Windows 11 is coming, I’m just hoping Windows 11 won’t be the next Windows Vista. In case you don’t know the Windows Vista story, here’s the long story short: After huge success with Windows XP back in 2001, Microsoft made a wrong move with Windows Vista, it was visually great OS with all the visual enhancements and widgets here and there good but has very low compatibility with previous hardware and software. Today, Microsoft is pretty successful with Windows 10 – mainly thanks for the high compatibility with previous hardware and software and also free upgrades Microsoft offered for Windows 7 and Windows 8 PC and the pretty stable OS. Hopefully history won’t repeat itself and this time Microsoft will do it right with Windows 11.
Take a look at the short video below show-casing Windows 11 features.
I love the new icons and their look and feel as well as their arrangements, the Snap Layout feature where you can easily arrange multiple windows with the templates given and the tight integration with Android apps, which hopefully make it more seamless for people to switch from PC to smartphone and vice versa. What about you? What’s your favorite new Windows 11 features? Give your comments and thoughts on the comment section below.

Microsoft has just announced the next iteration of Windows: Windows 11. Good thing is that, as long as you are running on Windows 10, you can get free upgrade to Windows 11. Yes, you read it right. That’s what Microsoft promised us during their Windows 11 Livestream event.
However, being the successor to Windows 10, Windows 11 has some higher new requirements compared to Windows 10. Use the following steps shared below to ensure your PC is not only eligible but also compatible with Windows 11.
