In the future of Windows the major releases we have been used to for thirty years may no longer exist, thanks to the development of a modular system with components that can be updated and replaced independently from the heart of Windows.
"Recent comments made during Ignite about Windows 10 reflect how Windows will be delivered as a service, bringing innovations and updates on an ongoing basis, with an ongoing value for our consumer and business customers"a Microsoft spokesperson pointed out to The Verge.
"We're not talking about the future of the brand right now, but customers can rest assured that Windows 10 will stay ahead and be the heart of a variety of devices, from PCs to phones, from Surface Hub to HoloLens to Xbox. We are looking forward to a long future of Windows innovations. "
"In modo simile al browser Chrome which is updated regularly with version numbers that no one pays attention to, Microsoft's approach probably will lead to a similar result. This is the idea behind Windows as a service and the fact that Windows 10 could be the last major release of Windows, "writes The Verge.
So if today we place so much importance on Windows 10 because it represents the fruit of years of development, in the future Windows 11 or Windows 12 could arrive in our PCs, tablets or smartphones without too much fuss. The number will be just a curiosity for the news, what will count will be the functions. And luckily we won't have to wait years for a better user experience. In conclusion, Windows is dead, long live Windows!
Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows - what does it mean?
