In a major shift, Microsoft may be preparing Windows 12 for 2024
Microsoft is changing the way it releases major versions of Windows once more, which could lead to the release of Windows 12 in 2024. According to Windows Central, Microsoft is returning to a three-year release cycle for Windows, which means the next major version of Windows will be released in 2024. It represents yet another significant shift in how Microsoft develops Windows.
With the release of Windows 10 in 2015, Microsoft abandoned its three-year cycle, prioritizing the concept of Windows as a service. Instead of a major feature release every three years in a new Windows release, Windows 10 was updated twice a year with major new features. After a Microsoft employee described Windows 10 as “the last version of Windows,” many Windows watchers assumed it would be the final big bang release of Windows.
