Microsoft will reveal the next generation of Windows on June 24th

Written by Stuart Thomas on Thu, Jun 3, 2021 11:43 AM

As PC gamers most of us will be rocking the Windows Operating System, and considering the latest version, Windows 10, is now 6 years old we’re pretty much due an update. Thankfully Microsoft will be showcasing just that with the “next generation” of Windows to be revealed on June 24th.

Whether you’re on Windows 10, Windows 7, or even earlier, the prospect of the next version of Windows is exciting to say the least. Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella recently said that the “next generation of Windows” is currently in development, and our first look at it will begin during a livestream on June 24th.

There’s very little detail on what we can expect for Windows 11 (or whatever Microsoft will call it now, maybe ‘Windows Next’?), but Nadella did say that it is “one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade” during the recent Microsoft Build Conference. Of course, whether anyone will actually update this time is another question.

You can tune into the Microsoft Event on June 24th for your first look at the next generation of Windows here. The reveal will start at 8am PT for those on the US East Coast like Los Angeles, or 11am ET for those on the US East Coast like New York. For the UK that will be 4pm, or 5pm for residents in Central Europe. And for those living in Australia you can tune in at 1am on June 25th.

What do you think? Are you excited for the next generation of Windows? Which version are you using now? And will you update to the new version when it’s out? Or will you wait a while first? Let us know!

Are you interested in the next generation of Windows?

Which OS do you currently game on the most?

What Windows version do you have now?

Will you upgrade to the next Windows version?

Hey now, there's more then 10 Linux users here.


Not including me. I've been in and out of Linux and its honestly really nice. But I prefer using Windows 10 despite Microsoft being really annoying with it.

All the signs are pointing to Windows 11.


And it will be a big difference.

Unlikely....
It is probable that MS will do some under the hood changes (I heard scheduling might be the main focus ATM).

There's been leaks pointing to a major UI improvement. Apparently there won't be anymore design inconsistency.

For me that falls under the category; I'll believe it when I see it.

It is apparently a big difference, but it's still Windows 10.

Feels a lot like this will be interesting regardless of which direction it goes into... :-D


As for upgrading, I will see, likely I will upgrade to it few months after release, just like I did with Win10. Though it would be nice to see some exciting new feature. Maybe even upgrade that removes mobile phone store and actually adds PC store, like PC worthy marketplace... :-D

I literally just got into Win10 last year because a few games required it. When games require the new version then I'll move.

idk win 10 serves and served me well, no issues since 2015 or 2016 cant remember when i first started using it, in fact windows 10 has become much better with driver management when you change motherboards. While win 7 used to spaz out if you do major hardware upgrade, it was good but i dont really miss it

I just really hope for design consistency, because damn, it's so inconsistent. Want to experience it yourself? Right click on: the desktop (or explorer), the taskbar and in Edge.

Every update fixes as much things as they break. And here i am with a 1440p monitor and a 4k tv and i cant duplicate them with their native resolution i need to step down to 1440p...

Playing devils advocate here. In order to duplicate 1440p to 4k windows would have to do some upscaling work and that could probably lead to some wonkiness and would take some PC resources. It's probably much easier to duplicate 1 to 1 instead of doing background work for it.

The amount of bugs and glitches the windows display options have one might think that no one ever thought of connecting 2 monitors to a pc before. The extra resource usage doesnt really bother me i would love have the option when gaming i always switch to single display.

Didn't they say that Windows 10 was the "final" version, and they'll only bring updates to it?

I'd like official support for the classic windows 7 start menu and search. That way I won't have to use OpenShell (previously ClassicShell).
And ofcourse them to stop destroying the Control Panel and return all features there.
