Microsoft sends out invites for September 30 event

Microsoft September 30 event - What's next for Windows
Microsoft event invite
The invites claim Microsoft will show what's next for both Windows and the enterprise so this makes almost certain the fact that Windows 9 will be officially unveiled on September 30.

Most rumors concerning Windows 9 "Threshold" we heard in the last few months indicated the end of September/early October as the period of its official unveiling. While Microsoft still has to officially confirm this, which will probably happen at the press event itself, Windows 9 should show up at the end of this month.

The press invites sent earlier this week by the Redmond giant read "Join us to hear about what's next for Windows and the enterprise." next to the date of the event and a Microsoft logo. While the highlight of the event is expected to be the preview build of Windows 9, next to the launch date of the final build, there is one more thing. 

Various rumors mentioned that Windows RT and Windows Phone will be discontinued and a new OS will launch alongside Windows 9. While Microsoft did not confirm this yet, it is possible to see this show up on September 30 as well. Considering the reference to the enterprise sector, we may even see a new Windows Server version, but all these need to be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. We will get back to this event as soon as more info about it becomes available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
