This week we are going to see the real launch of the Windows 9 code from Microsoft. The Technical Preview will be officially unveiled in an event in San Francisco.
The excitement is rising and so are rumors and leaks associated with the next iteration of the Windows OS. In the fag end of the waiting period, a page has appeared in the Microsoft website which is showing a download link to the 32 and 64 bit of the Windows Technical Preview for Enterprise. Strangely this Windows version is named Windows TH. It is not clear if it will be the final name which will be used.
However do not jump out of your boots after hearing this and grab the latest Windows tit bit. It seems that the page is only a placeholder as of now. The download button currently links to a non-updated version of the TechNet Evaluation Center. The link which was meant to download the page was briefly live. It revealed that the US version weighs 3.16 GB and 4.10 GB. There have been a number of leaks about the build and screenshots which gives us a pretty good idea about the next Windows OS.
Till date there was a perception that name of the next OS from Microsoft will be Windows 9. The TH could be related to the Threshold codename which has been used so far. A photo posted by Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of Operating Systems in response to name postulations on Twitter by Tom Warren from the Verge and Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet. It shows Myerson standing in front of the new Windows logo. Myerson very cleverly hid the all important name with his body. Windows 9, Windows X, Windows One, or even just Windows are names that are hotly postulated as the final moniker.
