WP Central writes Microsoft France President Alain Crozier accidentally revealed that Windows 9 will be launched next week. The software giant is now trying to do some back pedaling by clarifying that Crozier was referencing to next week's event that will show the future of Windows and that there is no such thing as Windows 9.
lain Crozier, the President of Microsoft France, today became the first executive in the company to use the term "Windows 9" publicly to describe the next version of Windows.
Crozier made the statement as part of a company press event today that was live-streamed and is now available to watch on the Microsoft France website. During his presentation, he said, "Last year we had Windows 8. In the next few minutes, the next few days, we'll be releasing Windows 9." Crozier is likely referring to the press event scheduled to be held September 30, a week from today, in San Francisco, where the company is supposed to offer the first details on the next version of Windows and how it will help its enterprise customers.
