Haven been out two weeks from the purported release date of the technical preview of Windows 9, videos of the upcoming operating system have been loaded onto the Internet. German site WinFuture has released a mess of screenshots and videos of the upcoming code over the past few days, which certainly are to our benefit.
Update: It’s Windows 10, not Windows 9.
Some good number of clips are up for watching, detailing how Windows 9 will handle multiple desktops, the return of the Start Menu, and more. Presuming that you have missed at least one, I’ve included each in this post.
The videos are a classic example what Microsoft views as a proper remediation — and fusion — of its tablet-facing efforts included in Windows 8, and support of desktop features that echo the popular Windows 7. They are worth considering.
Microsoft did not comment on the video showing off the new Start Menu. So far there has not been any pushback from the external media that the clips are fake. Of course, we can’t know for sure, but it seems that Windows 9 — what is called Threshold inside of Microsoft — is dripping into the public eye as its formal release is prepped for the general market.
Though the videos are of a pre-preview build, much could still change. The user interface elements could be updated, functionality stripped, or added, and so forth.
