Windows 11 could be the name of the next generation of Microsoft’s desktop operating system – at least some indications and rumors suggest it and undermine the company’s previous statements that it does not want to increase the number of Windows any further.
We already know Microsoft will introduce the “next generation of Windows” on June 24th, a few months before the Sun Valley release it wants, which is due out at the end of the year and which promises major changes to the interface. and overall form.
So is it possible that this isn’t a simple Windows 10 21H2 update as originally thought, but a neat jump in version numbers? Are we really facing Windows 11 and what are its signs?
Much of the speculation is based on the observation that in the teaser for the above event, light shines through a window and creates two vertical bars on the floor – like a fat “11” – without horizontal bars.

On the one hand, visible and light could have been presented in the same way and had no meaning – on the other hand, time, at 11 am, speaks in favor of the 11th principle. It’s also not a specific time for Microsoft Events.
ledge Turns out that other Microsoft bosses are adding fuel to the rumours. so writing For example, Yusuf Mehdi, VP of Modern Life Search and Devices Group: “I haven’t waited that long for a new version of Windows since Windows 95.”
We would like to state that he is looking forward to “a newer version of Windows”, not “of Windows”. 10“.
In addition, there are some other theories with a touch of aluminum foil, such as the “Sun Valley” code name has an 11 – Sun Va11ey.
So what do we do with it? As we mentioned at the beginning, Microsoft has made it clear in the past that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows and not Windows 11 (or anything like Windows 365).
Microsoft, on the other hand, has also promised to give good names to the big Windows 10 updates – like the Creators Update. However, at some point these plans were abandoned and the decision was made to use dates only.
Besides, things have to change at some point, right? Windows 10 certainly won’t last forever, but six years is more than the average life expectancy of a Windows version.
We’ll know more in a few weeks, but for now we think Windows 11 is unlikely, despite hints and leaks – not least because macOS 12 will be released soon and Microsoft may be trampling on more numbers .
We think it’s more likely that Microsoft will simply rename the operating system to “Windows” and abandon the numbering system altogether—in the same way that the Surface Pro 5 was simply called the Surface Pro.
So when Windows 10 gets renamed — whether it’s Windows 11, just Windows, or something completely different like Windows 365 — the question arises: Will it be a free upgrade to Windows 10? yes or?
