We could get Windows 9 way sooner than we thought

We could get Windows 9 way sooner than we thought

We could be seeing a preview version of Windows 9 as early as late September. There's a catch, though, and it's that anyone who downloads the Windows "Threshold" preview version will have to agree to have updates pushed to their computers automatically.

Windows 9 looks to be a move away from forcing PC users to work around a home screen oriented around touch screens and bringing back the desktop. The team working on the Threshold preview build, according to ZDNet is focused more around a rapid update cycle.

Windows 8 was designed around specific pre-designated milestones. That's probably a big reason why the OS is designed with a very singular touch-screen focus. More updates means more opportunities to fix the flaws in an operating system.

If you didn't like Windows 8, then Windows 9 could possibly be exactly what you're looking for. And according to a ZDNet blogger's Microsoft source, the Threshold preview will be available to anyone who wants to download it.
