The Windows 8 jig is up – It’s Windows Vista 2 and Microsoft are looking forward to Windows 9

Paul Thurrott today confirmed what this blog has been saying for the past 18 months – Windows 8 has fundamentally been a massive failure.

In a post today, he outlined the fact that Microsoft are trying to move past Windows 8 as fast as possible.

Here are some of the scoops:

Threshold is the codename for the next generation of Windows that might be Windows 9.
Like Blue was for Windows 8.1, Threshold is a codename that refers to a wave of refreshes that are coming to Windows.
Windows 8 is pretty much Vista 2 and Windows 9 will attempt to fix the problems of its predecessor.
Microsoft will first discuss “Threshold” at BUILD 2014.
Microsoft will start officially working on “Threshold” around or after BUILD 2014.
April 2015 is the target date for Windows 9.

Pretty massive scoop by Paul. Nicely done.

Stay tuned for my next article when I’ll tell you why this all doesn’t matter and the damage Windows 8 has done is much worse than you even know.

On that cheerful note, have a great weekend!
