Yep, this sounds alarming for sure. Windows 10 is regarded as the new hope for the American tech giant Microsoft, promising to be a bettered version of the present Windows 8.1, which has resolved some issues signaled both by tech experts and common consumers regarding the Windows 8, and they have really started countless discussions all over the world wide web. So Windows 10, apart from skipping the ninth title of the Windows operating systems series, has an immense responsibility both as a revenue provider for the American tech giant and from the point of view of Microsoft`s latest actions with their operating systems as well. Still, a recent statement revealed by one of the officials at Microsoft, Jerry Nixon, sounded very alarming when it reached internet. From the words of Jerry Nixon, one could get the idea that Windows 10 could be the last version of Windows.
“Right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10“
Jerry Nixon has said in a statement. And this sounds very sad. It sounds like getting old.
Still, some of the tech analysts that are in connection to the activity of the American tech giant Microsoft have commented on the matter. According to them, the announcement by Nixon may be ambiguous and could lead to nostalgia, but it might just not be the case that Windows 10 will end what is one of the most famous operating system series that the history has ever come to know.
According to the tech experts, the strategy of Microsoft releasing their most recent operating systems might be the key to understand Nixon`s statement. Think about 8.1. It is true, it was not a brand new version of Windows, but it was the start of what some call the new strategy of offering OSs at Microsoft. Updating your controversial 8.0 to 8.1 just by using the internet.
This will also be the case for Windows 10. The upcoming operating system by Microsoft will be released at the end of July, but it will be available for download as well. And for free, if you are a customer who decides to update his current Windows to 10 in the first 12 months since the release.
This may represent a turning point for the American tech giant. Until now, Microsoft would launch its opertaing systems and they would hit the stores and the customers would go to the shops and purchase them. From now on, we may not see the end of Windows per se, but the end of Windows as we know it.
