Microsoft to stop producing Windows versions

Windows 10 is going to be the last major revision of the operating system. Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft development executive, said in a conference speech this week that Windows 10 would be the “last version” of the dominant desktop software. His comments were echoed by Microsoft which said it would update Windows in future in an “ongoing manner”. Instead of new stand-alone versions, Windows 10 would be improved in regular instalments, the firm said. Mr Nixon made his comments during Microsoft’s Ignite conference held in Chicago this week. In a statement, Microsoft said Mr Nixon’s comments reflected a change in the way that it made its software. “Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner,” it said, adding that it expected there to be a “long future” for Windows. Source: Microsoft to stop producing Windows versions
