Windows 11 Coming Up
When Windows 10 came out, we were told, “This is the end of Windows.” Never say never! There is going to be a Windows 11, which was recently announced by Microsoft.
What does that mean for you, as a user?
It will be available around the end of 2021 or 2022, and users who have Windows 10 already installed on their platforms, it will be an upgrade that they can acquire free of cost.
Users who are still using Windows 7 won’t be able to upgrade straight to Windows 11. First, you’ll need to install Windows 10. If you’re still running Windows 7, however, chances are, you have an older machine that may not have the hardware needed to run Windows 10 or 11 successfully. Microsoft will allow you to visit the website to check on the system requirements and determine whether it is compatible with your current machine. If you don’t have the resources necessary to run Windows 10, you won’t have the resources needed for Windows 11–and that could leave you with a clunker that won’t function the way you hoped.
2. It’s slick, attractive, and easy to use.
Windows 11 is designed with a unique new interface, including transparent windows that make it easy to operate and a great visual experience for users. Microsoft has started to notice the blur between work and home life: that is, they expect to have a nice, pretty computer at home as well as at the office–and vice versa. While Microsoft is not out to copy Apple and iOS directly, the company has been taking a look at the things that users tend to appreciate most about their Apple machines and incorporate that into their latest Windows changes.
3. It’s designed for gamers.
It offers a number of features and functionality that are designed to fit well with those gaming machines: the ones that have great RAM and fantastic graphics cards. Many gamers will find that they get a faster, cleaner, and overall better experience when they make the upgrade to Windows 11.
4. It’s ideal for businesspeople.
The upgrades contained within Windows 11 were designed with businesspeople in mind–and there are two very important ways in which a Windows 11 upgrade will benefit businesspeople in general. First, security. Many people have been worried, now more than ever, about the potential security hazards they may face, both on their private machines and on their business machines. Windows 11 is designed to be a better, more secure system, with a range of security features built in from the ground up.
In addition to extra security, Windows 11 is also making it easier to use Microsoft Teams–the platform that’s most commonly used by many businesses for communication. Instead of needing to open a separate platform or program, users can send messages, interact with team members, and simply make use of the system directly from the dashboard, all of which can help enhance communication and ultimately offer an almost social media-like experience.
Windows 11 is designed to offer a more streamlined, visually-appealing system that is ideal for all users. It’s an easy upgrade. Many of the apps and processes that people use every day are already built into the upgrade, which means that they will update automatically as you make the switch to Windows 11–and the new experience is designed to be ideal.
