Microsoft has not hidden that fact that Windows 9 is on the way, but a slip of the tongue by Microsoft China could suggest it might appear sooner rather than later.
In a post on chinese microblogging site Weibo, Microsoft China posed the question:
“Microsoft’s latest OS Windows 9 is coming soon, do you think the start menu at the left bottom will make a come back?”
A mockup wallpaper, similar to one that made the rounds earlier in the year accompanied the post before it was taken down.
While it was a minor slip of the tongue, it does suggest windows 9 is not far away. rumors have been swirling that Microsoft could announce the new OS around September 30th, with developers getting immediate access.
