The other day, Microsoft teased that they would be showing off their next version of Windows on the 24th of June. Given that Windows 10 is expected to come to an end in 2025, many speculate that this could mean that Microsoft will be showing off their next-gen Windows update, which many think could be Windows 11.
We are waiting for the announcement, but in the meantime, screenshots of the alleged upcoming update have since been posted on Baidu, giving us a glimpse as to what we can expect. Visually it still looks very much like Windows, except with more rounded corners. It also has an option where users can center the icons on their taskbar and Start Menu, which kind of throws us off a bit but you can always move it back

It also seems that widgets could be making a comeback if you are missing out on that feature. The screenshots don’t show us that much but as The Verge points out, this is apparently an early build of Windows 11 so maybe not everything Microsoft wants to include has been included yet.
Some have pointed out the similarities to this and Windows 10X, which is fair. This is because Microsoft had previously confirmed that they have stopped development on Windows 10X, but they are trying to salvage it by taking some features of Windows 10X and applying it to future versions of Windows, and it looks like they might have done it here.
