Windows has been with us since 1985. Over the years, it has evolved and taken over the world of computing without any problems. Competitors like Linux and the Mac have not been able to challenge the operating system with such a large user base that will last for years to come. While I was working at an Apple Premium Reseller, many people think that Mac is the future when Windows is a thing of the past. That’s why people came to the shop to buy a Mac machine. But looking at the stats of today, Windows is still very much dominant. There are undoubtedly some people that think the Windows era is over. With the introduction of the Apple Silicon chips, there might be a disruption of some kind when new computers are bought. But the war is far from over.
Today, I will feature the Windows 11 OS that was just released worldwide and in my country Malaysia. So we will see what is new and whether you are better off with or without upgrading to the latest OS.
General Info of Windows 11
Windows 11 was released to the general public on October the 5th of 2021. Many people had already tested out the OS before it was even released. Thanks to the Microsoft Insider Program, many people tried it and said it is very stable even at its testing stages. All new computers will now be installed with Windows 11. All Windows 10 users will be able to upgrade to the new OS. For all users with an earlier Windows version than Windows 10, you need to install Windows 10 and then upgrade it to Windows 11. It might be a little bit more complicated for all those users that have an older version. Usually, it’s because your computer might be ancient that run an earlier version. You might want to consider buying a new computer for Windows 11 to work if you happen to be running a Windows that is earlier than Windows 10. It is time to upgrade your computer if you haven’t done so in the past 7 or so years.
