THE Microsoft faithful to its appointment officially announced the new generation of its operating system, which is going to replace the Windows 10 just before Christmas. After countless leaks and unofficial presentations by journalists who had the opportunity to test parts of the new OS, Microsoft officially announced the Windows 11, its new operating system, which comes with plenty of surprises.
In Windows 11 the first thing to look out for is the most simplified User Interface, as well as the new Windows Store, but also a series of critical interventions in its areas performance and his Multitasking. In fact, the biggest surprise of the new upgraded OS is that it will support Android apps for the first time. Immediately of course the eye of experienced Windows users will fall on new “position” of the Start Menu and upgraded Start button which are now located at centre (probably a legacy of Windows 10X, the canceled operating system that forms the core of the new Windows). In general, the UI bears a strong resemblance to Windows 10X, which is known to focus on dual-screen devices, with Microsoft essentially incorporating several of the core ideas of Windows 10X into its new operating system.
In addition, the “fresh” start menu leaves them behind Live Tiles which originally debuted in Windows 8 and is essentially a more “traditional” launcher in the Chrome OS or Android standard. And the “central” placement of the Start button strongly refers to MacOS and Chrome OS, while there are also the most rounded corners in the windows that have been known for years to be a feature of Apple operating systems. At the same time, as Microsoft officials characteristically stated, the new operating system will include dark and light modes, emphasizing even the smallest detail.
At the same time, in the context of the official announcement of Windows 11, we had the opportunity to get to know the Snap Layouts. It is essentially a possibility of optimizing the presentation of windows, where by clicking on maximize button the user will be able to better adjust the projected result. In addition, new Windows will be able to remember exactly where your apps are stored, with Snap Groups, which offers even more customization options. It is obvious that with this function, in fact, it will be possible to better support the multiple displays, with the user being able to open whenever he wants the application he is interested in correct monitor. Undoubtedly, this addition to the content display capabilities is very important, especially if you are working with a laptop connected to a monitor or if you like to use a desktop PC on many different monitors.
As you can imagine, his field performance Microsoft is particularly interested in this and Windows updates will now be 40% smaller in size, giving more flexibility. Running on background, Microsoft promises not to strain your system while you work. Also, since video conferencing apps are now part of our daily lives, Microsoft has decided to integrate Microsoft Teams in Windows 11. This practically means that Teams will be on the taskbar, enabling the new Windows user to make on-the-fly calls. It is worth noting that the “preference” shown by Microsoft on Teams seems to leave behind Skype, which was the application that was part of Windows 10.
Apart from the above, in Windows 11 there will be more focus on Widgets and in touch gestures, which is perfectly normal considering that the core of the new Windows is the most “portable” Windows 10X. The built-in widgets of the new OS will include the classic news feed, weather and maps. It is worth noting that Windows 11 will have a form of chameleon, as they can more easily transform from the desktop to the most portable environment (ideal feature for hybrid systems). The logic of the Microsoft team is to make the new operating system as much as possible more user friendly is done and indeed there will be many improvements in inking and voice typing, while in fact the new Windows will work much better with some stylus, even allowing for haptic feedback!
Of course, Microsoft could not “forget” that Xbox και PC gaming. That’s why in 11 a.m. we are going to see the possibility of Auto HDR (a feature of the Xbox Series X / S). With Auto HDR enabled, its functionality will be added HDR in a large number of titles that support the DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 and all that is required is a certified monitor with HDR (we look forward to seeing this in some future version of MS Flight Simulator). Also, speed in gaming is a factor that the computing giant gives special weight, so with DirectStorage technology, the latest NVMe drives will eliminate loading times in Windows 11 (with game developers being able to take advantage of this technology in favor of their securities). Of course, its further integration could not be absent from the menu Xbox Game Pass with Windows and the development of an upgrade is expected to help the most Xbox app, which will offer greater management capabilities to gamers, as well as the integration of xCloud, which will allow the streaming titles direct from Microsoft cloud.
Of course, one of the biggest surprises of the new Windows presentation could only be the support for Android apps through the Microsoft Store, which is going to be completely redesigned so that it can “accept” those applications that are not typically available in the Windows app store (we can think of some of them such as Adobe Creative Suite, TikTok, etc.) . Also, by making this opening to the admittedly huge community of Android applications, Microsoft is essentially offering new better conditions and developers, giving them more creative freedom and more control over the commercial part, as well as the ability to use their own payment methods.
Microsoft has not officially announced when exactly Windows 11 will be available, but has promised that users will be able to try out the new operating system just before Christmas. 2021, with the most likely launch date being sometime in October. And because definitely what will burns you more has to do with its free disposal, the news is definitely very pleasing as it is expected to be one free upgrade of Windows 10! So have a good trip and really, we do not hide that we are looking forward to it!
