Microsoft, which is truly a tech giant, is holding a launch event on 24th June 2021. It is expected that they might announce the next generation of Windows. Invitations for the event rolled out after Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella teased the future of Windows at its keynote address at the Build 2021 developer conference.
The CEO said, “We will soon announce the significant updates of the Windows from the past decade which will create an economic opportunity for the developers and creators.”
The launch of the next generation of the Windows operating system is highly anticipated. Windows is the most dominant operating system on personal computers, but it needs a major overhaul. The company is working on the big Windows 10 user interface refresh, known as “Sun Valley ”, internally. A big UI refresh is expected to be rolled out during the Holiday 2021 season. The Sun Valley project will give Windows 10 a new Start menu and Taskbar layout, icons, sounds, app designs, and fluid animations. It’s also being said Microsoft could revamp the Windows App store.
“Following a year-long exploration and engaging in conversations with customers, we realized that the technology of Windows 10X could be useful in more ways and serve more customers than we originally imagined,” asserted John Cable, head of Windows servicing and delivery, in a recent blog post. “We concluded that the 10X technology shouldn’t just be confined to a subset of customers.”
Microsoft announced a new Windows 10 update last month with minor changes. Microsoft’s big Windows event will be streamed live for consumers starting at 11 am ET (or approx. 8:30 pm IST) on June 24. Both Satya Nadella and Panos Panay, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer, will be present at the event, according to tech site The Verge.
