Microsoft is preparing to release a major update to its Windows Server platform for the next two years, but it won’t be available until at least 2018, Microsoft officials said Monday.
The update, codenamed WSF2020, will bring the operating system’s features and performance up to the level of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019.
Microsoft will release the Windows Server 2016 Enterprise Edition to the public in 2019.
Microsoft officials say that will be its last major release.
The first release of WSF 2020 is scheduled for late 2019.
The new version of Windows Server will be available for public consumption sometime in 2020.
Microsoft officials said in an interview that WSF 2019 will be the next major release of the operating systems and will have more significant changes than the previous versions.
Microsoft plans to bring Windows Server 2021 to market as soon as possible.
Windows Server 2020 will be released in October.
Microsoft said that Windows Server and the Windows Platform will be on track to release in 2019, but the platform will not be on time.
Microsoft is planning to offer more preview versions of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
Microsoft also announced that the Windows Foundation will provide a “platform for innovation and creativity.”
The Foundation will be used by Microsoft to provide technical support for the Windows 8 operating system and the various Windows Server updates, Microsoft said.
Microsoft has been working on Windows Server for nearly two years.
Microsoft first unveiled the Windows platform in January 2015.
Microsoft plans to continue to add new operating systems, features and updates for Windows Server.
