That’s today. BUILD 2014 registration opens January 14, 2014 at 9am PST. You need to cough up some $2,095. Will be worth it to hear about Windows 9 codenamed Threshold from the proverbial horse’s mouth? I think so. And I’m also ready to bet that there will be more Windows 9 goodies in stored for BUILD participants (wink, wink).

Windows 9 / codenamed Threshold launch set for April 2015

Microsoft is gearing up to put the “immense success” of Windows 8 behind it, and not a moment too soon, if you ask me and 90% of all Windows users who didn’t upgrade to the current version of the company’s operating system. According to Paul Thurrott , the Redmond company will start discussing the next major release of Windows at its upcoming Build 2014 conference in April this year.
Codenamed Threshold, Windows 8’s successor will be built in a single year. It appears that Microsoft is considering releasing Threshold under the moniker Windows 9 in April 2015, which means that the next major iteration of Windows is roughly just a year away.
However, as per the tradition of Windows development, early adopters will get their hands on Windows 9 bits a lot sooner, possibly even before the end of 2014. This because the company has planned at least three major development stages for Windows 9, such as an Alpha release, which is most likely to be offered internally, a Beta, the first public milestone, followed by a Release Candidate and the RTM.
Windows 9 will be focused on resolving the issues that have been alienating users from adopting Windows 8, mainly the experience discrepancy between Metro and the desktop “cousins”, exponents of the artificial marriage between touch and traditional UI interaction.
