Microsoft is preparing to unveil the next generation of its Windows operating system, just weeks after killing Windows 10X.
Microsoft has been working on reinventing Windows for some time, with Windows 10X a major part of that endeavor. The new version of Windows reportedly had a streamlined interface, abandoned legacy code and was being optimized for multi-screen devices. Unfortunately, the pandemic forced Microsoft to refocus on existing efforts to help meet customers immediate needs.
When Microsoft announced it was killing Windows 10X, the company said it would incorporate its design elements and features into existing products. It appears the world is about to see the fruit of those labors.
Microsoft has announced a Windows event on June 24, with the tagline: “Join us to see what’s next for Windows.” CEO Satya Nadella and Chief Product Officer Panos Panay will both be presenting at the event.
