Here we are, Windows 11!
Some things we know so far:

System Requirements
The system requirements for W11 are posted here, with a couple of notable aspects:

User Interface
The look of the UI skin is being updated with translucent windows. The start menu has been redesigned, accessible from the now (forcibly, currently mandatory) centered taskbar.

Windows Subsystem for Android
Based on Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) allows for running Android apps on Windows, with support for sideloading APKs. WSA is one of a few ways in which they are continually pushing the Windows Store.

Gaming
Windows 11 provides support for "Auto HDR" for better colors, and DirectX 12 Ultimate, what seems to be a variation of the D3D12 API but with guarantee of some enhancements such as raytracing.


This is everything I'm aware of off the top of my head - I realized we don't yet have a W11 thread, so there we go. There's more details released, of course, but these are most of the ones that people are talking about. If you want to see it for yourself, there's an early leaked build ISO out there - by now, you can also try it legitimately through the Windows Insider program.

WSA is pretty cool, and the new UI looks nice, although I know the centered taskbar is going to cause a storm if it stays un-changeable. The TPM and CPU requirements are going to be even more rough, if those stay the way they are. If this is the case, then perhaps the migration to W11 will be of a much smaller scale than that of W11 or W10. In general, there looks to be little pressure on users to switch - perhaps MS will push an advertising campaign within the W10 OS for users to migrate?

i'm surprised they honestly made another windows, i thought they would just improve on 10 and go from there

i usually never get os' at the beginning of their launches because of how unstable they can be at the start imo, so i'll probably just wait for a few patches, or hell, maybe when 10 dies lol

Yeah, this whole thing is a little out of left field. I think these heightened requirements are going to give MS a really hard time getting people to move over. Hell, I see some people still using W7...

I realized we don't yet have a W11 thread, so there we go.

There was a thread for a preview build, posted 2,5 years ago here. It seems they made some changes since then.

I plan on switching to Mintnux in the near future but I'm also considering installing a stripped-down Windows 10 OS or whatever.

I hate to burst your bubble here, but that preview build does not exist and is a fake created by me in MS Paint. That look cold exist if someone wanted to skin it for an 11 theme. Can't believe I got you, lol.

I have Windows 11, but only one laptop with it, and this copy is apart of a multi-boot with Vista,7, and 8.1 on Legacy boot. I should note I have absolutely no laptop's with Windows 10. In fact, I am using Windows Vista with Extended Kernel (as made by Win32) as my daily driver OS, primarily because the laptop with it (A Dell Latitude E6530 Ivy Bridge) blows my other computers out of the water in terms of performance. It has 16GB of RAM, a 4TB SSD (I have 7 installed alongside Vista), and performance powerful enough to emulate GameCube/Wii games with little lag.

If you're saying the official build of 11 looks worse than my made up build, I thank you! Now if a theme could be created based off of what I made.

P.S. I created it in Game Maker 8.0 Pro, not MS Paint.

Hate to burst your bubble, but no, you didn't get me, and I don't think anyone would actually believe your old post was real. Sarcasm doesn't really transfer well over written text, but come on. Also I'm sure salty isn't actually saying your fake looks better than the real thing, he's just joking along.
