Windows 11 officially presented by Microsoft


After six years, Microsoft has presented a new generation of its Windows PC operating system. One of the innovations at Windows 11 is that Microsoft’s Teams software for video conferencing and collaboration is directly integrated in the office.

The in-house games subscription, Games Pass, is also installed via a new Xbox app. During the pandemic, the use of video conferencing and computer games has risen sharply.

In addition to Windows programs, the computers will also be able to use apps for the Google Android operating system, as the company announced on Thursday. They come to the platform via Amazon’s Android store and are made to work with the help of technology from the chip company Intel. Windows 11 also redesigned various control elements – including the start button and the associated menus, which can now be found in the middle of the taskbar instead of on the edge.


The vast majority of laptops and desktop computers in the world run on Windows, even though Apple’s Mac computers were the last. Windows 10, which was introduced in mid-2015, has largely replaced older versions and, according to market researchers, runs on around 80 percent of Windows computers.

Forrester Research industry analyst JP Gownder pointed out that the new Windows is coming in an era of hybrid office and home office work. The new operation gives the software a chance to stand out. At the same time, he welcomed the fact that the basic software code still comes from Windows 10 – this reduces the risk that previous programs and device drivers no longer work as they did with Windows Vista.

Unlike Apple, Microsoft is sticking to the fact that Windows devices can be operated with both keyboard and touchscreens. The iPhone group, on the other hand, consistently refrains from allowing control via screen with its Mac computers.

App developers can integrate their own payment methods on the Windows platform, and Microsoft will not levy a fee for this, the group emphasized. A specific release date for Windows 11 was not mentioned – it is expected in the fall, together with new devices from PC manufacturers on which the operating system is already preinstalled.
