Articles about Windows 11

Windows 11 is Microsoft’s latest iteration of the Windows operating system even though its predecessor Windows 10 was touted to be the last version users would ever need to upgrade to. Microsoft’s Windows operating system has been coded in a mixture of C, C++, C#, and assembly language. Microsoft’s first version of Windows broke cover in July 1993. It initially supported only workstations and servers, not personal computers. The latest Windows 11 operating system was announced by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at the Build 2021 conference for developers in June 2021. It supports x64 and ARM64-based systems and is available in approximately 110 languages. As of August 2021, Windows 11 is available only to Windows Insider Program members through the Developer channel. A worldwide release is expected later in 2021. In the features department, Windows 11 is the first Windows operating system that comes with native support for Android applications. Besides this, the user interface also gets a redesign that’s characterized by center-aligned taskbar icons, a widgets pane, new icon themes, and floating windows.
