Windows 10 is rumored to be getting a major redesign. Don’t screw this up, Microsoft! – CNN

Windows 10 could use a refresh. Aside from twice-annual tweaks, Windows 10 been mostly unchanged since its release in 2015. Six years is long in the tooth for any PC operating system, and a revolution is coming to personal computers that threatens Windows’ standing as the dominant productivity operating system.
Still, Microsoft (MSFT) doesn’t exactly have the best reputation for fixing operating systems that ain’t broke. So a lot is riding on Microsoft’s ability to turn the next iteration of Windows 10 into something hundreds of millions of computer owners will want to keep using.

What’s in the refresh?

Microsoft updates Windows twice a year, usually adding a few welcome new features (a new screenshot tool, a cleaner Start Menu, etc.). This year’s spring update will be another one of those minor updates that adds polish and squashes bugs.
But in the fall, Microsoft is expected to unleash a full-scale Windows 10 redesign. We know this for a few reasons.
Microsoft recently posted a job listing on its website that said the company is working on a “sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows experiences to signal to our customers that Windows is BACK and ensure that Windows is considered the best user OS experience for customers,” according to Windows Latest. The listing remains but the language has since been dialed back quite a bit.
