Nickel is the 22H2 development semester of Windows as a service, the commercial release of which is Windows 11 2022 Update. Work on Nickel began in March 2021. It was followed by Copper in the first half of 2022.

Early builds of Nickel still use the older Windows 10 branding and user interface as they predate the public unveil of Windows 11.
