Windows 9 Allegedly set for Release in April ’15

Windows 9 Allegedly set for Release in April ’15

Paul Thurrott from WinSuperSite claims Microsoft is preparing a wave of Updates, also involving the release of Windows 9, in April 2015. While the arrival of ‘Update 1’ for Windows 8.1 is still being awaited, the company has already set sights on the distant future. Microsoft will allegedly show off their new operating system, Windows 9, in their Build 2014 Developer Conference in April this year. They will also aim for a 2015 release, which is really fast considering the amount of time it takes to Debug an OS. According to Thurrott, Microsoft will use the release of Windows 9 as an opportunity to tweak some of the biggest criticisms toward Windows 8. A possible area of focus may include the introduction of “Metro 2.0,” which may see Microsoft change how users interact with the company’s tiles—an environment that many feel isn’t suited to the traditional mouse and keyboard environment. Even deeper than that, Microsoft could potentially better incorporate the desktop environment of Windows, and allow apps to float and run in separate windows, instead of always dominating the entire screen in the Tile interface. While the exact changes to Windows 9 are unclear, the company is expected to wrap up the final planning staged ahead of its Build conference, with development scheduled for June, giving the company about nine months before the new OS launches in April of next year. It’s been a difficult transition period for both users and Microsoft since Windows 8 launched, and it sounds as though Microsoft will put a lot of effort into finding a way to make the opposing approach of Tiles and desktop work more seamlessly. We’ll find out what to expect at Microsoft’s Build 2014 conference in just a few months. Hey, I’m Srivas, and I’m one of the new writers here at Tech4Geeks.

Tom Clancy’s ‘The Division’ coming out in 2014!

Tom Clancy’s – The Division is set to release in 2014 according to UBISOFT corporation. The game will be released for XBOX ONE, PlayStation 4 & PC exclusively. The game is planned to release in Winter 2014 according to UBISOFT. Tom Clancy’s The Division, is an open world third-person shooter MMORPG set in the destroyed ruins of a plague-ridden New York City. Ubisoft Massive, developers of parts of Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, will be the studio in charge of development of the game. Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter The Division is set to include a range of survival elements, including the need to search for clean water. Given the state of the world in the game, food and water will have much greater value. Players will be expected to go foraging for both, but they’ll serve as currency rather than be required for survival.A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, Division agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society. When society falls, your mission begins. The game engine for Tom Clancy Division, the upcoming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC game set in the Splinter Cell universe, promises to deliver an unprecedented level of realism. “Never before has a video game reached this level of detail,” Ubisoft said about its previously announced Snowdrop Engine in a new video released today during the Spike VGX Awards. The Snowdrop Engine is capable of capturing light realistically via a volumetric lighting system, which will help establish a more believable atmosphere, Ubisoft said. The game engine also powers The Division’s procedural destruction elements. In the video, bullets were shown being fired into police car as little bits of the vehicle flew off. The Snowdrop Engine also powers The Division’s day/night cycle and various weather elements. Watch the Gameplay video here:...
