Microsoft is celebrating its Build 2021 event and, although Satya Nadella, the leader of the company, has not given many details of future news, he has said that one of the most significant updates to Windows of the entire last decade is coming.
The fact that the CEO has talked about Windows and not specifically Windows 10 has raised suspicions that he could announce something that no one expects. Microsoft often refers to everything as “Windows 10”, and this language could suggest that the company is preparing a more significant change with the Windows brand than just the user interface.
Anyway, it is believed that Nadella was talking about Windows 10 Sun Valley, which is already known to want to come up with a lot of news. Recall that Windows 10X was supposed to come out this year before being canceled and since then the expectation has been focused on Windows 10 Sun Valley.
On the other hand, the Redmond is not anticipating its big plans with its operating system because the company is preparing to detail what is coming for its PC operating system in a separate meeting . Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella did reveal that he has been testing “the next generation of Windows” for the past few months.
According to the CEO’s statements, “we will soon share” the update that aims to provide greater economic opportunities for developers and creators. According to Nadella, “our promise is this: we will create more opportunities for all current Windows developers and welcome new creators “as the platform prepares to be open to create and distribute and monetize applications.”
News in an application store that will be more open
Additionally, Microsoft has been working on a new Windows app store in recent months, along with some significant changes to the operating system’s user interface, according to Nadella.
As The Verge recalls, this could include some significant changes to the Windows Store, allowing developers to submit any Windows application, also on third-party browsers such as Chrome or Firefox.
There are rumors that Microsoft might even allow third-party trading platforms on apps, so developers can avoid Microsoft’s 15% commission on apps and 12% on games.
The changes that are already expected in Windows 10
Just yesterday, WindowsLatest published that Microsoft is preparing for some “radical” changes to the design of Windows 10, ” according to a series of job announcements discovered.”
The job offer has been published by the team of the Interactive Experiences Platform of the American company, responsible for the user experience of Windows and its applications. And he explained “now we are on a journey of several years to revolutionize the Windows user experience platform by offering the best interactive experiences, showing cutting-edge hardware”.
No shared many details on “Sun Valley” so far but it is known that the new visual appearance have rounded edges, features similar to Windows 10X and folders colors beyond the traditional yellow.
