Microsoft has announced that it is launching the next version of Windows on June 24. The next-gen Windows will bring major changes in its UI and be more developer-friendly as per Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella.
Satya Nadella the CEO of Microsoft, speaking at the company’s annual event Build 2021, stated that the company was working on its latest OS for months. He claims that the new iteration “will bring one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators”.
The CEO further suggested the new OS will be ideal for “every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications.”
The new OS will replace its current Windows 10 which has been the default platform since its inception in 2014.
The CEO has hinted at monumental changes in the upcoming upgrade. The upcoming OS will become developer-friendly to invite more apps and games for the users.
Windows PCs will likely see an overhaul in its app store. The changes will allow developers to submit various apps, browsers, and games with ease.
There is also a rumor that Microsoft could bring in a battery usage chart, news, and interest widget in the taskbar. There could be major changes for the default Edge browser with the latest OS as well.
Microsoft announced its current Windows 10 on 30 September 2014. In its seven years of operation, the OS has managed to become the most used on Windows PCs.
Since its announcement, Microsoft rolled out the win10 to existing users via Windows Updates, while new PCs came with it by default. The company has pushed two major updates every year to Win10 users after it became widely available in 2015.
As per Statcounter, Windows 10 powers 78.89% of Windows PCs in the world, followed by Windows 7 at 15.52%. Its infamous Windows Vista has around 0.25% Windows share on PCs.
Microsoft is now headed for the next course with the latest OS. The seven years reign of Windows 10 is coming to a halt with the next venture of its successor. Let’s hope Microsoft will further improve the PC experience and maintain its legacy.
