    10 years, which seems about right, but wasn't Windows 10 their last?

    I guess it depends on how you look at it. I seem to remember that when Win10 was announced/released, MS said it intends to keep it running for a good long while but release multiple major updates for it. Those updates have certainly happened and 10 years is not a short time for a Windows to be the active OS, not just a legacy one still being supported. XP was the previous longest serving one with 6 years under its belt.

    Considering the 4-core mainstream maximum period ended after the Win10 release, and things have been changing quite rapidly in general, I suppose MS feels like it needs to rebuild the OS once again. Apparently Win10 still needs to cope with the BIG-little thing, though.

    You cannot upgrade the same OS for ever. A total code cleaning is needed.

    Oh yeah, W10 was released already back in 2015... where did the time go?

    No seriously, I want it back or a reasonable explanation for where it went! :p

    I'd assume the next iteration of Windows will be open source. There I said it.

    Bill Gates is always saying how he likes Google, so that's a hint right there.

    Then you should not. Performance is always achieved through beautiful programming, not monstrous one.

    Especially since they have issues with high core count CPU's.

    Then you have nothing to worry about, they completely ditched the Mobile platform years ago.
