Windows 11 is the free upgrade for Windows 10, serving as the competition for macOS and Linux operating systems. It adds a completely new environment with the latest tools, taskbar and features, which will make its predecessor obsolete. However, if you don’t already have Windows, you’ll have to buy the latest version to obtain a license.
The new Microsoft OS integrates meetings on your desktop so you don’t need to deal with third-party apps. You’ll also enjoy some of its other products, such as Xbox Games Pass that will enhance your gaming experience. Finally, the new layout is designed to improve productivity so you can click on the app you need in no time.
New Windows, new tools

While the operating system launches with new tools and taskbar, the development team will be hard at work with new features over its lifespan. You can expect regular updates to security and apps.
Built-in Microsoft Teams
If your job requires having regular remote meetings, you’ll be happy to know that Windows 11 has Microsoft Teams integrated. You can register for a new account or sign in with your current one. It has all the same features, with the main difference being that it’s now part of the Windows experience.
Gamers will love Windows 11, as there are many features they’ll enjoy. With enhanced performance and Xbox Games Pass, the new experience will be exhilarating. Also, you’ll be able to play Android apps with a built-in emulator.
Snap grids and widgets
To make your life easier, Windows 11 will have a Snap layout with grids where you can place apps and games. With the click of a button, you can quickly switch to the category or pane you want to access. Widgets are also making a return, presenting you with the latest news and weather.
