Windows 11 and DirectX 13 will be released at the end of 2020: I welcome everyone. Since I am a Microsoft employee and an internal tester of Windows builds, from time to time I release insider information on the channel and this release will not be an exception. So, firstly, Microsoft refuses to develop Windows 10, as the company realized that it was not moving in the right direction. Spring Creators Update will be the last and no Redstone 5 should be expected. If you recall, Microsoft in the days of Windows 8 stated that there would be no more new license plate parts for Windows. The same thing we heard in the case of Windows 10, but Microsoft can twist around the finger. Windows 7 was released in 2009, Windows 8 in 2012, Windows 10 in 2015, and in turn, Windows 11, according to the secret roadmap, will be released at the end of 2020. The new OS will return to its roots and will be very similar to Windows 7. Most users liked the Windows 10 version of LTSB (LTSC) and Microsoft decided to rework the system globally based on the feedback from these users. The company will completely cut out Metro applications and concentrate on classic Win32 applications, because according to Microsoft, the future lies with them. Aero and familiar transparency will return to the system interface.
The Microsoft Store will be completely cut out of the system, and standard applications will return to their places, as well as games like the Kosyna and the Spider. Xbox services will also be sawn out of the system, and they will be replaced by the Steam service, which will be preinstalled into the operating system. Later, system-level support for applications like Origin and Uplay is expected.
Windows 11 will be as easy and affordable.
Various tracking services will be completely cut out of the system, since too much criticism was addressed to the company because of this, and the tracking itself greatly damaged the sales of the system.
Internet Explorer will also return. In Windows 10, Microsoft replaced it with the new Edge browser, but the browser was so unsuccessful that the company decided to return with the good old Internet Explorer. The browser will be updated to version 12 and will be built on the highly modified Trident engine, so the new IE will receive support for modern web technologies. Many useful things, such as extensions and the ability to read various PDF-documents will be possible in the new version of Internet Explorer.
Still resume developing Windows Media Player. The new 13th version will receive a modern interface and support for new audio formats.
The Start menu will return to the classic look without the use of Metro-tiles and other heresies. But among other things, Windows 11 will receive a function for managing tabs in Explorer, which has been rumored for a long time.
Skype will also be integrated into Windows 11, but only the desktop version, since nobody particularly liked its Modern version.
In addition, Microsoft, along with Windows 11, will also release DirectX 13. The new API should become an updated version of DirectX 12, since DX12 itself turned out to be a rather crude application programming interface, but it is worth noting that only new video cards will support DirectX 13. New The API will be several times faster than the DirectX 12 API. Although this sounds incredible, the fact is that Microsoft is also involved in the field of artificial intelligence and the development of a quantum computer. Some of the developments will enter the new application programming interface, including a new technology for tracing light rays. Games with support for DirectX 13 are expected next year and in theory this API will repeat the success of DirectX 9 and DirectX 11.
The upcoming Office 2021 will now be integrated into the system, and Windows 11 itself will be completely free.
In general, Microsoft is trying to make Windows 11 an ideal system that will be perfect in everything and suit every user. Microsoft realized its mistakes, Windows 11 will be as easy and affordable.
Do not listen to people who say something about Windows 10 and about a single OS, all this is not true. This year there will be Windows 11, and in 2022 – Windows 12. Windows 13, Windows 12 should generally raise the functionality to the Absolute, but so far the development has concentrated only on Windows 11.
