Microsoft has been teasing a “next generation” of Windows for months now, but new hints suggest the company isn’t just preparing an update to its existing Windows 10 software, but a new, numbered version of the operating system: Windows 11.


The software giant announced a new Windows event for June 24th yesterday, promising to show “what’s next for Windows.” The event invite included an image of what looks like a new Windows logo, with light shining through the window in only two vertical bars, creating an outline that looks very much like the number 11. Microsoft followed up with an animated version of this image, making it clear the company intentionally ignored the horizontal bars.

Microsoft’s Windows event also starts at 11AM ET, not the usual start time for typical Windows and Surface events. Following the event invite, Microsoft exec Yusuf Mehdi said he hasn’t “been this excited for a new version of Windows since Windows 95!” It’s the first time we’ve heard Microsoft specifically mention a “new version” of Windows is on the way.

The event invite also comes just a week after.............

This article is from 2015 but the main point is correct. Anyway, I'm excited to see what they do with it.
Yes, I think it could be good too. I linked to that Windows 11 article because of the mentions in this thread where we'd felt Microsoft had said in the past that there would never be a Windows 11. We can all change our minds, even MS.

I wouldn't throw away the possibility of being called Windows 11 just yet. Evan Blass confirmed in a tweet, it will be called Windows 11.


Also, Microsoft left some obvious clues in their announcement; like the event starting at 11 AM (not the usual time their events start) or posting the video of light going through the Windows logo without horizontal line in the shadow.

Ms being Ms we can't just throw away the possibility of windows 11, there is every chance that they will name it "windows 11" and say this is "a completely new os and a 200% improvement over windows 10" and there wont be free upgrade but a paid update. So lets wait and see.
