Microsoft is likely to continue with Windows 10 as its flagship PC operating system. But earlier this week, one of Microsoft’s certified retailer shared details about imminent launch of Windows 11. That’s right, the retailer hosted a Windows 11 pre-order on their website. The page was spotted by Mark Wyciślik-Wilson of betanews, who was alerted to the update and curious to know more.

Mark was sure that Microsoft wan’t going to launch version 11 anytime soon. But to crosscheck his claims, Mark reached out to the retailer through their live chat option, where he connected with Emir. Much to Mark’s surprise, Emir confidently claimed Windows 11 will be posted on Microsoft’s website on 1 July, and release date of 29 July. After hearing this Mark repeatedly pointed out to Emir that Microsoft has no plans to release 11. But Emir said he was 100 percent sure it will be announced, confirmed to him by Microsoft itself.

Few hours after the chat, Mark got a mail from the retailer apologising for posting wrong information about the Microsoft product. They even handed out thank you gift card to Mark but he refused to share his address with them. The chances of Windows 11 launching anytime soon are close to zero. The company has regularly pointed out that it will offer latest feature updates on Windows 10 without having to change the version. This has become possible by designing the software into tiles which can be updated to keep them secure.
