New Delhi: While we all gear up to finally see a Windows 10 icon on our devices, a Microsoft employee seems to dash all the future expectations by saying that it might be the last operating system by the software giant.
During the Ignite conference, Microsoft’s Jerry Nixon mentioned that the company was not planning any new Windows OS versions in the near term, which means that Windows 10 will be the last version of the Windows OS.
A report on Tech Times quotes Nixon saying, “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.”
Microsoft is not planning any new Windows OS versions in the near term, which means that Windows 10 will be its last version.
He said that Microsoft had been working on the base of Windows 10 covertly in the last year when it made live its Windows 8.1. After Windows 10, Microsoft will continue to push out updates for the latest OS, but will refrain from introducing new versions of the software.
A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed Nixon’s comments and said as Microsoft pushes for Windows to be delivered as a service, customers can be confident that Windows 10 will remain up-to-date. The company will shift from Patch Tuesdays- its once-a-week software update scheme- to an update sequence that is 24/7.
Users will also have an option of slow or fast rollouts which will allow them to either receive updates in bundles or as soon as Microsoft releases them one by one.
Microsoft Windows 10 launch has been scheduled for a release this summer. Tablets, mobiles, Xbox One, and HoloLens will receive the update at a later date.
