Microsoft’s Chinese division is clearly focused on getting people to notice the upcoming Windows 9 OS. On a posting on Weibo, a Windows 9 logo was briefly posted before being taken down. However, the Chinese portal Cnbeta noticed the error and managed to get a screengrab of the logo.

Microsoft is planning to preview Windows 9, currently code-named “Project Threshold ” on September 30th. A technology preview will be released for developers around the time. The preview should show the various changes that Windows has been teasing including a revamped start menu and other UI changes that will be optimized for the desktop. Windows 9 is expected to go on retail early next year with a feature version that includes Cortana for the PC.
