Microsoft has launched Windows 11. This new operating system will be offered free-of-charge to users of eligible Windows 10 PCs. You can get it via Windows Update or download it via Microsoft's website. Details on what's new can be found at the Microsoft Windows Blog. The biggest downside is that Windows 11 requires a relatively new processor as well as TPM 2.0, which means a lot of slightly older PCs are not able to make the upgrade. Systems running Windows 10 will receive support until October 14, 2025.
From the new Start menu and Taskbar, to each sound, font and icon you see, the team thought through every pixel and detail to bring you a more modern, fresh and beautiful experience. With Start at the center you have quick access to the content and apps you care about and through the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 (sold separately) you can see recent files you’ve been working on regardless of which device you were using, even if it was an Android or iOS device.

To get you closer to the content and information you care about we’re introducing Widgets, a new personalized feed powered by AI and the web. Opening your personalized feed with a click or a swipe from the left is smooth and seamless as Widgets slides across your screen like a sheet of glass. Whether it’s glancing at your day through Outlook calendar and To-Do list integrations, catching up on the latest headlines or tomorrow’s weather forecast, or viewing your favorite OneDrive photo memories, Widgets bring everything you love to your fingertips.
