Do you believe Microsoft is going to rebrand Windows 10 to something else?

Poll closed May 30, 2021.
  1. Yes, "Windows 10" is already dated and getting long in the tooth.

    34.5%
  2. No chance, they are going to cling to the "Windows 10" brand for as long as they can.

    39.1%
  3. Meh... Don't care.

    Is it my impression or is Microsoft slowly sunsetting Windows 10?

    21H2 is going to be another Service Pack-style update for Vibranium...

    Is it really the end of Win10 in the Consumer space?

    Also, it "only" has 4 more years until EOL.. in 2025.

    if you kill legacy support then it will be like another Windows RT.

    I disagree, a lot under the hood has happen past year, just by comparing the legacy files and folders removed in the last year in 21*** you see many changes.

    For example the ISO for 21*** has removed stuff from XP and Vista upgrades that were still there.

    Now we still have a registry, Group Policies etc ?
    Yes, but step by step legacy is being removed from Windows.

    And let’s not forget now much better support for ARM, a new CPU scheduler coming for new Intel CPU, etc…

    Will we ever see all legacy going away?
    Probably not, but if they did would you still run Windows?
    Maybe not, I like being able to run some apps that were created 5 years ago.

    And that legacy can be said it’s what makes so much easier to use Windows for 99% for its users.

    And much of that legacy is just some files and folders on c:\Windows it’s not running in the background taking huge resources.

    I wonder if the "Pay to Upgrade" business model will be returning, if they are going back to Major Updates having new branding each time.

    I believe they are going to do like Apple does... One major Windows release per year... For free.

    Think people are getting too caught up in the naming. If people are expecting "Windows 11" to be some huge upgrade like going from Windows 8 to 10, I think they are going to be disappointed.

    As of 10/14/2025, all Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel releases will be End-Of-Life, as per Microsoft's own support lifecycle page.
    This includes all 'standard' SKUs (Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, Education and Enterprise).

    With only Enterprise LTSC variants remaining supported.

    Win8 to Win10 is not a huge update. Win7 to Win8 is more like it. :cool:
