On June 24th, Microsoft brought to us, on YouTube and other media outlets, news about the upcoming operating system, presenting new features. Most features are summed up in the video below.
The full video presentation can be found YouTube (click here – the video starts at 16:33). As the tech world knows, at the moment (June 24th), Windows 11 has not been officially released yet, not even as a Windows update. Windows 10 users were promised a free upgrade through Windows updates. If all goes well, we should gain access to the new OS soon, through the Windows updates system or by using the Microsoft site to download that tool that creates bootable USB memory sticks to perform a fresh install on a system. To be noted, there are some “minimum” hardware requirements for Windows 11: 1Ghz 64-bit dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, a 9-inch display (1366×768 resolution), UEFI, Secure Boot & a CPU that’s TPM 1.2 compatible, DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WDDM 2.x. These requirements will certainly make the cheaper computers obsolete. Android apps, we are told, will be usable on Windows 11 natively, unlike Windows 10 – where you have to use Android emulator software. We can only hope Windows 11 will change our computing experience.
