Along with these, There will also be brand new windows store with new look. As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella mentioned in Developer Conference that this will unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators .
There are some huge changes in privacy policies such as :
- Developers can submit unpackaged Win32 apps to the store.
- They can host apps and updates on their own CDN (Content Delivery Network).
- They can use third-party commerce platforms in the apps.
Is it Windows 11 ?
Back In 2015, Microsoft said that this will be the last version of Windows . And they will continue to work and improve this version. It is really unlikely that Microsoft will name it Windows 11 unless it doesn’t have any plan to create mess.
When Microsoft cancelled Windows 10X they said that they will not release it as a new product , But they will use its features into other products and parts of Windows. And this update contains many features of Windows 10X. So let’s wait till October 2021 to see how people responds to “The Next-Generation of Windows”. Are you waiting for the Sun Valley update?
