Is This The New Windows?

Windows 9
An online photo has been circulating online allegedly showing the latest version of the future Windows 9. Posted on My Digital Life forums, a leaked picture could confirm Microsoft's intention to go back to this kind of menu after removing it in Windows 8.

Meanwhile, specialized website Neowin reports that the label "Windows 8.1" featuring on the screen is just a red herring, as Microsoft developers simply do not want to reveal a definitive name for the future operating system.

The commercial launch for Windows 9 (code name: Threshold) could take place in April 2015. Microsoft is believed to be planning to make all of its products (PCs, smartphones, tablets, games consoles...) migrate towards a single system.

Characterized by its completely redesigned interface and its compatibility with touchscreen devices, Windows 8 was released on 26 October 2012. A few days earlier, Microsoft CEO Bill Gates himself had hinted at that Windows and Windows Phone should one day converge towards a single platform.
