Also Deskmodder has no internal sources, they took it from Windows United who updated their article afterwards and also once again from MDL.

There has been rumors about 12 already last year and in the year 2020.

Update 20.02.2022

SwiftonSecurity said it was a joke.

Update 21.02.2022

  • I contacted MS to get an official statement.
  • Someone send me a link, debunking the story.

FYI: the inside source at Microsoft who claims to have „inside information on Windows 12“ doesn’t exist. you’re missing the point of a joke made by a security analyst who is also well known for their shitposts
