Microsoft has announced that from now on it will distribute major updates for Windows 10 in March and September every year as part of its "predictable twice-per-year" upgrade program, with each future release being serviced and supported for at least 18 months.

Back in 2015, Microsoft employee Jerry Nixon revealed that Windows 10 will be the "last version" of Windows. While Nixon's claim has never been confirmed by the firm, its latest commitment implies that it isn't planning to launch another version of the operating system anytime soon.

So what does the future hold forWindows 10?

Well, Microsoft has still yet to disclose exactly what the next major build of Windows 10 will bring to the table, but it's said to include power throttling of background applications, the return of people integration in the taskbar and possibly even some design changes.
