Microsoft officially unveiled the Windows 11 operating system on June 24. The Developer Preview is now out giving us a first look at Windows 11. According to Microsoft, Windows 11 stable build will be available to all users later this year. Now, a new report has come suggesting that the first Windows 11 update will come in the second half of next year.
As you might know, Microsoft used to launch two Windows 10 updates annually. They were released in spring and fall. However, Microsoft will now be providing only one update per year. So, once the stable build is out, you will have to wait almost a year to get the next update. It’s a great step in my opinion, tracking updates would be much easier.
Microsoft also claims to provide 24 months of support to consumers and 36 months for Enterprise and Education for each new update. Also do note that Microsoft will still be pushing cumulative updates for bug fixes etc. These updates will be smaller by around 40% compared to Windows 10 which guarantees faster updates, a more stable and effective Windows experience.
New feature in Windows 11 update section
There is also a new feature coming up soon in Windows 11. It will tell you how much time restart and installing the update will take. It’s a small yet handy feature. The feature is not just limited to major Windows 11 updates but also small ones like .net frameworks, optional updates, driver updates, and more.
Microsoft Store replaces HTML with XAML
One of the biggest features of the Windows 11 is said to be an all-new Microsoft Store. Previously, Microsoft Store was built on HTML & CSS. However, now the company is said to replace it with XAML for improved performance. With the new language, issues like downloading failure of big apps will be fixed. The new Microsoft Store with XAML can download big games faster. Adobe, Zoom, OBS Studio, and Canva are already available on the new Microsoft Store. With its new business model, Microsoft Store can be a success.
