Windows-11-Concept

It’s been almost a year after the release of Windows 10 and updates and people seem not to be very happy with this version. Windows 11 is the new buzz in the online market that just refuses to settle down. This is something that is elevating the level of curiosity among the tech freaks as well as non-tech people. 

But it is not as easy as it sounds because there are many ambiguous thoughts in the digital market about if the tech giant Microsoft will release anything of such sort or not! Oh don’t get paranoid, there surely is something that can make you happy. 

The piece of write-up below explicitly describes everything that you need to know about Windows 11 and associated rumors. So, if you want to know every tiny detail, just stay glued to this informative piece.

 

Why The Hype?

Well, this particular version is highly anticipated by almost everyone who interact with the digital gadgets(no matter how much) but the question here arises why is it so?

There have been other successful releases by the tech giant Microsoft but this particular release seems to be very much awaited. The reason… is explained below.

Microsoft previously made an announcement declaring Windows 10 to be the last version but seems like they are willing to make corrections to the blunders the designers served to the local public through Windows 10 updates. One of the reasons why the officials though about introducing #Windows11. 

The previous version updates were a series of bloopers! Yes believe it or not the launch of Windows 10 was colossal but when it was deployed in reality with its updates, it was nothing more than many glitches. This actually happened after the release of its update in the month of October, 2018. 

Stats reflect that this update was installed by merely a population of 3 percent! Microsoft made some promising efforts like speedy logging but seems like people were not willing to accept anything then. Hence, only a handful of people allowed this update on their devices.

 

Windows 11- a Brief Insight

The word is spreading like a fire about the new windows. Windows 11 release date is still a mystery yet to be solved. The officials, however, do not make any such claim of calling the new versions as the Windows 11. They are maintaining the hype by not disclosing the details.  

If the statements are to be scrutinized then, in an official blog post, Microsoft might have given us a sneak peak into the Windows 11 release but the date on which it shall be unveiled is still zipped up.

Well, we don’t even know if there will be Windows 11. Don’t panic because seems like Microsoft is strategizing just the way Google did with Android’s latest launch. 

Google kept the craze by letting people throw assumptions at its Android Q. ‘Q’ was the mystery which eventually got resolved.

The same way, assumptions are getting intense about the Windows 11 and its release date. Microsoft’s Vice President Nick Parker in the official blog post was talking in a concealed manner about the ‘Modern Operating System’. Though, he never mentioned this OS by its name but it surely is something grand for the digital enthusiasts.

 

Features Foreseen in the Windows 11 

Unofficially, there is a video flourishing on YouTube. The creator has created previously the conceptual videos for the preceding generations of the Windows that turned out to be coherent with the original ones. His latest video covers the conceptual entities for the Windows 11

As per his video, this next and much anticipated generation of Windows shall include smart animations to woo the users, curved designs, a fresh ‘Start’ menu, and a consistent design that was not fulfilling in the previous version of Windows 10.

As per him, after Android 10, the trend of ‘dark mode’ shall hit Microsoft’s Windows 11. Adaptive cursors, a modified Search UI, and options to pin tiles to the desktop are broadly covered in the new release. Stylish themes in the same are complementary!

Now, looking at the official side, Parker said that this ‘Modern Operating System’ will primarily utilize enablers and delighters. Enablers shall be superior updates in the background without any obtrusion, explicit protection from all the malicious activities. They shall be able to build a strong connection to Wi-Fi and 5G all the times and shall support a sustained performance.

Where as, delighters shall enhance the experience of using an OS in reality. This may include excellent cloud connectivity, multi-sense interaction, smart AI, and something addressed as ‘form factor agility’ by Parker. He mentioned the PC ecosystem shall be able to deliver human-centric experiences.

Final Words

Analyzing the assumptions and statements of multiple sources, a strong statement cannot be given in the support of Windows 11 and its release date. The rumors shall continue to surface about the latest launch. There are people who are spreading the word that there shall directly be Windows 12 instead of Windows 11. 

What can we do in such situations? We can only wait for the official statements to release. Whatever be the buzz about any latest launch, Microsoft is keen to provide with the best updates and launches to everyone in this world. It does not really matter if it is following the hierarchy in the nomenclature or not. What matters is the features that they are planning to inculcate for the betterment of the human race.

So, let’s wait till the officials release anything reliable. If you have any information about Windows 11 and its release date, let the discussion begin in the comments section.
