Everyone loves a good tech rumor, right? More so, everyone loves a good tech rumor regarding future releases of Microsoft's Windows operating system. Today, website WinBeta has managed to beat all the odds and gain insider information on what we might expect to see in Windows 9 as well as Windows 10. Of course, with Windows 8.1 not even officially released to the public, it would be best to take everything you're about to read with a very fine grain of salt.




The leaks come from a source simply named "WZOR" that the website claims has been correct on countless Microsoft leaks in the past. The mysterious--and apparently infamous--WZOR states that Windows 9 will be more closely related to Windows 7 than it will to Windows 8, but no explicit details were given. He says that Windows 9 will continue the Aero-based desktop OS that so many of us techies missed gratefully.


"According to WZOR, Windows 9 will be similar to the desktop OS we know today. He claims that Microsoft is planning to bring the old Aero interface back, but not as we all know it. That's all he teases regarding the Aero interface, but he also claims that Windows 9 will make an appearance in a years time, much sooner than expected," reads the WinBeta article.


He goes on to state that Windows 10 could arrive in conceptual form as early as September 1, 2013, but again, remember that this is an unconfirmed rumor from an unvetted source. No other details were given on what Windows 10 will be like, but I'm sure as the coming months press on we will hear more.
