Microsoft unveiled the new edition of its Windows software.
The most recent version of Microsoft’s flagship operating system, Windows 11, announced today, will succeed the current Windows 10, introduced by the company in 2015.
Windows 11 is expected to be available later this year on new computers and other devices. It will then be a free update for PCs with Windows 10, which is the most widely used PC operating system in the world, with over 1.3 billion users. Windows accounts for over 10% of microsoft’s revenue which on the market right now earns 0.61%.
When it launched the previous version six years ago, Microsoft hoped that the new operating system would be the company’s trump card to solidify the loyalty of users who were increasingly using tablets, smartphones and other devices.
The Redmond operating system update focuses on simplifying the user interface, includes a new Start menu and taskbar, and integrates Teams, the chat and collaboration app that exploded during smart working, a move that some experts interpret as a future abandonment of Skype.
“Windows has always been synonymous with simplicity for content creators,” said CEO and president of the company Satya Nadella, who just the other day joined the super-exclusive club of companies worth $ 2 trillion. Windows 11 will be available on new PCs and, through a free update, on eligible Windows 10 PCs later this year.
Windows chief Panos Panay said that in the development of the project “the team was obsessed with every detail”. Windows 11 includes some aesthetic innovations such as light and dark mode, also borrowed from smartphones.
In addition, Microsoft, mindful of some criticisms leveled at previous programs, such as Windows 8, has also thought about improving performance: operating system updates are 40% smaller and more efficient as they now take place in the background.
Finally, there is a bit of work for artificial intelligence, present in an icon, a widget, which takes up news and personalized alerts, including those for weather and traffic. As anticipated by the rumors, the app store changes, redesigned and capable of supporting a series of third-party applications. Among the first, TikTok and Instagram.
An important step that goes in the direction of monetization for developers, with Microsoft that will not increase the percentage for downloads and will allow software houses to use their own payment systems.
