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

  1. Yes, "Windows 10" is already dated and getting long in the tooth.

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

    Hmm I agree, well for the searches I made and even made several implementations as a test is clear I could deduce that it really is a super Android in my view So the dilemma is: Common User carries a few tons of unnecessary things and for the user with a little technical knowledge will have a great job ahead so that the operating system gets "usable" is this only my 2 cents ...;)

    A name change is pretty insufficient unless there are some major under the hood changes.
    I'd like to see far less required reboots, more modularity, a newer robust system for applying updates and update recovery/rollback.

    That might be a bit too much to ask for though lol. :)

    From what little info I've seen in this thread and a quick internet search I've come to a few conclusions:
    1) Sun Valley is not just a new Win10 build. It's a retooling more akin to a new windows version like Win11 or something
    2) There might be a heavy emphasis on online features meaning this would be an absolute garbage OS for anyone who cares about privacy
    3) From what little pictures I saw it seemed to be that they were really trying to redesign the UI to be more user-friendly for touch-screens and laptops

    Hopefully not an annual subscription model.

    As that would suck hard.

    There is one thing worse than paying once, paying over and over lol.

    *IF* Microsoft starts annual subscription model for Windows next, that would be the biggest mistake. It would effectively erode Windows Mindshare and Marketshare day by day until they go the Blackberry way... Or Users will continue to stick to Windows 10 like they did with XP and 7. Either way, that's a loss for Microsoft.

    The main objective here is to keep consumers hooked to free Windows and make money from 20-30% store apps commission. That's why all the talks about revamping Windows Store and better APIs for developers.

    Actually in the past we didn't start threads about non existing OS's until they got published and the "sun valley" thread already exists.

    Windows 11 will feature new CPU scheduler optimized for Alder Lake(Big/Little cores).

    I think Windows 11 will have more ads than a s***ty cheaply made android app.
    It seems that there will be a seperate version of Windows for businesses (19044) so it is likely that Windows 11 will not have anti-spook, anti-bloat and anti-ad reg keys and group policies that make Windows 10 bearable.

    Microsoft has learnt something new to be released as win11. They are testing its installation on very very cheap market Laptaps so that this OS will go very very smoothly on newer hardware. They are learning from negative comments on win10 anywhere in this online world. The rest Win11 will let know anybody how good is it.
