When Microsoft launched Windows 10 in 2015, the company said that Windows 10 will be the final release of the iconic operating system which are installed on about 90% of the world’s computers. However, with Microsoft’s upcoming event on the 24th of June 2021, it is expected to launch a new operating system.

Although it is not clear what the new operating system is going to be called, the rumors are that it might be called Windows 11.

Microsoft also released an 11 minute video on YouTube in anticipation of the event on the 24th. The video features the Windows 95, XP, and 7 startup sounds slowed down to a meditative 4,000% reduced speed. If the fact that the video is 11 minutes long might be a suggestion of anything, then it is that the next Windows might be called “Windows 11”. On a side note, the comments on the video is pretty humorous. Check out the video below and see how long you can last listening to it. Let us know in the comments.

If you want to have a more original trip down memory lane, listen to the Windows 95, XP, and 7 startup sounds in their original version.

You can also set a calendar reminder for the event on 24 June 2021 at 11:00 Eastern Standard Time (17:00 South African time) here.

It is also expected that the upgrade to the next version of Windows will be free, similar to Windows 10. In addition, all new desktop and laptop computers will get shipped with the new operating system.

If Microsoft indeed announce a new version of Windows, it would not be released straight away, and consumers might have to wait until September to get their hands on a public release.

It is not clear what the features of the new version will have in store, and we might have to wait for the Microsoft event to learn more.
