“I haven’t been so excited about a new version of Windows since the release of Windows 95.” Microsoft VP of Windows 11
Microsoft has already announced the date of the official premiere of the new version of Windows – the event will take place on June 24. The company does not disclose any details about the system and is strictly monitored to ensure that no screenshots are leaked online prior to the event. According to rumors, on this day, Microsoft will introduce the Windows 10 21H2 update (codename – Sun Valley), but it is possible that the company will rename Windows 10 to Windows 11 with the release of this update.

I haven’t been this excited for a new version of @Windows since Windows 95! Although I don’t remember the box being that big. Make sure you save the date for June 24! #MicrosoftEvent https://t.co/j80Sh9rwos pic.twitter.com/XgfEI2qxqG

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft corporate vice president and head of Modern Life, Search & Devices, tweeted that “hasn’t been so excited about a new version of Windows since the release of Windows 95“. At the time of release, Windows 95 became a breakthrough version of the OS – it was in it that such traditional Windows interface elements as the desktop with icons, the taskbar and the Start menu appeared. Yusuf Mehdi’s post hints not only at the renaming of Windows 10 to Windows 11 (otherwise how to interpret the “new version of Windows”?), But also at significant changes in terms of the interface. Apparently, in Windows 11, if Sun Valley is released under this designation, everything will not be limited to the rounded corners of the windows.
