Microsoft will be hosting a launch event for the next version of Windows this month where the company plans to announce one of the biggest updates to windows since the launch of Windows 10. In fact, the new update is set to become the next generation of the OS. This has raised all sorts of chatter centered around what the new version of Windows is going to be referred to, but everyone seems to be pretty set on “Windows 11”.
The event will be taking place on June 24th at 11 AM (ET), as seen below in a Tweet sent out by Microsoft. It is among a number of various (assumed) hints of 11 made recently (from the announced time of day to the animated window projecting two columns instead of a noticeable crosshair pattern on the ground).

There will be a noticeable facelift to Windows as Microsoft moves further away from visual remnants of the past.
From theme changes to start menu tweaks, and the loss of antiquated icons that have been in use for years. The new version of Windows, just like any new generation, is going to look a bit different from anything in the past. While still (apparently) leaning close to what Windows 10 brought to the world.
We will all know more when the event drops on the 24th. Until then, Microsoft is being quite cryptic about it all in order to raise hype within the community, market, and world. So we have a few weeks before we find out if the delivery matches up to the build-up.
