It has been confirmed by Microsoft that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows operating system.
Jerry Nixon, a development executive, said in a Microsoft’s Ignite conference speech held in Chicago this week that Windows 10 would be the “last version” of the leading desktop software.
Instead of new major stand-alone release, the product will be enhanced in regular installments and automated updates, much similar to apps and browsers.
This decision has been made as part of the company’s effort to rebrand “Windows as a service.”
Microsoft has big plans relating to the future of Windows 10 and its platform and we’re just now starting to see that perspective take shape. Rolling updates with an Insider preview program to examine new features is a great way to make sure Windows 10 stays nimble and competitive going forward.
Microsoft Windows 10 is expected as a free download later this year, with various versions for all devices, including Personal Computers, smartphones, tablets, and XBOX One.
