A 1000 hand wrings? Really? What a... you are. Just search windows 11 and you will see MS is releasing more than just another update. No evidence it is going to be called 11 though.

Microsoft is going to show off
what's next for Windows during a public event at 11am ET on June 24 . This will be the event where Microsoft will show off and talk about the "new Windows"
variant that many of us Microsoft watchers have been writing about for a number of months.

Last week, during Microsoft's Build 2021 conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said
Microsoft would share more "soon" about the next Windows . He said it would be "the most significant updates of Windows of the past decade." He said he
has been self-hosting it over the past several months and called it "the next generation of Windows."

This Windows variant is expected to include the
"Sun Valley" user-interface refresh
, as well as some underlying improvements, such as better touch capabilities and a new app Store, based on various leaks.

Microsoft officials have not said what this new Windows will be branded, but some are expecting it to be called
"Windows 11."
 Others think it could just be called "Windows" with no qualifiers.

I'm expecting that this "new" Windows will not be the Windows 10 21H2 update. I think it will be more targeted at consumers and not be classified as a
normal feature update. I believe Microsoft will continue to release regular Windows 10 feature updates alongside this other Windows variant for some months/years
in the future, though no one from Microsoft has yet said this publicly.

Microsoft officials have been signaling that they want to give Windows a bigger play in 2021. By introducing a "new" Windows variant, they also will try
to help their OEM partners in their quest to get users to buy brand new PCs.

Kinda, sorta, but not exactly.  Since 21H2 is nowhere near to "finished" what you have isn't close to the final version that will ship as 21H2, but it's the currently available preview for insiders.

See:  https://wccftech.com/new-build-alert-for-windows-10-21h2-insiders-in-the-dev-channel/ 

I don't do the Insider thing anymore, so I don't generally keep up with the Dev builds/Insider builds at all.  But even the article that's spawned a thousand hand-wrings made direct reference to this:  https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-sun-valley-ui-october-2021-update 

Sun Valley has been known to be what will become 21H2 for quite a while now.
