Windows 9 (Windows TH?) Technical Preview website reveals 4GB download size
Microsoft is set to talk about the next version of Windows, codename Threshold and currently known as Windows 9, on Tuesday, September 30th. However, earlier today, Microsoft accidentally published the Windows Technical Preview website, giving us a quick peek at what to expect.
First, the website revealed the name “Windows TH”, which is most likely a placeholder until the official name is unveiled. Secondly, the Windows Technical Preview website revealed Microsoft’s focus for Enterprises which aims to “provide users with a familiar experience across multiple devices while enhancing security and manageability.”
The website (which has since been taken offline) featured download links for Windows Technical Preview (which were not active yet), indicating that there will be a x86 and x64 version available for download. While we had no doubt that Microsoft would offer a x86 and x64 version, we now know that they will weigh 3.16GB and 4.10GB respectively. So get ready for a large download!
We also caught a small glimpse at the new interface featuring the Start menu. You cant really see much from the small image, but it sure does look nice!
Might might release the Technical Preview on September 30th, or the following week, so stay tuned. In the mean time, we strongly urge you to be cautious of any download links or ISO files claiming to be the real deal. We will let you know once the Technical Preview is officially available for download.
Thanks for tipping us in our open forum, guys!
