    Khushii21 , Jun 25, 2021 :
    Microsoft unveiled their next big operating system for PC yesterday and the hype for it was crazy ! This comes after 6 years of Windows 10 launch and not to say but the hopes were really high .Here are the key highlights of the launch :

    1. Teams Integration with Windows 11 :
    On Windows 10, Skype was part of their operating system but in Windows 11 , Microsoft has built in Microsoft Teams which I find more useful and organized.
    The users can start a meeting or join one with just a click from the taskbar !
    Skype won’t come installed by default now though it will be available on the store .

    2. Changes in UI :
    One of the biggest upgrades of Windows 11 is probably their User Interface . They brought about a lot of changes in it although it just feels a lot like Windows 10X . Microsoft was to launch Windows 10X later this year but they scrapped this idea and planned to launch Windows 11 altogether . The taskbar design is the same as Windows 10X with some additional features like advanced window snapping . I feel there is a lot of MacOS design influence in the sense of more rounded elements and blur in the background.

    3. Windows updates are 40 percent smaller :
    Microsoft claims that now the updates will be 40 percent smaller, running in the background so as to not interfere with your work ! This will result in downloading the updates faster .

    4. Gaming aspect :
    Windows 11 is introducing a new feature called Auto HDR. This feature allows users to access High Dynamic Range (HDR) content for DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 games .

    5. Integrated Android apps :
    This is the biggest update of all time ! Mirosoft is adding support for Android apps on Windows 11 via the Amazon App store . Be right back guys, I am busy throwing my phone off lol !

    6. Easier transition from monitor to laptop :
    The new Operating system has introduced features called Snap Groups and Snap Layouts in order to make your work experience more organized and proficient. Plugging and Unplugging from a monitor can be done more easily now without losing where your open windows are located .

    For those who doubt, that's Intel 7000-series or higher. And on the AMD side, most ryzen CPU's van enable it in bios as a firmware feature.

    not really a minimum requirement tbh, it’s a “soft floor requirement”

    Indeed, otherwise it would have exluded a lot of PC's from their new OS'

    Mostly because Legacy BS. 11 cut down on some legacy restrictions I saw.

    The board has a TPM header but no TPM installed....so it will just refuse to install from an unmodified ISO bootable.

    Trying on a couple of older boards over the weekend

    that pentium only supports TPM1.3 anyways so even if you had the module.
