Windows 10 was released in 2015 and was long believed to be the last numerical change we would see on the platform, rather than opting for annual edition updates. However, rumors are circulating that Microsoft’s big Windows event on June 24 could see the launch of Windows 11.
The change in tactic is expected to be partly due to the hiatus they gave Windows 10X, a lighter platform being created for dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo. Much of the design work originally for 10X is expected to appear in the upcoming Windows 11.
If we are cynical, the move could also be seen as a way to generate more interest in the operating system. Windows updates were once big events, like the first iPhone announcements, but an annual update of Windows 10 editions hasn’t had the same glamor. Even if it was ultimately more useful to the user.
The June 24 event was planned to be the Sun Valley update for Windows 10, which, in itself, was to be a significant update to the appearance of the operating system. However, as the date approaches, rumors that this is something else have intensified. Many of them are thanks to the advances launched by nothing more and nothing less than Microsoft. The invitation to the event itself sparked buzz thanks to an 11-shaped reflection in the Windows logo.
WILL THERE BE A WINDOWS 11?
Despite all the rumors, there has been no official confirmation that we will see a Windows 11. Even if Microsoft has chosen to move from Windows 10, that does not guarantee that the next version will automatically be Windows 11. It could easily be a Windows 20 , or Windows 22, if they were following the system based on the previous year.
You could even remove the numbering entirely, as Apple has done with the mac OS and just call it Windows Sun Valley, or go a similar naming route after the highlights of Washington state. What would a Windows Tacoma look like?
WINDOWS 11: RELEASE DATE
Microsoft will host a major Windows event on Thursday, June 24, with an invitation to “see what’s next for Windows.” We expect this to be the launch event for Windows 11. The event will be available as a live stream from (conveniently) 11 AM ET.
If it is a new version, it is unlikely that it will be available immediately. Based on the timelines above, it could be at least September before a public version comes out.
WINDOWS 11: PRICE
As with previous updates – in recent times at least – we hope there will be no charge for users upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Also, any new desktop or laptop is likely to come with it. embedded software. The only charge will be for those who build their own machines and are likely to follow Windows 10, with the Home edition starting at USD $ 139 ($ 2,769 MXN, approx.) And Pro starting at $ 199 (that is, about $ 3,964 MXN).
WINDOWS 11: FEATURES
Rumor has it, the new Windows 11 will borrow the design – in large part – from the now-archived Windows 10X. This platform had a more modern centralized design with many new icons, a new start menu, and a new central taskbar.
Windows 10X was designed to accommodate foldable and multi-screen devices, so we can expect this technology to make its way to Windows 11 as well.
WINDOWS 11: NEW INFORMATION
With just two weeks until the Windows event, Microsoft has released a slow-motion video of its startup sounds. The 11-minute video (another coincidence?), Described as a relaxation track, combines the startup sounds of Windows 95, XP, and Windows 7 slowed by 4,000%. Although we’re not sure it will have the desired effect, let’s see if you can hold out for more than a minute.
These sounds come from major releases and have become ingrained in most of our memories. Especially the legendary Windows 95 startup that was created by none other than Brian Eno. Does this mean that we will hear a new startup sound in Windows 11?
