will be officially unveiled this week, and so we figured it was high time to go through all of the rumors, leaks, and official comments from Microsoft to work out Windows 9′s new features and changes. Most of the new features and changes that you read here are reliably sourced, but we will of course update the story with Windows 9′s official features after the Technical Preview is unveiled on September 30.More Details at

Updated: In the last few days, it has emerged that Windows 9 will probably be a free upgrade from Windows 8 — and there might even be a “special offer” to encourage old Windows XP users to finally make the jump to a modern OS — but more on that later.
After the very poor response to Windows 8, and the bitter taste it left in the mouths of millions of users, Windows 9 is a very important release for Microsoft. On the one hand, it needs to rectify Windows 8′s wrongs and offer normal PC users a reason to upgrade from Windows XP or 7. On the other hand, Microsoft continues to lose ground in the mobile sector as well. Windows 9 will actually have to be the jack of all trades, rather than Windows 8′s rather ignominious status as the master of none. How will Microsoft do this? Well, let’s take a look.Windows 9 for desktop and laptop
usersThe Start menu returns.
After a few years of claiming that the Metro-style Start screen was just as good for mouse-and-keyboard use as touchscreen use, Microsoft has finally backed down. Windows 9 will have a Start menu on the Desktop; the left side will look a lot like the standard Windows 7 Start menu, but the right side will have the option of being populated with Metro-style live tiles. The left side of the menu will adopt a new Metro-like look, too — though you may be able to configure it to look like the good ol’ Windows 7 Start menu.
Virtual desktops. In Windows 9, you will have the option of using virtual desktops. Right now you just have one desktop per monitor — but with virtual desktops, you can switch between as many desktops as you like. This is a popular power user feature that has been present on some Linux window managers and via third-party Windows tools for years — but now it’ll be native in Windows 9.Metro apps on the Desktop.
Rather than forcing you into the full-screen Metro interface, Windows 9 will let you run Metro apps on the Desktop in a window. In theory this will mean that mouse-and-keyboard users might now actually use Metro apps, which in turn might kickstart the arrival of some better apps in the Windows Store. Or not.Some useful Links:Must See
