Now now kids.



The schedule that has been previously stated is twice yearly major 
updates to Windows 10 and that Windows 10 will be the last version of 

But what will happen after 14 October 2025? Microsoft said that 'Windows 
10 is the last version of Windows'.


By 14 October 2025 Windows will just be a desktop like KDE, Gnome, etc. 
and it will be running on top of Ubuntu. They've already started that 
work bringing Ubuntu into Windows 10.

This assumes Canonical doesn't get too greedy and Microsoft doesn't get 
a fart cross ways.

Microsoft surrendered the browser market, switching to Google Chrome 
libraries like Opera and others.

They've been surrendering desktop applications for a while, trying to 
push everyone to Office365 and "leasing." This has lead to a boom in 
LibreOffice and OnlyOffice use. WordPerfect, believe it or not, is 
rumored to be gaining users as well. WordPerfect, however, ditched their 
Linux version long ago so will probably be well and truly screwed in 2025.
