  • Yes, the next version of Windows will be Win10 version 2004

    You couldn’t make this stuff up.

    The beta test version of Win10, known as 20H1, will ultimately emerge as Win10 version 2004, build 19033. It’s apparently all queued up and ready to go – although MS insists you won’t be able to get it until May (thus the “2004” moniker).

    The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build.This doesn’t mean we’re done…

    Eagle-eyed Windows Insiders will notice that that as of this build, 20H1 officially shows it is version 2004. We have chosen to use 2004 as the version to eliminate confusion with any past product names (such as Windows Server 2003).

    I wonder what they could do to make it more confusing…..
