Rumor has it that Microsoft is preparing to roll out what it calls “the new Windows” in the near future.
This comes from the famous Microsoft WalkingCat leaker on Twitter, who tweeted that this “ new ” Windows – whatever it is – is coming next month. Although a follow-up tweet quickly clarified that “it’s happening, but maybe not next month, sorry.”
Correction: it happens, but maybe not next month, sorry 😿 https://t.co/vbEjaJ8if8February 26, 2021
Of course, that means that “ maybe ” it could still show up in March, and apparently March, but more likely April, are the months to watch for the debut of what is presumably Windows 10X, the new lightweight version of. Microsoft Windows.
The Windows 10X release date Microsoft is targeting is rumored to be Spring 2021, so April is a good fit for that.
Here is the sun?
However, some people on Twitter have said that it could refer to the Windows 10 redesign known as the “ Sun Valley ” project, which promises to be a big overhaul of the desktop interface, but it seems. less likely that it could be called the “ new Windows ” rather than the new see For windows.
Additionally, Sun Valley isn’t expected to be implemented until the second half of 2021 in Update H2, which will be this year’s big feature update – and obviously that’s far from happening (we don’t even have not seen minor update H1. arrive yet).
That said, the leak could indicate that Microsoft will be teasing Sun Valley somehow in the near future, but it still looks like Windows 10X is the most likely project referred to here.
If in fact all of this means anything at all – it’s an unsubstantiated rumor, then as always, treat with great caution.
Windows Latest, which spotted the above tweet, further adds that according to its sources Microsoft is expected to host a “ What’s New for Windows ” event in April or May, or maybe it will be a session during of the big Build 2021 conference (the latter has not yet had an announced schedule, but could arrive as early as May).
By the way, Microsoft has also reportedly hosted a “ What’s New for Games ” event that it plans to release on March 23, like Paul Thurrott noted on Twitter, and the Windows event will supposedly occur after that.
