Microsoft will focus on security and AI in the next version of Windows supposedly
According to Windows Central, Microsoft is working on a new “modern” version of Windows that will have faster updates and better security. Windows would be able to scale better for different devices thanks to the CorePC initiative, which would continue to support legacy applications.
CorePC would attempt to accomplish a number of the same objectives as Microsoft’s Windows Core OS, which it marketed as a modular modernization of its operating system and which also saw the cancellation of Windows 10X. Similar to iOS and Android, CorePC would divide Windows into multiple partitions using “state separation.” While also speeding up updates, this could make it harder for malware to infect the system.
“The current version of Windows is not a state-separated platform, meaning the entire system is installed into a single writable partition,” explains Windows Central. “System files, user data, and program files are all stored in the same place. CorePC splits up the OS into multiple partitions, which is key to enabling faster OS updates. State separation also enables faster and more reliable system reset functionality, which is important for Chromebook compete devices in the education sector.”
Microsoft would be able to offer different versions of Windows for different hardware thanks to CorePC, each with its own set of apps and features. For example, a variant with an educational focus might have a smaller footprint than ChromeOS and only run the Edge browser, web apps, Office, and emulated Android apps. On the other hand, CorePC could likewise offer undeniable adaptations of Windows that help every one of the ongoing elements and abilities of the advanced Windows 11 work area. ( The OS would be able to support older Windows applications thanks to a “Neon” compatibility layer.)
It is also said that the company is developing a CorePC version to compete with Apple Silicon, which the iPhone manufacturer began shipping with new Macs more than two years ago. When coupled with specific hardware, such as, theoretically, Surface devices running a particular class of chips, Microsoft’s “silicon-optimized” variant would enhance the operating system’s capabilities and performance.
Finally, Microsoft is incorporating AI into the new endeavor, which is not surprising. It intends to analyze on-screen content with artificial intelligence and provide appropriate contextual cues. It suggests that the AI capabilities in upcoming Office versions will be expanded across the entire system.
When you can get your hands on it, Microsoft is reportedly planning to use CorePC in the 2024 release of the next major version of Windows, likely called “Windows 12.” However, the alleged plans of the company may alter between now and then.
