A new rumor about the next version of Windows, code named "Threshold", claims that Microsoft's current internal builds of the operating system may offer users a faster way to update the software.

According to Neowin, using unnamed sources, users of the current version can upgrade to future builds with just one button click. The feature is built into the UI of the operating system and will not require a total re-installation of Threshold. which should make updating the OS much faster than the current Windows Update system that's used for Windows 7 and 8/8.1.

The story points out that Microsoft could remove this feature when the final version of Threshold, which may or may not be officially called Windows 9, is released. As previously rumored, Microsoft is expected to launch a technical preview of Threshold sometime this fall, with one report claiming it could happen on September 30th.

What do you think about the prospect of updating Windows in a far faster fashion than before?
