We aren't sure what to make of this story, but it's worth sharing regardless. Supposedly, a "well known" hacker with a good track record of predicting moves from Microsoft has recently suggested that Microsoft is so fed up with the poor success of Windows 8, they plan to launch Windows 9 as early as October of this year. We aren't sure how good a hacker can be if he is "well known" but regardless, this one supposedly has insider info at Microsoft. Here's a quote with more of the details,
“WZor” is a well-known hacker believed to have sources inside Microsoft, and he has shared details about Microsoft’s plans in the past that have indeed been accurate. Following the report that Microsoft intends to launch Windows 9 in April, the hacker took to Twitter to claim that the stated timeframe is way off.
“Win 9 released in April 2015? No! No! No!” WZor wrote in a tweet picked up by Windows Phone Central. Instead, he says that the Windows 9 RTM build, which is a final software version released early to PC manufacturers so they can install it on their new PCs and get ready to ship them, will be issued in October.
Take this one with several grains of salt, but if it turns out to be true, it would be a pretty big shakeup.
