Windows 10 to be the Last One of ‘Windows’

/ 9 years ago


At Microsoft Ignite conference this week, Microsoft’s developer Jerry Nixon stated “Right now we are releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we are all still working on Windows 10.” He also explained about the release of Windows 8.1 when Windows 10 was in works. As there is no secret update to Windows 10, employees can freely talk about future updates. Although it seems like the tech giant is killing off ‘Windows’ by not doing any future versions but the reality is quite different.

It’s all about Windows as a Service. Microsoft has changed the way it engineers and delivers Windows, and Windows 10 is the initial result. It is probably the end of the idea of version numbers. There will be just regular improvements and updates made to Windows 10 instead of big releases.

“Recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers,”confirmed a Microsoft spokesperson when approached by The Verge for confirming Nixon’s comments.

The results will however will be reflected after a few months. Microsoft is already said to have engineered apps like Xbox, Mail and even Office for regular monthly updates in Windows 10. This in an interesting step taken by Microsoft. Let us see how it turns out to be.

Thank you The Verge and Microsoft Ignite for providing us with this information.
