It was revealed at Microsoft's BUILD developers conference earlier this year that the traditional Start menu would be making a re-appearance at some point in the near feature, and although Microsoft stopped short of offering specific details, a new leak gives as an insight into what we can expect of this feature once reinstated.
Windows 8, it's fair to say, did not make the kind of impression on users that Microsoft had hoped, and although the Windows 8.1 follow-up has been generally well received, it goes without mention that the preceding Windows 7 is considered by most to be the strongest release to date. It should come as very little surprise, then, that Windows 9 - or Windows 8.2 as we like to call it here - looks set to arrive next year in 2015, and according to a report by Paul Thurrott, we'll be getting an official word on it at April's BUILD 2014 dev conference.
Redmond-based Microsoft may only recently have pushed out Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 to the end user, but it has long since been the public knowledge that the company is looking at moving towards more regular release cycles. The days of completely revamped offerings arriving every five years or so will soon be a thing of the past, and incremental, annual improvements will then ensue. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, then, that the software maker should be working on Windows 9 and Windows Phone 9, and as a recent job posting infers, the company is on the hunt for a few more specialist engineers to add to its team.
