Microsoft will create the next version of the Windows OS under the internal codename of CorePC

According to a report from Windows Central, Microsoft is set to develop the next iteration of the Windows operating system, internally codenamed “CorePC,” which will unsurprisingly incorporate more artificial intelligence and bolster security measures.

The report suggests that Microsoft’s “CorePC” project will employ a modular design to reduce the complexity of external features. This approach will enable Microsoft to upgrade the operating system’s core, thereby simplifying future upgrades and expediting user downloads of updates.

Similar to the current design of iOS and Android operating systems, which separate the core, operation layer, and data layer, this design will streamline future operating system updates and system security updates. As a result, users will not have to redownload all update content each time, and Microsoft can protect the core components, increasing the difficulty of external intrusion.

On the other hand, Microsoft evidently plans to optimize the operating system for ARM architecture, akin to Apple’s optimization for its ARM-based Apple Silicon processors. This could further enhance compatibility with ARM-based processor designs, improving overall operational efficiency while maintaining smooth performance on Intel and AMD x86 architecture processors.

Unsurprisingly, Microsoft will integrate a plethora of artificial intelligence features into the next Windows operating system. However, specific details are presently unclear. Security will also be a focal point in the design of the upcoming Windows operating system.

Microsoft seemingly plans to launch the next Windows operating system in 2024, though it remains uncertain whether it will be named Windows 12.
