No More New Windows in the Future !!

Windows 10 is the Last Version of Windows

Believe it or not, you're gonna face this unbelievable fact. With the reference of Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft employee, BBC has published a report on May 08, 2015 with the heading - Microsoft to stop producing Windows versions. Most of the Windows lovers around the world were shocked after hearing such a news.

Popular Versions of Windows 

Started from November 20, 1985, Microsoft has released more than 20 versions of Windows. But how many could you name if you're asked to make a list? I guess not more than 6 or 7. 

The most popular operating systems released by Microsoft are - 

  • Windows 95
  • Windows 98
  • Windows XP
  • Windows 7

Many users haven't even touch Windows Vista due to its security bugs and heavy system requirements. After XP, Windows 7 was the most successful one. Windows 8 and 8.1 are still struggling in the market. 

Personally, I like Windows 8 most. But there are some major changes in Windows 8 interface which make the users uncomfortable. Microsoft has upgraded Windows 8 to 8.1 to resolve some issues. But both of them are almost same.

When everyone was expecting Windows 9 to be introduced, Microsoft released Windows 10 Technical Preview. 

Windows 10 - The Last Version of Windows OS

IT Experts are talking a lot about this news. Though Microsoft hasn't declared anything officially, but it is planning to do so. Microsoft is planning to deliver Windows as a service. And time to time, it will bring innovations and updates for the users. 

People are now getting familiar with Windows 8 or 8.1 interface. At this point, again Windows 10 has come with old Start Menu. It has also introduced a mini start screen which looks really odd. Though you can get your Windows 8 Start Screen back.

I don't like some default settings of Windows 10. I've already used the Technical Preview version and now waiting for the Final Version. To be honest, Windows 10 Technical Preview has disappointed me! I think, Windows 8 is smarter than Windows 10.

Windows as a Single Platform

Probably, there will be no naming system like XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 10. Users will simply run an operating system - Windows.

Earlier, Microsoft used to release new version of Windows at a regular interval. To develop a new version, it had to spend a huge amount of money. And the company spent a huge amount of money for the marketing purpose.

Besides, Windows Support has to maintain different support system for different versions of Windows. If there is only one OS, it will be easier for them to concentrate and provide better service to the users. 

Microsoft is now working to finalize the Windows 10. Hopefully, we're getting this last version of Windows at the end of this year . . .
