Microsoft is coming up with a new kind of operating system (OS) which will have many new features. However, we are not talking about Windows Lite here. Microsoft’s corporate vice president, Nick Parker revealed today at Computex 2019 about the new OS as the company’s vision for a modern operating system. Parker didn’t reveal anything about the awaited Windows Lite OS, but he did confirm the ways they were preparing for the new devices. The company also said that the modern OS updates are done invisibly.
The new OS from Microsoft is called the ‘modern OS’ and it will receive ‘enablers’ like seamless updates. According to Microsoft, the modern OS will receive updates which will happen in the background. The updates of modern OS’ will be “deterministic, reliable and instant with no interruptions.” This is a completely different path than the Windows 10 updates and it is more like Chrome OS.
According to Microsoft, the modern OS platform is secure by default, and it means that the state is separated from the OS and the compute is separated from the apps. In addition to this, the company wants the modern OS to work with 5G connectivity and will also work with inputs like pen, voice, touch and gaze.
Parker said, “These enablers and delighters underpin our vision for a Modern OS, they will provide the foundational elements for an evolution of the PC ecosystem and enable partners to deliver the more human-centric experiences of tomorrow.”
Furthermore, the company with the modern OS is focusing more towards the cloud-connected device experience which would use the compute power of the cloud to make the user experience better.
Windows hasn’t announced or launched its new Windows Lite OS yet, and with the announcement of the modern OS we can hope to see some of the functions and features of the modern OS in the Lite OS. The Windows Lite might come with similar update features, security improvements, 5G connectivity, cloud-powered applications and AI support.
Moreover, the rumoured Windows Lite is currently not in the picture as the company hasn’t revealed anything about it. Even the upcoming Windows 10 update – codenamed 19H2 – details are currently not available, but it is expected to be released sometimes in October. The company has also started testing a new version of the Windows 10 but it won’t be coming to the PCs until 2020. Even the details about the next Windows 10 update which is to come in October 2019 are currently not known.
