Why are there so many versions of Windows?

    Would there be more Windows after 10? I'm confuse why there are so many versions of it...

    So...Windows is an Operating System for, you guessed it, Windows PCs! Unlike Apple Mac computers, you see. Those use Mac OS (OS = Operating System).

    There are many versions of Windows because it has grown over time, it can do more and more each time a version comes out. From Windows' original version all the way through Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and now 10. (don't worry about 8.1)

    With this last version (perhaps) it will just be built on, no telling if there will be a Windows 11 or beyond, it could be 10 is here to stay and will just get improved on and perhaps named differently but will still be 10. Me thinks anyway.

    I think we would call this the IBM PC standard, as opposed to Macs and other desktop standards.

    You can approach the question (WHY) in a different way. By, understanding Moore's law. As productivity improves so hardware and the need for software.
