In presenting Windows 11, Microsoft has repeatedly stressed that the requirements of hybrid work have been taken into account in the process of redesigning the new operating system.

In today’s world of work and distance learning, PCs are more than just word computers and app platforms: they are our window to the world. They connect us with our colleagues, friends, students and family members; they connect our work, education and personal life. As a result, Microsoft emphasized, our computer experience when we work, teach and learn must be more personal.

Windows 11 reimagines Windows so as to offer new experiences that work in response to how you work today.

Customer experience is more important than ever, not only for productivity, but also for employee satisfaction and retention and to attract new talents; as well as, in education, for student involvement.

Windows 11 highlights Microsoft, offering a more fluid and personal computer experience that does not compromise performance, security and manageability.

Many users often have different windows open during the day, while working on documents, presentations and spreadsheets. With Windows 11, Microsoft wanted to improve the way users interact with these windows: how they organize them, place them in specific areas of the screen, group them together and call up layouts when you need them.

This requires features such as Snap layouts, Snap groups and Desktops. But, of course, daily productivity involves not only the operating system, but also the Office environment. And there will be, highlights Microsoft, also visual improvements in Office that exploit the features of Windows 11. This will provide users with a simpler and seamless PC experience in all applications based on Fluent design language and system.

For example, Dark mode. Microsoft Office now adapts to the Windows theme so that users can enjoy visual refresh between modes.

Windows 11 is built on the consistent, compatible and familiar basis of Windows 10 that It teams already know. You can plan, prepare, distribute, manage and update Windows 11 in a similar way to how you do it today for Windows 10. And when Windows 11 is available in the Windows Insider Program, Windows Enterprise and Education customers can also test it on Azure Virtual Desktop.

Many customers have offered their feedback to Microsoft by saying that an annual update works better for their organizations, and a simplified support plan makes implementation easier. So, it has highlighted Microsoft, Windows 11 will be updated annually with 24 months of support for Home or Pro editions, and 36 months of support for Enterprise and Education editions.

All these components work together in the background to keep users safe without sacrificing the quality, performance or experience of use. Microsoft is then working closely with hardware partner manufacturers. The new set of hardware security requirements that comes with Windows 11 is designed to build a base that is even stronger and more attack resistant.

Indeed, Microsoft pointed out, the peculiar journey in security with Windows 11 dates back to 2019, when the company announced the first PC secure-core. This has been a major evolution in digital security, according to Microsoft.

Secured-core PCs, developed in collaboration with PC and chip manufacturers partners, apply best security practices to firmware Secured-core PCs are twice as resistant to infections as conventional PCs, said Microsoft.

Together with industry partners, Microsoft has only processed more than 30 billion authentications in 2020 and protected users from 30 billion email threats and almost 6 billion endpoint threats.

While you face the transition to Windows 11, Microsoft will continue to support users in using Windows 10. Redmond’s company will release Windows 10, version 21H2 in the second half of 2021 with new updates and improvements.
