Microsoft fans can expect ‘new things’ for Windows 10 in 2021,
according to CEO Satya Nadella, who teased upcoming
announcements during the company’s Build 2021 developer
During the developer conference, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella
confirmed that he’s been self-hosting the next version of
Windows, which is ” extremely significant” and it’s likely that
he’s referring to the
Sun Valley Update. This new operating system version is
expected to debut in the fall of this year.
“Across all the opportunities I’ve highlighted today, Windows
is implicit. It’s never been more important. Windows 10 is used
by more than 1.3 billion people to work, learn, connect,”
Naturally, Nadella didn’t elaborate on what Microsoft has
planned for Windows 10. That will have to wait for the next
event, which is likely to happen in June. But he confirmed that
the next of Windows is in the works and it’s going to be
incredible. In fact, Microsoft claims that it would be one of
the most significant updates to Windows in the past decade.
“Soon we will share one of the most significant updates of
Windows of the past decade, to unlock greater economic
opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting
it over the past several months and I’m incredibly excited
about the next generation of Windows,” Nadella said.
The future of Windows
Microsoft saw Surface and Windows 10 growth in its latest
earnings, and that trend should continue as it broadens its
computers with processors like ARM-based Snapdragon.
Microsoft is rumoured to be readying the Windows 10 Sun Valley
Update with a brand new Start Menu, Action Center, Taskbar
experience, rounded corners and faster animations. In the
coming months, Microsoft’s native apps will also the company’s
new design guidelines and enable support for rounded corners.
The company is also building new solutions for developers, and
that’s something that Microsoft believes the move will empower
the company to maintain its presence in the computer market.
