The latest Windows 9 leaks show a lot of Linux-looking new features.
Microsoft issued invitations on Monday for a Sept. 30 event where it will unveil the next version of Windows, according to multiple online reports.
Microsoft's digital assistant, Cortana, is a mainstay of Windows Phone. For Windows 9, however, she'll be "just" an app.
A couple more Windows Phone features are apparently headed to Windows 9, with signs of Wi-Fi Sense and Storage Sense showing up in the latest leaked preview builds.
The new Windows is coming, and it looks a lot more like Windows.
A free Windows 9 'Threshold' would allow Microsoft to push more than half of all Windows 8 users to the upgrade within months, share data shows.
Microsoft's internal censors seem to be sleeping on the job this year. In June, the Surface Pro 3 manual included several references to a small-screen Surface Mini despite the fact that a small-screen Surface Mini was never actually released. And now, as rumors of Windows 9 swirl, Microsoft China appears to have confirmed the impending reveal.
Chinese authorities have issued a 20-day deadline for Microsoft to explain "compatibility problems" with its Windows and Office software, after previously warning the company not to obstruct an anti-monopoly investigation.
Windows XP users may now download a fourth service pack for the 13-year-old operating system, but it isn't coming from Microsoft.
