is available for Windows Phone users through the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
