The alien computer system that Microsoft has been developing to replace its older Windows XP operating system could be on its way, but it might not be for some time, according to the company’s chief technology officer.
The chief technology office, headed by chief operating officer Scott Guthrie, says the new operating system, dubbed “Star Trek” is “still in the design and development phase,” but it’s still in its early days.
Microsoft is developing a new version of Windows 10 that includes a “Star Fleet” section called “Star Wars.”
The new version would replace the old version, which was Microsoft’s version of the operating system for the Xbox and Xbox 360, but that version was no longer supported by Microsoft.
The new version will likely be called “Windows 10 Enterprise,” according to a Microsoft spokesperson, but the company has yet to announce when that will happen.
The company has said it plans to make changes to the operating systems to address compatibility issues and other problems, but this has not been confirmed by Microsoft, which is focused on a more complete Windows 10 release later this year.
The new operating systems will likely include features like cloud storage and more native applications.
Guthrie says Microsoft will continue to iterate on its technology to improve it and deliver better experience for users.
