Microsoft Launches New Windows 11 operating system


Microsoft has launched the new Windows 11 operating system after 6 years, its ‘Next Generation’ operating system, at a virtual event. 

Microsoft Windows 11 next-generation operating system feature, lets the users run Android apps on Windows desktop. 

Along with the Android apps feature it also has small, faster security updates, promising that they would happen in the background said the product manager Panos Panay. 

The users having a Windows 11 operating system can also configure multiple desktops for work, home, and gaming, like on a Mac. 

Currently, there are about 1.3 billion devices running Windows 10 says Microsoft. 

App developers can enjoy the early preview version of the new system which will be released next.

Existing Windows 10 users can easily move to Windows 11 with the availability of free updates although devices will not have the right specification. These may require a minimum of 64 gigabytes of storage and 4 gigabytes of RAM. 

One make-up change is putting the start button at the bottom center of the screen rather than placing it at the left bottom corner. 

Besides, Microsoft Windows 11 features include tighter integration with Microsoft communication platform teams. Xbox Games Pass which has a subscription service model offers hundreds of pre-installed games to Windows 11 users. 

The tech giant promised to share more profits from its app store with creators and developers – as Apple which is the rival of Microsoft continues to face challenges over its business model. 

When Microsoft launched Windows 10 in 2015, it said that it would be the final version of the operating system. It has since announced the retirement of Windows 10 in 2025. 

Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella saw the launch of Windows 11 as “a major milestone in the history of Windows”, but analyst Geoff Blaber from CCS Insight said he did not consider it to be “a revolutionary step”.

“Windows 11 is an iterative release that pinpoints where Windows needs greater ambition, rather than introducing the sweeping changes seen with its predecessor,” he said.

“The end game for Microsoft is ensuring that the step up from Windows 10 to Windows 11 provides significant enough improvements to offset any complaints.”

The principal analyst Forrester JP Gownder observe the new operating system, saying it was based on the code of Windows 10 to prevent the glitches in up-gradation such as those seen in the past with Windows Vista. 

“These user-friendly nods to the past are a double-edged sword, though,” he added.

“They’re great for continuity of experience, but they make you wonder what the 11 really stands for. Is this really more of an admittedly feature-rich Windows 10 update than a full-version release?”
