Microsoft Launches Windows 11- Informs “Phased & Measured” Rollout

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Microsoft (MSFT) has launched its latest operating system Windows 11 worldwide, claiming it to be fast and with updated features. Most distinctly, it comes with a new Start Menu, located in the middle of the taskbar, along with modernized new Settings menus and options.

Microsoft informed, however, that the rollout of Windows 11will be phased and measured”, and that “new eligible devices will be offered the upgrade first” before “in-market devices” based on reliability metrics, hardware eligibility, age of the device, and other factors. 

Microsoft has worked to make Windows a more open platform, with the integration of Amazon and other app stores in the newly launched Windows Store. On the other hand, the technology giant is still trying to tighten its control on the operating system, in Windows 11, as changing the default browser app usually from Microsoft Edge to Google Chrome will work in regards to a specific file type format unless users check an “always use this app” button instantly.

Also, the built-in search function on Windows 11 is still tied completely to the Bing search engine rather than any popular, or more private options. Windows 11 has also not been the smooth upgrade, the software giant had originally said that computers running Windows 11 would require a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chipHowever, later it said that 7th generation processors might be able to run Windows 11 and introduced a “soft floor”, a requirement by which Windows 11 could be installed through an ISO that allowed computers with the older TPM 1.2 chip to run the new operating system.

Redmond, Washington-based American multinational technology company Microsoft (MSFT) develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics, personal computers, and related services.
