Microsoft officially launched its new Windows 11 operating system during its “What’s Next for Windows” virtual launch event.
Microsoft’s new operating system featured a number of elements inspired by Apple’s macOS like a centered Dock, rounded corners for windows, and more.
Also, Microsoft took the opportunity to take a shot at Apple’s App Store commission as it officially announced the new Windows 11 Store wherein developers can keep 100% of revenue.
According to Microsoft, Windows 11 had been thoroughly redesigned to be faster, more efficient, and more beautiful to give its users a sense of calm and inspiration, adding that Windows 11 updates were said to be 40% smaller and will happen in the background.
Windows 11 operating system’s updated UI featured a new macOS-style Dock that brought the Windows Start button and apps to the center of the screen.
In addition, rounded corners were currently used across the operating system and the softer look was seen throughout Windows 11 apps, menus, and new themes.
A handy feature in Windows 11 operating system was the new Snap layouts that let its users quickly snap apps into different window configurations and part of that will be Snap Group layouts wherein Windows can remember where users’ apps went.
Another big announcement was that the Windows 11 Store will allow developers to use their own commerce engine and to keep 100% of the revenue. For developers that wanted to continue to use the Windows commerce engine, Microsoft said that they will enjoy the “leading revenue share”.
Windows 11 will arrive this fall as a free update. Meanwhile, users can join the Windows Insider beta program in order to test out the new operating system.
