Microsoft has been rumored to be working on the launch of a new preview version of Windows 9 toward the end of September or early October.
Microsoft's Windows 9, the successor to the widely panned Windows 8, could be shown off at the end of next month, according to a new report.
Microsoft is planning to hold a special press event on September 30 to show off Windows 9, The Verge is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans. The date is currently "tentative," according to the report.
It's not yet clear whether Windows 9 will actually be known as Windows 9. The operating system is currently code-named Windows Threshold, though it's highly likely that Microsoft will keep its numbering scheme with the next platform.
Whenever Threshold makes an appearance, it's expected to come with a wide range of improvements, including a "mini" Start Menu, separate windows for Metro-style applications running on the desktop, and support for virtual desktops.
Microsoft was succinct in its response to the news, saying only that it has "nothing to share" at this point.
