Nearly six years on from the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has unveiled the Windows 11 operating system.
Windows 11 features a fresh, more modern design and some new features, including new ways to connect to your favourite news, games and content. Users of Windows 11 will need to get used to having the START menu centrally situated, after it has lived in the bottom left-hand corner for so many years.
Microsoft reported that Windows 11 will be available as a free download for existing Windows users. At the launch on Thursday 24th June 2021, Microsoft stated that the upgrade will begin to roll out to eligible Windows 10 PCs later this year and will continue into 2022. No specific dates have yet been announced.
First Class Technologies is in the process of evaluating the system and will be helping clients transition to Windows 11. The hardware specification is not demanding, but careful consideration needs to be taken before deploying it, to ensure a smooth roll out.
First Class Technologies will be able to run a check on your PCs, to make sure they have the correct requirements to run Windows 11, as machines must have a trusted platform module (TPM) installed for the new operating system to work.
If you are interested in this next generation of Windows, or if you haven’t yet updated to Windows 10 and would like to make the switch to prepare your machines for the Windows 11 upgrade, please get in touch with First Class Technologies.
