has announced
 an event taking place on June 24 where it will unveil the next
generation of Windows. The event will be online, and begin at 11AM
Eastern Time. The company
is expected to unveil a new user interface and feature set for Windows,
and possibly position this new version of Windows as
"Windows 11."

The company has been working on a complete rejuvenation of the Windows
Desktop user interface (codenamed
Sun Valley)
for some time, and this event will be where the company finally shows
off what it's been building. Windows 10 has been the latest version of
Windows for
six years, and has remained much the same.

Sun Valley is expected to deliver a new Start menu and Taskbar layout,
icons, sounds, app designs, and fluid animations. Microsoft may take
this user experience
rejuvenation effort as a chance to ship a "new" version of Windows, and
we think it could possibly fall under the
Windows 11
 moniker. We'll have to wait and see what Microsoft actually does at
the event on June 24.

Microsoft recently canceled plans to ship a new version of Windows called
Windows 10X,
which was built on a modern version of the OS called Windows Core OS.
Windows 10X was first going to ship on dual-screen PCs like the Surface
Neo before
being repositioned as a platform that would compete against Chromebooks
in the low-end market.

The company has announced that it will be bringing the best of Windows
10X to the full version of Windows now that 10X isn't coming. Perhaps
we'll see
the result of that at this event on June 24.

We're on the cusp of seeing the biggest Windows news drop in a long
time. Could it be the unveiling of Windows 11, and if it is, is that an
OS name that
excites you?
