Get Ready for the Next Windows Operating System

Microsoft knows when you've run out of insults and trash talk for Windows 8/8.1, so they figure it’s just about time to give you a new target to shoot at. Behold Threshold, or as it will be known later, Windows 9 or whatever final name lands on Microsoft’s next operating system.

In some ways, the most interesting thing about Threshold is how it recasts Windows 8 as the next Vista. It's an acknowledgment that what came before didn't work, and didn't resonate with customers.
