Moreover, users who are to buy new computers have been waiting for an official announcement from Microsoft regarding the date of launch for Windows 11. But, is it really going to be anytime soon?
Will there be a new Windows?
If you’re willing to know the Windows 11 release date, it is very dishearting to know that Windows 11 may never come. According to the conversations held at Microsoft’s forum, Windows 10 is going to be the last version of Windows with a number system.
However, this doesn’t mean that this is the end of Windows as the company is more into developing an operating system that doesn’t have to go through all the newness every four to five years. This means you’d be witnessing a single ‘Windows’ without any number associating with it.
Talking about a new Windows, you may expect a few more updates for your Windows 10. The current version 1903 with build number 18362 has the support till December 8, 2020. The next version 1909 with build number 18363 may arrive at the beginning of the year 2021, which is supposed to have support for the next 18 months and 30 months for Home Pro and Enterprise variants respectively.
Once the support for version 1909 ends, there’s one more update is scheduled to be floated with the codename 20H1 and build number 18985. However, the release date and the support duration is yet to be officially announced. But, what happens after this update is still a question for all the Windows lovers.
Do you need special drivers to go with Windows 11?
The driver on a computer is responsible for establishing communication between the hardware and software in order to synchronize the tasks. When you update your Windows to the latest version, you may have experienced system failures. This happens when you’ve updated the software but still using the old driver, which doesn’t go along with the system.
You may choose to install a driver updater software on your PC that takes care of your system drivers automatically. Since searching for the latest driver update over the internet isn’t in the interest of everyone, getting software for the same would save you a lot of time and effort.
Well, that was all about the new Windows rumor that is widespread all over the internet. We hope to address all the doubts regarding the drivers required for Windows 11 and its release date. It is also important to know that these are all just assumptions and anticipations and no one knows what might come the next moment. If there’s going to be a new Microsoft Windows 11, you’re all covered.
