If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a Microsoft Event happening this week! Thursday June 24th at 11AM Eastern US time. That’ll be Friday 1AM here in Australia. Microsoft made the announcement with a short teaser video that showed sun rays shining through a window, seemingly forming the number 11 in the foreground. And the teaser line was – Join us to see what’s next for Windows. Microsoft also released an 11 minute video of Windows start up sounds slowed down 4,000 percent. No matter which way you look at it, it all seem to indicate one thing…
Hang on, wasn’t Windows 10 supposed to be the last ever version of Windows?
Well, your certainly not alone in thinking that. Microsoft had been very secretive around Windows 11 and this announcement came as a surprise to many. But a week before the event, the leaks started. An early build of Windows 11 made it’s way onto the interwebz, and videos started showing up on news websites pretty quickly.
So we dug around and got our hands on a copy to try. I did it so that you don’t have to! This is very unfinished, beta software. It’s rough, and it’s not something that you want on your computer at all! Early pre-release builds like this one are for testing, not just functionality, but testing concepts. A lot of the tests fail, and don’t make the cut. So there’s a high chance that things like the new start menu layout will not be there in the final release! At least not as they are right now.
If you want to hear my thoughts on Windows 11 and some of the things I personally want to see changed or updated, watch our video.
We release weekly tech videos, and you can count on some more Windows 11 coverage as soon as we can download the official release to manufacturing or Windows Insider builds. So hit that subscribe button, and ring bell to be the first to know!
