Although Microsoft’s upcoming event is still a few days away, details about the upcoming build of the next version of Windows have already leaked. Also, the screenshot leaks confirm that rumors about the Windows 11 branding are true.

 

Update: We managed to get a copy of the unreleased Windows 11 build, and already put together our initial thoughts. Spoiler alert: there’s a lot of Windows 10 in this Windows 11.

I'm not a fan of the start menu being in the centre. The applications being in the centre isn't really an issue for me. Luckily, someone who was using Windows 11 on Twitter did confirm that you can move the icons to the left like in previous versions of Windows. They were also using the dark theme which I did think looked a lot better than the light theme used in that screenshot.

 

One thing I am hoping for, is that it's going to be a free upgrade to Windows 10, like 7/8 to 10 was. I don't really want to buy Windows again, especially since the amount of money that Microsoft get from consumers like us is negligible compared to what they get from corporations, and especially their server software. People who bought an OEM desktop/laptop with Windows installed on it aren't going to spend upwards of $100 to get a new version of Windows, they'll just stick to whatever they have installed. Mac updates are free to Mac users, so why not Windows? Except obviously the corporations, otherwise Microsoft won't make much money.

 

I did think that Windows 10 was supposed to be the last ever "version" of Windows. At least that's what Microsoft said when they announced it. Maybe they just don't want to go the Mac method of being MacOS 10 for 15 years, especially now that Apple has abandoned that with Big Sur (2020) being MacOS 11 and the upcoming Monterey being MacOS 12.

A free upgrade transition is something I am hoping for. However I am not sure MS will be as desperate this time as they were when trying to get people from Win 7 to Win 10. I guess we will see.

Well, I did see someone say that Windows 10 Pro to Windows 11 Pro upgrade is going to be free on twitter. So I wouldn't 100% believe it but it does seem like a very likely thing for Microsoft to do. It makes the £220 price tag for Windows 10 Pro seem not so bad. Especially if this is a thing that Microsoft are going to do indefinitely.

Apple do have a dark theme and they have had it since at least High Sierra in 2017 that I know of. From videos that I have seen, a dark theme is still there and it's a lot better than the Windows 10 dark theme.
