has published several screenshots to what it claims is from the build 9834 of Windows 9. According to the leak screenshots, Microsoft labels the operating system “Windows Technical Preview”. The screenshots also show a desktop that includes some new flat design to match the Metro-style design in the Start screen. In the Windows Technical Preview build 9834, the charms seems to be fully integrated in the app title bar by clicking the a button on the left. Apps also show a border-less design, a new app switcher, the new virtual desktops, and, of course, the Smart menu returns to the bottom left corner of the screen.

Microsoft is expected to release a Threshold technical preview in September 30th during an special event. Two weeks ago, Microsoft China accidentally published a post hinting that the company will indeed name its next operating system “Windows 9”, but there still no official word.
