Alleged screenshots of Microsoft's upcoming operating system, the Windows 11, were leaked to the web ahead of its June 24 unveiling. The screenshots reveal a user interface that has several tie-ins with the current Windows 10, although enough is there to set it apart. For starters, the Start "menu" (if you can call it that), looks less like a menu, and more like a pop-out window with icons and actions, much like the macOS Finder. Icons pinned to the taskbar or open, are centered. The clock and system tray is still where it should be.

Windows Explorer features a familiar ribbon-type user interface, although there are changes to the icons. It's laid out exactly like in Windows 10. A thing to notice here is the window theme itself, which is single-tone, and with rounded edges. The "News and Interests" menu that surfaced in the recent Windows 10 update is more full-featured. User interface is only a fraction of what makes up a Windows major version, and Windows 11 is said to feature major under-the-hood changes, such as a new scheduler that's better suited for the upcoming hybrid x86 core processors from Intel and AMD.

I dunno... stability, security, usability, flexibility, customization... those are pretty important.

Bring back the Windows 7 transparent shiny gloss to the windows/taskbar, looked way better than this current matt flat look we have now days.

Classic MS - we don't know what to do so let's move things around and see what happens.
You simply have to use Teams for month to see how chaotic they are in their execution.

To be honest Vista and 7 were the best looking OSes from Microsoft ever. Since W8 it's been all downhill.

Um, what? Have you been living under the rock? This has been the idea since Windows 8.

So. Much. Padding.

Every icon is a million miles apart and you can't tighten the grid. Just wasting screen space for the hell of it.

Not sure what you mean. Company I work for, switched to Teams a couple of months ago as their main webex service. Have been using it at work every single day since then. Haven't experienced any major issues with it.

So you must have been having some meetings right? Participants displayed above, next week on the right, then arranged in a grid. Three people in a call, their icons are displayed in dead center so it looks like Teams' cross-eyed. "Let's add applause action".
And yet they still can't get the stupid screen sharing right. Just today I was able to turn on the camera of person that was sharing the screen by clicking... invisible icon that was in the correct place.
The worse part is that MS has convinced people that they no longer need to provide people RDP access, they simply have a meeting and share their screen to you and grant you control, right?

Those new icons look like my first attempts at SVG pictograms in Inkscape... Current set is at least passable, I hope they'll leave the option to switch back.
OSXy taskbar is a good thing. I've been using something like this on Ubuntu and older versions of Windows(since XP), but ended up being too lazy to find a solution to realign my app buttons in W10.
The rest - don't care about and will likely disable. Can't even stand their new weather widget near system tray, which requires you to sign in with MS account in order to change locale and location.

That's what I thought before, but given their recent history I think Nokia destroyed Nokia. Their refreshed smartphone business was promising, but formally lasted a year with one product lineup cycle. No proper flagships since my Nokia 8, no OLED models, not a hint of "legendary reliability"... everything is sub-mediocre and overpriced, even feature phones.

In terms of 'mobile devices' I mean devices like tablets such as their surface tab. This Ui looks very android or macOS like

It must have something new for DirectX. ..Vulkan 2.0 should be here by the end of the year or first quarter next year. I just know Vulkan 2.0 is is being worked on...

It just seems somehow right that Microsoft declared Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows then not even change the name for the next version. I just thought they meant they were going to change them name of their operating system to something else.

OK, yeah, now that you mention it, I agree. I constantly look for my participant's list when I share my screen. Pretty annoying alright. Ok, you got me on board for your cause :)

No thanks.

Got my hands on a Windows 11 .iso, time to test this out.

It's not for everyone I guess.

Cool, if you can be bothered let me/us know how Win11 is, cheers.
