Windows Operating System Naming Schedule set to Change

/ 6 years ago


It’s been said by Industry analysts that Microsoft are set to change their naming style for their soon-to-be-released next generation offering. Currently codenamed “Threshold”, the new operating system is set to drop the numbering system off the end of the scale – killing the publics current “Windows 9” naming protocol. This was discussed at a recent press conference, marking the possibility of Microsoft killing its long-time tradition.

Although we’ve seen non-numbered Windows editions in the past such as XP, VISTA and ME, it seemed logical to most that a number would succeed Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.

This naming change is said to symbolise an end of an era and a new stage of development for corporate giant Microsoft. They’ve moved CEO’s from Steve Ballmer to Satya Nadella and are said to be focusing more heavily on equipment sales service, rather than Windows PC software design. Nadella’s strategy for Microsoft moving forwards has claimed to put “cloud computing first”, marking a slight change in direction of focus.

If you haven’t picked it up by now, Microsoft’s new offering is set to be named simply “Windows”.
