Windows Vista and Windows 8, Windows 10 has been a runaway success. It has come along, it has improved a lot and gets better and better with each generation that goes by. But it doesn’t mean that it is an operating system that is without any flaws. Microsoft has been working on its upcoming software for four years and they gave us a peek at Windows 11 in a new blog post. In that, they offered a rundown of the latest Windows PCs from a variety of manufacturers.
Windows 11 Features
Vice President of Microsoft Corporate, Nick Parker talked about the modern operating system that will power all the machines. But he didn’t mention Windows by name, he certainly seems to be hinting at something big. He said that the modern OD will be enablers which will deliver the foundational experiences customers expect from their devices and delighters that deliver innovative human-centric experiences. The enablers consist of a lot of updates that will have in the background with any interruptions, comprehensive protection from malicious attacks, the ability to be connected to Wi-Fi and 5G at all times, and sustained performance.
On the other hand, Delighters will increase the experience of actually using an OS. It will also have Cloud connectivity, intelligent AI, multi-sense interaction, and something Parker calls “form factor agility,” which is quite a buzz-phrase. In an interview, Parker said: “These enablers and delighters underpin our vision for a Modern OS, they will provide the foundational elements for an evolution of the PC ecosystem and enable partners to deliver the more human-centric experiences of tomorrow. Microsoft is investing to enable these modern OS experiences, and to deliver new ones that take advantage of silicon advancements, powerful PCs, the cloud and power of AI.”
This is pretty much an indefinite list of features that might not even be in the upcoming Windows 11 or Windows Lite. It might have been the next step towards the evolution of Windows 10. But there is a chance that Microsoft might be working on Windows 11 because 4 years is the longest the company has gone without releasing a new OS since Windows XP. Moreover, I think Microsoft is teasing because they might be making some major announcements in the upcoming months.
