Like other versions of Windows before it, Windows 11 has some requirements that your systems must meet before you can install it. We’ll be going into a bit more detail about what these requirements are, why they are in place, and what they may mean for you or your organisation.
The developers of Windows 10 have decided not to try to reinvent the wheel this time; instead, they’ve built on the solid foundation and structure of Windows 10 to bring some improved features, enhanced security, better compatibility, and a more intuitive interface. Windows 11 is much more like a major patch for Windows 10 than a complete upgrade to a different operating system version, and most of it will be familiar to users coming from Windows 10, or even some earlier versions of Windows.
Windows 11 is built with the remote working environment in mind – so much has changed since 2019, especially about how we work, communicate, and connect with others – and it’s clear that Microsoft feels it is important that our Windows devices reflect this. Whether using a Desktop, Laptop or Surface, streamlined multi-device workflows, even between operating systems, can now be more easily achieved.
Here are some of the most prominent and interesting features of Windows 11 that we’ll be going into over the coming weeks:
We’ll be covering all of these topics and more in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled, and have a great start to the new year!
