On The Road To Windows 9 – Once a new version of Windows is released to the public, and loaded on the upcoming computer models from manufacturers, Microsoft does not just sit back and do nothing for a few months.

Windows 9 is already being planned and developed by the software giant. To this day, there are still a lot of people holding on to Windows 7 with both hands as people somewhat fear Windows 8 and 8.1 for it’s somewhat major design changes. This is not to say no one is using Windows 8, a lot are in fact. If you have a Surface, from either generation, you are using Windows 8.

Microsoft made a mistake assuming everyone will be using the touch features Windows 8 provides.

One report ( says Microsoft didn’t realize quickly enough that hardly any businesses and organizations used touch-based computers to do their daily tasks.

One thing we can do is hope Microsoft will fix all of what was broken in Windows 8 and 8.1, and bring those fixes to Windows 9. For now, Windows 8 will do but not for everyone, and if possible, a lot of people, especially organizations will stick to Windows 7 for some time. Windows 7 is one Microsoft’s most stable operating system in a long time, better than XP ever was.

There have been some more rumors that Microsoft may release a public preview for Windows 9, just like it has done with Windows 7 and 8, later this year. Also, another rumor is Windows 9 could be launching in 2015.
