After teasing for weeks, Microsoft will finally unveil its next-generation operating system today. Although Microsoft has not officially announced the name or version of its next major version of the Windows operating system, a recently leaked ISO revealed that it is indeed Windows 11.
Before telling you more about Windows 11, you can watch today’s live event by visiting the official Microsoft link. It will begin at 11 a.m Eastern Time.
Windows 11 is expected to come with several new features. The leaked build shows that there will be a new Start menu, centered taskbar icons, rounded corners, widgets, a new OOBE experience, a better snap feature, a new Store, new icons, and wallpapers.
We like to believe that Microsoft will pack Windows 11 with more features than the ones found in the leaked build. In our opinion, a new Start menu, new OOBE, new icons, native Android apps support, wallpapers do not warrant a new version, considering that Microsoft had announced that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows operating system during its reveal in 2014.
Avid Windows users who have been closing following Windows news on the internet know that most of the features mentioned above were initially developed for the abandoned Windows 10X.
Microsoft is expected to offer Windows 11 as a free upgrade to existing Windows users as it did with Windows 10. We expect the RTM version of Windows 11 to be available in the last quarter of 2021.
Microsoft released Windows 10 back in July 2015. Windows 10 now has more than one billion active users worldwide. The latest version of Windows 10 is 21H1.
