A "technical preview" build of Windows Threshold will be available in late September or early October, according to anonymous sources. Windows Threshold will be a stepping stone on the way to the full retail release of Windows 9 in the spring.
We've already heard whispers of what Windows Threshold will include, such as the return of the Start menu, Metro apps running in desktop, and axing the Charms menu. What "technical preview" really entails is up to interpretation, though it seems to suggest an early look for developers. Obviously we're very curious to see how Windows Phone ties into this pre-release schedule too.
How many of you guys are going to give the new technical preview a go, given the chance? Which features would you like to see in Threshold?
