The fragmentation of Windows versions in fact left room for a continuously updated version for free, like iOS and Android.
After 6 years of good and loyal service, the current Microsoft OS is therefore preparing to be replaced by a new version.
However, if Microsoft does present a new operating system on June 24, that does not mean the killing of Windows 10.
Time to see it coming
