Satya Nadella has just revealed that the company is developing a completely new version of Windows.
Nadalla says we will see new windows very soon
The news came during the company's big event, Build 2021. We have long had a feeling that Microsoft is scrapping 10, and quite rightly so, Nadella said "next-generation Windows".
“Soon we will be sharing one of the most important updates to Windows over the last decade in order to unlock greater financial opportunities for developers and creators. I have been testing new Windows over the last few months and I am incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows.
Our promise is to create more opportunities for all Windows developers and welcome any creator looking for the most innovative, new, and open platform for building, distributing, and monetizing apps. We look forward to sharing more very soon ”.
One of the rumored interface enhancements is round corners in the apps, and now this has leaked in a screenshot of Edge:
Microsoft has big plans for the Windows Store
In other words, this is so finished that even the boss has tested it, and when he rounds off with "very soon" it is even more exciting.
The revelation comes in the wake of a job advertisement in January this year that revealed that there will be a completely new version of Windows.
It also sounds like the app ecosystem is the focus, which makes sense all the time Apple is criticized for a closed app system - here Microsoft probably sees the cut to upgrade not only the stores for end-users but also free to developers with an easier way to make money on their apps. The Windows Store is much better than it was at launch, but the platform has nothing on the App Store in terms of selection. Microsoft will need that if they want to make a mobile comeback.
A press conference is rumored next month which is supposed to be the venue for revelations of the new Olympics. Then it would have been nice with a brand new Surface product series also with an updated design language.
