5 Little-Known Facts About Microsoft’s Campus
Why is this a big deal? Rumor has it that Microsoft could announce the long-rumored “Sun Valley” visual update for Windows. This is expected to deliver a swapping user interface overhaul of Windows in a new version of the operating system that could be known as Windows 11.
For the first time since Microsoft unveiled Windows 10, there’s a reason to be very excited. On June 24, Microsoft is set to talk about “what’s next for Windows,” and it is expected to be a huge virtual affair.
Here’s everything we know about Windows 11 so far, and what we hope gets announced.
Windows 11 price and release date
This is best to be treated as a rumor for now, but if Windows 11 ends up being announced at the June 24 event, it could likely come out later this fall or early next year. Based on how previous Windows releases went, Microsoft would first need to beta test the operating system with Windows Insiders before releasing it to laptop makers and the general public. It has already prepared for this by pausing Windows Insider builds for the next few weeks while it “tests the servicing pipeline.”
As far as pricing goes, we can’t say much in this area. But what we can judge based on the price of Windows 10, since the pricing of that OS didn’t change much over Windows 8 or Windows 7. If Microsoft were to continue with its theme of “Pro” and “Home” consumer versions of Windows, then expect Windows 11 Home to come in at around $119 and Windows 11 Pro at $200. That’s the price of new fresh copies, obviously.
Again, we’ll have to wait and see what Microsoft decides to do. There is even the chance that Windows 11 could be a normal optional free “upgrade” to Windows 10, in the same way that Windows 8.1 was for Windows 8 or Windows 10 was for Windows 7.
Or, Microsoft could just continue along with its current “Windows as a Service” phase. With that, Microsoft could keep updating current Windows 10, giving Windows 11 elements as a featured experience pack in Windows 10 to everyone who wants it. And that would all happen while giving other users an option to stay on the current versions of Windows 10 known as 21H1.
