Windows “Threshold”, the next big version of Windows, is coming, some even say a preview is due later this year and that the official Threshold announcement could happen as soon as WPC (July 13-17).

Lately there has been some discussion on MDL forums about whether or not the start screen and windowed apps Microsoft demoed at BUILD 2014 were a real build or just mock-ups.
