Microsoft may strip down Windows 12 to enable frequent updates
From Microsoft to Chrome OS, it seems that every big tech company is trying to get in on the action on AI-powered operating systems. Microsoft may be the latest to join the race, with rumours swirling that the company is working on an AI-powered Windows to rival Chrome OS.
The rumour comes from a reliable source, Windows Central, who say that Microsoft is planning major platform upgrades for “Windows 12” that will modernize the OS with AI, faster updates, and better security. This follows reports that the company is focusing on security and AI in the next version of Windows.
If these rumours are true, it would be a departure from Microsoft’s usual tactic of slowly adding AI features to its existing products. It would also put them in direct competition with Google, who are currently leading the pack in AI-powered operating systems with Chrome OS.
Whether Microsoft is able to muscle in on Google’s territory remains to be seen, but it’s clear that the company is turning its attention to AI. With the company’s history of dominance in the operating system market, it would be foolish to count them out just yet.
