The event, billed as a chance to “hear about what’s next for Windows and the enterprise”, will be held on September 30.
The company yesterday sent out invitations for the event which experts say will talk in broad strokes about features aimed at corporate users for the next version of Windows, which people are informally calling “Windows 9”.
Windows 9 has sprung a dozen leaks, with videos showing off its new Start Menu functionality, along with the a number of business-facing features, like virtual desktops.
Screenshots and videos of the Windows Technical Preview have leaked over the past week, revealing the addition of a new Start menu, a virtual desktops feature, and a Notification Center.
The operating software was designed to work best on touchscreen devices, but some corporate-tech buyers said the software did not work well on the typical office-worker setup of a keyboard, mouse and non-touchscreen PC.
The software maker, however, is not expected to release preview of its updated version of Windows RT that may include Windows Phone components until early 2015.
