Coming Soon: The Windows 8 Replacement

By Vigilize | Tuesday, August 19, 2014 - Leave a Comment

Hopefully you weren’t caught in the recent Microsoft Update Fiasco!


Those of us who wait a while before installing Windows Updates, and who have Windows 8, are breathing a sigh of relief that the control, once considered critical, protected us.

And if you are like the many who have waived the control in the name of prudence, and in an act of “git er done” installed the update without the wait or any further investigation, take heart.  It appears Microsoft is ready to replace the operating system.

This article, by David Hamilton of readwrite.com, explains how the next version of the Windows operating system, currently codenamed “Threshold,” has indeed reached the threshold.  While the full release of “Windows 9” is due in 2015, the “public preview version” (beta) may be surfacing as early as September 2014.

The article also reviews some of the expected features.

Now . . . . . for your own sake . . . . don’t go rushing out to adopt it!   Thank goodness we’re all doing risk assessments before we deploy anything now!
