Microsoft has officially teased that the next-generation of Windows operating system (expected to be Windows 11) will be unveiled by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella on June 24th at 11AM ET in a virtual event.
Microsoft post a short video on social media that shows a new Windows Logo, with light shining through the window in two vertical bars creating an outline that looks much like the number 11 (with horizontal bars of the window ignored on purpose).
Microsoft executive Yusuf Mehdi also posted on Twitter mentioning that “I haven’t been this excited for a new version of Windows since Windows 95!” confirming that the event will focus majorly on the new Windows version.
Microsoft has been working on something codenamed Sun Valley that the company has been referring to a sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows that is expected to offer some changes seen in the Windows 10X (scrapped before it arrived).
The new changes are expected to include a fresh Start menu, new system icons and improvements to file explorer. The new update will also bring updates to pre-installed windows applications. Microsoft is expected to introduce a new app store for windows that promises to “unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators” with Windows.
