Windows 10 is " The last version of Windows , " says Microsoft...!!

Windows has been the most popular and most used Computer Operating System since 1990's .Microsoft already  has created a great buzz about Windows 10 , latest version of Windows to be released this summer. Now Microsoft announces that Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows .
Microsoft 's developer Jerry Nixon at the ignite Tech Conference said , " Right now we are releasing Windows 10 , and Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows , we are all still working on Windows 10 ,".
It seems Microsoft would be following Apple's approach  , instead of releasing entirely new and different versions of its desktop OS  every few years It would be standardizing Windows 10 and deliver regular improvements to Windows through software updates.

"Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner , with continuous values for our consumers and business customers ,"explained Microsoft in its full statement to Verge. " We aren't speaking to the future branding at this time , but customers can be confident Windows 10 will remain up-to date and power a variety of devices from PC;s to phones to Surface Hubs to HoloLens  and X-Box. We look forward to long future of Windows innovations.

Extract the marketing speak and what the future appears to is "Windows "- no version , just "Windows".
This will be a single , homogeneous entity powering all hardware Microsoft has and delivering and on going stream of updates. These updates may technically carry code numbers or names , but they won't be heavily flagged and most users will simply see themselves as running "Windows"- a platform which is always the latest software Microsoft has to offer . This means no more XP  , 7, 8 ,8.1 or 10 and maybe the software which runs IOS and Android Apps.
We could just wait and see what Microsoft really does after Windows 10 but it seems they would be following Apple's approach.
