Chinese leaker posts screenshot confirming Windows 9 and Cloud Windows

Posted at 12 May 2014 19:40 CEST by Bavo Luysterborg

Well known Microsoft-leaker Faikee has posted a screenshot that confirms the existence of several upcoming Microsoft products including a cloud version of Windows called “Windows 365″.

Faikee posted the following screenshot earlier today, it mentions current Microsoft products like Office 2013 and Windows 8.1, but also reveals upcoming products like Windows 8.1 Update 2, Windows 9, Office 2015 and “Windows 365″. We are not entirely sure where Faikee got this screenshot, but since he has leaked many genuine information in the past, many consider him a reputable source for Microsoft rumors. Faikee The most interesting part of the screenshot is of course “Windows 365″ with status “Alpha based on Windows Core”. It looks like Microsoft is indeed working on a Windows as a Service subscription model, much like Office 365, like WZOR rumored before. Nobody knows what exactly Microsoft has planned for Windows 365, but it looks like it could be a monthly/annual subscription that makes sure you always get the latest version of Windows, possibly on multiple devices.

The screenshot also confirms that Microsoft is already compiling Windows (Server) 9 and Windows Phone 9  builds and that Microsoft is trying to create “One User Experience” and integrate more online services.

More Office details are revealed too, the screenshot confirms the existence of Office 2015 and Modern app versions of the current Office 2013 applications, codenamed “Gamini” according to the screenshot (although that looks like a typo, it should probably be “Gemini”).

Faikee declined to offer additional details, saying “I think I talked too much already“. He did however say “take it as rumor(repeat rumor): win9 will be free for win8.1 users.“, but you should really take that one with a grain of salt.

    Don't care if they pay users for their OS.
    Only a complete moron would use a Cloud based OS and Applications.
    (It will be a big sucess in New York, California and Ontario)
    Dohspi danya, Adios, Chow, stick it where the sun don't shine Gates and Co.
    Linux is where it will be at.

        I seriously doubt Windows 365 will be a true Cloud OS, I guess it'll just be a subscription for regular Windows, just like Office 365 is for Office. They'll still offer traditional Windows alongside 365.

          I guess MS is hellbent on destroying their OS dominance. They got a good start on it with W8 and Windows via the cloud will do more damage to their market share than anything they have screwed with so far.

            Well,I'm no fanboy of the cloud either,but it seems that Linux was embracing the cloud much earlier than M$....
            For example,Chrome OS,Peppermint ,JoliCloud......so,based on your comment,there are quite some Linux 'geeks' which are morons to your standards....

              As a fairly non-surgical OS user I have to say I was ok with XP and felt instinctively that Vista was a bad idea (turned out to be true), and eventually made the move to W7 which was like leaving the jungle and discovering Mozart.
              Why the heck they had to monkey with that instead of refining it beats me...so are they gonna get it right with W9? Somehow I have the feeling it´s change for the sake of change...they are out of ideas!

              Stick with functionality, security and stability, and skip the poorly tested gimmicks which no-one actually asked for.

              PS. Did I just read somewhere that NASA is dropping XP now and running Linux?

                I've got my head out of the cloud as I prefer my more natural desktop environment with a mouse , keyboard oh and did I forget to mention it still has a hard drive running windows XP LOL .

                  Once I checked out Microsoft store and seen the rent market model for Office 365 I knew something else might be around the corner.

                    I don't think anyone here really understands what Microsoft is actually trying to do. Although they seem to have lost their talent in designing the visual aspects of their systems, the biggest consequence (IMHO) will be what's happening behind those cartoonish colors. Your computers will be so determined to obey Microsoft, they will systematically disobey you.

                    This is what Microsoft calls Palladium, similar to Intel's Trusted Computing. Of course, there's no trust happening anywhere, so the name itself is a lie. For that reason, The Free Software Foundation has dubbed it "Treacherous computing, arguing that users will no longer have any real control over anything they do with their machines. Even something as simple as installing a program will require explicit permission.

                    Thank goodness for systems like GNU/Linux, ReactOS, and the BSD family.

                      Agreed.....
                      That's why I still keep my Q6600 around.....no GPT,UEFI,Intel antitheft and other hardware 'spies' around at that time of release....

                      Thank you for pointing me to ReactOs......
                      Too bad that it's still an alpha after all those years of developement....
                      Because it could be a REAL alternative to an M$ OS,as people could still use their familiar and beloved windows programs with it.....
                      I would gladly fork out some money for a 'final'.....

                        I turned in a DELL XPS 8700 for the exact same reason I told DELL to keep their garbage infested system I want my money back.

                          Oh and another to add to my post...not everyone can afford internet. Just because there is Internet not everyone can afford it. That would rule them out having 24/7 connection to the internet and that will kill the Cloud Windows right off the bat.

                            From the website of reactOS

                            "ReactOS Community Edition is a free, open source, Windows compatible, community-driven and community oriented Operating System.'


                            So will there be a paid version?

                                What did you expect? Windows has rarely, if ever, been user friendly.
