People are always looking for the latest and greatest releases from them. So in this article, we will be covering all the aspects of it.
On 29th July 2015, Microsoft launched Windows 10 and noted that this is the last operating system release. From Windows 10 they will update it with all new features and uplift its design aesthetics, but there will be no full Windows release anytime soon. After 5 years, now there is news that we might get Windows 12 in near future.
This story was first seen in Reddit and then exploded in the tech-community. The post also came with some possible features for Windows 12, as mentioned below.
- Windows 12 will come with its own hardware requirements and is mainly focused on virtual reality.
- The user interface of the operating system will be completely different but much easier to navigate around.
- As Windows had a transition of the Start menu from Windows 7 to 8, this time there will be two options to choose – Start menu and home page.
- The OS will come with a default screen recording software with many extra features that you can get with any third-party options.

Windows 12 – The Truth
Microsoft representative, Jerry Nixon stated, “Right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10.” So as you can see, an official release of Windows 12 is not happening any time soon. But the thing is there is a new operating system on the horizon from some dedicated developers which is based on Linux. The new OS is called Windows 12 Lite. But for the name, people confused it with an official Windows release.
Windows 12 Lite
Windows 12 Lite is 64-bit Ubuntu operating system, based on, Linux as mentioned earlier. The developers promised that this OS is 3X faster than current Windows 10, and comes with less boot time. You will also be able to able yo update the operating system on your terms, means it will not force you to update the system as Windows 10 does. But on the other hand, it is a Linux thing more than the Windows 12 Lite thing.
Windows 12 Lite – Release Date
Windows 12 Lite is already released at 11th February 2020 but is not available for online download. As per their official website, Windows 12 Lite is available in DVDs from WebHouses website and you can buy it for £15. On the website, the developers mentioned: “This is a far superior operating system and it we see it as the best operating system available today”.
But if you ask for a recommendation, I would rather request you stay away from it. The main reason is, this is not an official Windows OS. So the chance of getting any after-sales assistance is nearly zero. Also, the OS is built on Ubuntu, so if you are not families with Linux, you will not able to get the full performance of the Windows 12 Lite operating system. On the other hand, if you are already familiar with Linux, you can make it look like Windows any day, no need to spend £15.
So these are all the latest updates about the Windows 12 release date, rather Windows 12 Lite updates. Hopefully, the article helped you to clear out any confusion about it. If we get any further story, we will be updating the article.
