The Future Of The PC OS Is What Microsoft Calls The Modern OS
Or at least that is according to Nick Parker, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Consumer and Device Sales at Computex 2019 in Taipei this week. In his official Microsoft blog from May 28, 2019 entitled Enabling innovation and opportunity on the Intelligent Edge, Parker details this vision of the "modern OS" which he also did at Computex 2019. Given the level of detail expressed at Computex 2019 and in Parker's blog it seems that Microsoft is already positioning itself for what may lie beyond Windows 10. That's not to say Microsoft's modern OS will replace Windows 10, but it does appear to digress from the "Universal Windows Platform" (which appears to have failed) and instead focuses mainly on a few current platforms while preparing for new form factors and devices and using seamless updates. It's important to note that Nick Parker did not mention Windows or any actual name when describing Microsoft's modern OS but there are quite a few aspects and details he did present with this new concept.
