Microsoft officially launched Windows 8 in October 2012, but the company is already working on Windows Blue, the first update that might see daylight in August. While some say that Blue arrives way too soon for the OS market, it appears that Microsoft has even more surprises prepared for its users.A report published by Digitimes claims that Microsoft is already developing another operating system, most likely Windows 9, which “will serve as the next-generation Windows.”
While this isn’t the first time we hear that Windows 9 is a work in progress, the same report claims that the next Windows version might be released in October. This means that Windows 9 might see daylight only two months after the first Windows 8 makeover.
Previous reports noted that Windows 9 is indeed under development right now, but the final version shouldn’t arrive sooner than November 2014.
As usual, Microsoft doesn’t comment on these rumors, so take them with a grain of salt until something official comes out.
