According to information obtained by outlet Deskmodder.de, Microsoft will start preparing Windows 12 in March. In the preparation phase, they are already looking for employees who can additionally support the team. SwiftOnSecurity also confirmed this information.
Originally, Windows 10 was supposed to be the “last” Windows, but a few months later it was revealed that Microsoft was working on Windows 11. And with that in mind, the next Windows has to be Windows 12, isn’t it? it not? And it looks like we’re headed in that direction, as Twitter user and award-winning Microsoft MVP security expert @SwiftOnSecurity says development on the new OS has already begun.
This was also confirmed by the desktop modifier website, which gives us a start date for the work.
Windows 12 is therefore on the waiting list, and several sources already claim that development will begin in March of this year.
Key items, some of which have already been released by Microsoft with Windows 11 or will be released with the Fall 2022 (“22H2”) Update, include:
Mandatory, a Microsoft account in Home and Pro security, TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot. Entirely new Base “Microsoft Pluto” security chip integration, nothing from other operating systems. Adopting Windows 10X approaches.
Future versions of Windows 11 Professional, such as Insider Preview and Home Edition, should require a Microsoft account and can no longer be installed offline.
Windows 11 is somehow essential, because everything must be adapted to the new times. Among the most important innovations is an improved task scheduler that makes PCs more efficient when Intel’s Alder Lake processors with hybrid architecture become mainstream. System security is also of great importance. Microsoft feels safe enough to sacrifice many of the older generation processors available (Intel Kaby Lake or earlier, AMD Ryzen 1000 or earlier).
So far, Windows 11 doesn’t seem to have particularly captured the hearts and minds of PC users. But Windows also has the legendary good version/bad version cycle. Because of this, and perhaps also due to pressure from system and component manufacturers to promote hardware upgrades, Microsoft may revert to regular major Windows release updates.
