Next June 24 will be the presentation day of the new operating system that Microsoft is preparing, Windows 11.
The software developed by the American company will be available in October this year. However, many users are already asking questions about the operation of the current operating system, Windows 10. The company didn’t confirm if the upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 will be free.

Microsoft Windows 11 known features
At the moment this is what is known regarding the arrival of the new Microsoft operating system:
The new Windows will come with a series of new features regarding the platform’s interface. This means that there will be newly designed icons to change the user experience. Likewise, a dark mode feature will be added.
There are some expectations about what may be the new Microsoft Store. According to rumors developers will be able to submit their apps without packaging them, and they will also be able to host them on their own CDN, which means they won’t actually have to be distributed by Microsoft, just through the Microsoft storefront.
It was also revealed that with Windows 11, devices will have support for 64-bit application emulation.
What will happen to Windows 10?
Some experts say that the company may split this year’s fall Windows update into two versions, one for consumers and one for business and enterprise customers.
The company appears to be experimenting with two versions of the operating system under the same codename 21H2: 21H2 (minor update) and CO21H2 (CO = Cobalt, Sun Valley).
At the same time, Windows 11 would be released based on Cobalt and with the full Sun Valley experience.
In other words, both operating systems will coexist together for a long time, at least that is what is speculated, we will have to wait a few days for all these leaks to become official.
