Is Windows 11 coming? Microsoft gives us a hint

What’s in a name? Windows 11 is coming. You can just tell. All the evidence points to a name change for the operating system. Big changes, revamped UI, new store, and now this Windows event logo with the big number 11 that you can’t unsee. Oh, and the event is taking place at 11am ET.

At Microsoft’s Build 2021 conference last month, CEO Satya Nadella revealed that they would not cover Windows updates during the event. He noted that big changes were coming for the “next generation of Windows,” and promised more information was on the way.

The reveal used the logo above, but we managed to miss that the shadow cast by the crossbar on the windows logo omitted the horizontal bar. It’s a significant omission since the light shining through casts an image that looks like an 11.

From Nadella’s comments and from what we have seen of the Sun Valley update, we know significant changes are coming to the ubiquitous operating system.

Microsoft has not indicated it’s moving from the Windows 10 moniker and years prior they said Windows 10 would be “the last version of Windows,” but that was a very different Microsoft under a Nadella leadership that was less than a year old. The evidence seems to suggest that it may be planning to introduce Windows 11.
