Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 21390.1000 for the Dev channel. There is another cumulative update with no features or fixes, designed to test the service cord.
What’s more interesting is that the blog post said that updates like this are all we’ll get in the next few weeks, as opposed to getting some new complete builds. It makes sense too. On June 24, Microsoft will announce Windows 11.
Although there will be a new version of Windows, it will not change in the same way as new versions have done in the past. For all intents and purposes, this may have been Windows 10 version 21H2. But since it’s such a big change, Microsoft wanted to give it some fanfare and call it something else.

With that in mind, it makes perfect sense that there will be no new construction between now and then. For months, we’ve seen these previews come with one or two minor new features, or some new icons here or there; Meanwhile, Microsoft monitors know that there is more to the story.
And Microsoft is going to tell that story on June 24 at 11:00 Eastern Time. After that, those who want to get hold of Windows 11 should be able to. Microsoft should also answer some questions that day, such as whether it continues to expand Windows 10, or if Windows 11 is the only way forward, the plan to not compete with itself continues.
