The possibility of Microsoft launching a brand new Windows operating system is imminent and it is likely to be called Windows 9 Threshold. The tentative Windows 9 release date is being estimated to be in April 2015 according to reports from sources close to the company.

This development is being seen as a result of the response that Windows 8 received over its lifespan so far. In fact, with the development of Windows 9 already on the cards and its expected initiation at the Build 2014 conference, one can expect the previous version to die a slow death.
