Washington: Software giant Microsoft is likely to release an update to its new operating system Windows 8.
The company first unveiled the tablet-centric Windows 8 OS at a conference on Sept. 11, 2011.
At the upcoming event, scheduled for June 26-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the company will discuss the future of the software, said one Microsoft veep, Fox News reports.
According to the report, Steve Guggenheimer, Microsoft's corporate vice president and chief evangelist, wrote in a blog post that “a Build, we’ll share updates and talk about what’s next for Windows.’
Mary Jo Foley, who covers Microsoft technology for ZDNet, said the company is supposedly aiming to release the software this summer.
“There's also a new snap view which allows two windows to be snapped side-by-side so that each takes up half the size of the display, as well as an option to have four apps displayed simultaneously. (If that four-app view ends up making it into Blue, I'll be very happy, as I really miss real windowing in Windows 8.),” he said.
