Windows 10 may possibly be the last iteration of the Windows Operating System we know so well
Microsoft is definitely working hard to make Windows 10 the best it can be, by making it free for the first year, and doing all they can to listen to users. It’s obvious that Microsoft are trying to push the operating system to as many devices as they can and it seems like they are going all out for Windows 10 – and we may know the reasoning behind that. It seems that Windows 10 might be Microsoft’s last Desktop OS, or at least its last Windows OS.
The Ignite conference was held this week and Jerry Nixon, a Developer at Microsoft, made the claim that Windows 10 will be the last Windows OS.
“Right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10.”
This doesn’t mean Windows will be dead after the release of Windows 10, far from it actually. There will still be a Windows Team, and Windows will still be updated. The OS will follow an Xbox or Android style update system, where minor updates will arrive incremently, however major changes will take place in the form of updates and not as a new OS. Microsoft has made each part of Windows as individual, updateable features, making it easier to push out changes for each individual element.
This is an interesting move on Microsoft, and how this turns out will be great to see.
