Microsoft to draw the curtains on Windows as we know it
They Say that every journey has an end. Microsoft is planning to change the shape of its operating system entirely after Windows 10 according to a Jerry Nixon, one of the Microsoft Development Executive. Instead of bringing out a new version after every update, they will bring changes and innovations to the windows platform on a continuous basis. This means that there may never be a Windows 11 and Windows 10 will be the last of its kind.
According to Microsoft, however they are yet to decide what they would name the Windows versions after Windows 10. According to another source, vice president of a research firm named Gartner who monitors Microsoft mentioned that there may not be a Windows 11. The biggest problem in launching a standalone new version every 2 or 3 years is the pressure for the developers to bring something new and advanced to the customers. Customers always expect a big and innovative change in every next operating system compared to the previous. Another issue with this is to convince and shift the customers to the new version of Windows after a short period of 3 years every time which involves a lot of effort and spending on marketing campaigns.
While working on this new idea, Microsoft can cut their marketing expenses and can focus mainly on product quality in the form of new updates and new features instead of launching an entire new version. Customers wouldn’t have to buy a new version but instead would just need to install and update new features and updates in order to keep their OS updated. This would be a start of new era in the history of Microsoft Windows
