Microsoft's Chinese division has officially confirmed that Windows 9 is coming soon.

The company took to social network Weibo to tease the launch of the next-generation operating system, dropping a strong hint that the Start Menu of old will be restored, The Verge reports. A post from Microsoft China, which has since been removed, read: "Microsoft's latest OS Windows 9 is coming soon, do you think the start menu at the left bottom will make a comeback?"

Windows 9 is expected to include improved support for keyboard and mouse users and the integration of Cortana, Microsoft's voice-activated personal assistant. The Charms bar of Windows 8 is believed to have been dropped and Windows Store apps will apparently run on desktop.

Microsoft has also been tipped to announce a unified version of Windows RT and Windows Phone, which is likely to be closely integrated with Windows 9. In the works under the codename of 'Threshold', Windows 9 is expected to be announced and distributed to developers on September 30.

I love Windows 8 which I know isn't a common opinion so I'm looking forward to seeing the full details for Windows 9!

This is arriving a lot quicker than I thought it would. In response to the mass, justified, hatred that windows 8 got perhaps?

Can't wait for OS X Yosemite, the Mac OS just shits on Windows from a colossal height.

... Basically.

They need to revamp. Come up with a much better style and more efficient programs that are only available with them. They can change their name to MICROHARD.

Mac doesn't support games I want sleep.gif It has such a great interface but it's just not powerful enough for me. I'm happy enough with Windows 8 right now.

If they could come up and RELEASE something as horrible and sinister as Windows 8, I don't hold any hope Windows 9 will be an improvement.

Windows versions alternate between being horrible and being good. 9 is due to be a good one. (And as bad as 8 is at least it's not Vista)

I've seen iOS being critiqued for just copying Samsung features two years later but this looks to me like Microsoft have made a Windows skin for OSX. Looks better than the abomination that is 8 but I won't be switching back. Why settle for a cheap immitation when you can have the real thing that works better, looks nicer and isn't such a magnet for malware.

This is being released on July 29th and will be the last Windows ever! From now on, all updates will just happen without any full new editions apparently.

A nice overview of the operating system can be found here

It is a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8 users for the first 12 months I believe, will you be upgrading? I think I will do, I can't stop myself trying some new technology and it looks like this should be a solid improvement on Windows 8.1 which I have at the moment - and really like despite the negativity towards it.
