We might not get our first taste of Windows 9 until early next year

Windows 9 Preview Release Date

The first Windows 9 Preview version might not be released until either February or March 2015, a source familiar with Microsoft’s plans reports. Chinese leaker FaiKee has posted a screenshot on the My Digital Life forums that seems to indicate that the Windows 9 Preview Release won’t arrive until early next year.

“OK, seems WZor’s [another source familiar with Windows plans] ‘5/15 win9 trial version’ is not going to happen…” FaiKee said. “So here’s the part below my last screenshot,” he added, posting an image that reads “Windows 9 Windows Preview Release @ 2015 02-03.”

“If it’s real (couldn’t see why it isn’t), then you could scrap all previous Win9 release speculations,” he said.

The same source posted an earlier screenshot on Neowin, which he referred to in the note above, posted on My Digital Life. That image revealed that Microsoft may be working on a cloud-based version of its operating system that could be sold as Windows 365. It would supposedly sell via a subscription model similar to Office 365, according to rumors. When posting that screenshot, however, FaiKee did not reveal any details about a potential Windows 9 launch.

The screenshot that shows the purported Windows 9 Preview release schedule follows below.
