No matter where you go, there you are
So...what does that mean? Confirmation of Windows 11? If not, how does a current OS expire?

I may have to eat some crow. I do not believe that Win11 is coming - but this means *something* is coming....which means they do foresee an end to Win10.

The X is (soon to be) dead. All hail the X!
