Microsoft has announced that the next edition of its Windows operating system will be unveiled on June 24.
According to a media invite, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay will showcase the new Windows experience.
Nadella discussed “the next generation of Windows” at the just finished ‘Build’ developer conference.
“Soon, we’ll share one of the most significant updates to Windows in the last decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators,” the Microsoft CEO said during his keynote address on May 25. “I’ve been self-hosting it for the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows,” he added.
“Our promise to you is this: today, we will create more opportunity for every Windows developer, and we will welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build, distribute, and monetise applications,” he said.
Microsoft has also announced that a lightweight and streamlined Windows 10X operating system will not be released.
The 10X operating system, billed as a competitor to Chrome OS, was supposed to launch alongside new dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo before the epidemic ravaged the world.
“Instead of bringing a product called Windows 10X to market in 2021, as we originally planned,” said John Cable, head of Windows servicing and delivery, in a blog post last month, “we are leveraging learnings from our journey thus far and accelerating the integration of key foundational 10X technology into other parts of Windows and products at the company.”
