Windows 10 is coming this year, Microsoft’s new OS is designed to unify multiple platforms and the software will be available on PCs, tablets, smartphones, notebooks and other devices.
Microsoft is calling Window 10 ‘the last version of Windows’, of course this doesn’t mean that Microsoft will not release future versions of Windows, although things will be slightly different than they have been in the past.
According to The Verge, Microsoft’s Jerry Nixon talked about the company’s future plans for their Windows platform and he had the following to say about it.
“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.”
They also received a statement from Microsoft, which you can see below, about the company’s plans for their Window 10 platform.
Recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “We aren’t speaking to future branding at this time, but customers can be confident Windows 10 will remain up-to-date and power a variety of devices from PCs to phones to Surface Hub to HoloLens and Xbox. We look forward to a long future of Windows innovations.”
It looks like Microsoft have plans to release more regular updates to their Windows software, rather than major releases every few years, so Windows 10 could be the last major release for the company, of course their plans on this could change in the future.
