Hello Everyone I am going to build a new Desktop for myself with Windows 10. I googled windows 10 end of life and as far as I can make out Windows 10 end support in 2023 So what I would like to know is please what is going to replace windows 10 ?

You're not quite right but, not really wrong either. Microsoft will support Windows 10 Version 1903 until 2023. However there will be a new version of Windows 10, coming along shortly.

Initially, they said that they would produce 2 new Versions of Windows 10, each year. I gather that the plan has changed slightly, and it will be 1 version each year.

According to Microsoft, Windows 10 is the ultimate version and will be revamped on an annual basis.

Most of us are somewhat sceptical about that but, you should be safe for the next 3, or so, years

Thank You wee eddie ! I am concerned that if I build my new 10 Desktop, I don't want to fall into the trap that if a new windows 10 would make my hardware incompatible and I may have to fork out £100's to comply with the newer release of windows 10 I take it other computer uses will be in the same boat? Thanks

The current version of Windows 10 is compatible with almost everything made in the last 10 years. That is unlikely to change.

Unless you plan on using Legacy Components, you should be OK long before the expected Lifecycle of anything you build using todays components in over

Surely WMe (Millenium edition) was the worst, I don't think I managed to ever getting running for more than 10 minutes before it Blue Screened!

"a system called longhorn was reported to be in development and it was so overdue they changed the name to vista"

Every version of Windows had a codename during development, just like XP was called Whistler, Vista was Longhorn.

Mr Macgoo: Those'll be OS's with a GUI.

Sorry, I arrived in the era of an MS DOS based OS. I think 2.2 but it may have been 2.1. I wasn't really that worried at the time ~ Too many other things to master like, every Stock Item had a Code Number. Thank God, what was known as Alpha Search arrived, a couple of years later, in the Catering Management Software I was using, and we could refer to an item by it's name.

There will be, just like there will be a new version after iPhone 11.

"i thought longhorn was changed to vista because it was years overdue and they were hoping people would forget or never heard the longhorn tag"

flat earther has explained what Longhorn was - there was nothing sinister about it.
