Microsoft Windows 11 A Linux-based Windows?
Another rumor that has appeared in recent times is that Windows as such is a project that has ended for Microsoft. Your next operating system would no longer be based on the current NT kernel to be based on Linux . This does not necessarily mean that Windows is no longer called Windows.
To better understand this movement we can look at what Microsoft has already done with its browser. Microsoft Edge was based on the EdgeHTML engine, developed by the company itself. In view of the lack of success, Microsoft decided to abandon it and focus its efforts on a new browser based on the Chromium engine. The move has resulted in some positives. For example, Edge now has a wide range of add-ons. Of course, compatibility has improved and Microsoft is actively participating in the Chromium community, which helps to improve not only its own browser, but the rest.
Something very similar could happen with Windows. This move would also bring positive things and show a much more open and collaborative company, focused more on business and home services than on the operating system itself.
Windows 11 should fix the serious system inconsistency
Perhaps one of the fields where Microsoft has more work is in the inconsistency of the system. Modern-looking transparency menus are mixed with elements reminiscent of Windows 98.
Your competition is doing much better in this regard. For example, Apple has two very different lines of operating systems with very polished interfaces. There is no place for outdated items in them. Google also seems to have understood the importance of consistency by improving the Android interface and creating clear patterns that developers can follow.
So why doesn’t Microsoft take action and remove old components forcing developers to update their applications? Things are not so simple. Windows has such a large market share that Redmond cannot make certain changes lightly. For example, many companies have custom software that has been a large investment in the past. Suppose this software was designed for Windows XP. If Windows stops supporting it, the company will have to spend a lot of money again to adapt it or it will simply not update the system, creating a very important security gap.
The thing is so serious and so complicated at the same time that, to this day, we still have configurations that are made from the Control Panel and others that are made from the Settings app. And not to mention tools like Disk Manager that remain anchored in Windows’ deeper past.
What do we ask of Windows 11?
If we had to create a wish list to send directly to Microsoft offices, it would basically consist of three elements: security, consistency and simplicity. The new Windows 11 must improve in these aspects and become once and for all a modern and lightweight operating system. In another aspect, Microsoft continues to have a lot to do in the interface, not only to make it more consistent throughout the entire operating system, but also to adapt it correctly to any environment, be it tactile or not.
Despite all the rumors, there has been no official confirmation that we will see a Windows 11. Even if Microsoft has chosen to move from Windows 10 that does not guarantee that the next version will automatically be Windows 11. It could easily be a Windows 20, or Windows 22, if they were following the system based on the previous year. You could even remove the numbering entirely, as Apple has done with the mac OS and just call it Windows Sun Valley, or go a similar naming route after the highlights of Washington state. What would a Windows Tacoma look like?
WINDOWS 11: FEATURES
Rumor has it, the new Windows 11 will borrow the design – in large part – from the now-archived Windows 10X. This platform had a more modern centralized design with many new icons, a new start menu, and a new central taskbar. Windows 10X was designed to accommodate foldable and multi-screen devices, so we can expect this technology to make its way to Windows 11 as well.
WINDOWS 11: PRICE
As with previous updates – in recent times at least – we hope there will be no charge for users upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Also, any new desktop or laptop is likely to come with it. Embedded software. The only charge will be for those who build their own machines and are likely to follow Windows 10, with the Home edition starting at USD $ 139 ($ 2,769 MXN, approx.) And Pro starting at $ 199 (that is, about $ 3,964 MXN).
WINDOWS 11: NEW INFORMATION
With just two weeks until the Windows event, Microsoft has released a slow-motion video of its startup sounds. The 11-minute video (another coincidence?), Described as a relaxation track, combines the startup sounds of Windows 95, XP, and Windows 7 slowed by 4,000%. Although we’re not sure it will have the desired effect, let’s see if you can hold out for more than a minute. These sounds come from major releases and have become ingrained in most of our memories. Particularly the fabled Windows 95 startup that was formed by none other than Brian Eno. Does this mean that we will hear a new startup sound in Windows 11?
