While we’ve seen some interesting updates to Windows over the years, as well as some more profound changes in some areas, not too radical a change.
However, this is about to change. This was confirmed by Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, announcing that Windows is preparing to receive one of the most important updates of the decade.
And no, it is not just a long-term project, as Nadella mentioned that he has been testing this update, or new version of Windows, in recent months, as mentioned in The Verge:
I have hosted it myself for the past few months and am incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows. Our promise to you is this: We will create more opportunities for all Windows developers today and welcome all creators looking for the most innovative, new and open platform to create, distribute and monetize applications.
The “next generation of Windows”
Nadella has not mentioned any details of this new Windows for users, but has made it clear that it will be a space where developers and creators will have an important place. So we could see radical changes in the dynamics of the app store, which encourages developers to bet on creating apps for Windows.
On the other hand, it is expected that the “radical visual rejuvenation” of Windows, which was seen in one of the job announcements published by Microsoft, will come true. We may finally see that Windows stops inheriting the typical design of previous versions and bet on a radical visual change.
At the moment, we can only speculate what this big update will bring as they haven’t mentioned any big details, beyond the promise to the developers. Satya Nadella said that we would have more information shortly, so we will have to wait to find out where the big changes coming to Windows will lead.
