The current build looks pretty stable so far. I've only found a bug with .MSI installers (icon flickering on Chrome, not sure if it's browser related) and Windows constantly trying to download features (related to language packs probably) and giving a error notification. This is probably not the final release though.It looks nice IMO, thanks for this preview! Really cool UI. Let's see how buggy will be. Remember the old days of Windows 10? It took some years until a good smooth version.
Just a detail, the TPM chip and Secure Boot requirement is only enforced on setup, you actually don't need both of these requirements to use the OS even though they are really important if you want security (but you will need to use a workaround to bypass the requirements)
11 is based on top of 10 with elements from 10X. The world moves forward with iOS and Android, so will Windows.I came here to say GNOME coming to Windows but y'all beat me to it. It also reminds me of Chrome OS a lot. Microsoft, it's ok to admit you ran out of ideas. Don't change things for the sake of change. The UI design is so ridiculously inconsistent even in the few screenshots. This is going the way of Windows Me, Vista, 8.
Calling Windows 11 a disaster before ever using it?Just in time to escape the disaster that is Windows 11.

Damn, windows is supposed to be universally accessible. To be honest, all the improvements are not exactly worth the requirements. And keeping that besides, there is obviously the issue of price and distribution. Wonder if this will really hit it off and whether it will be required for any new applicationa.
From Tron LegacyThis is probably an old build of Windows 11 as it doesn't match with what Satya Nadella said, "one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade".
At the moment it looks like they just ported Windows 10X's start menu into this one. I hope there will be more positive changes that will be revealed on June 24th.
Otherwise, I don't see why it should be called Windows 11. It's not event 10.1 at the moment. Maybe 10.00000000001. Lol.
Microsoft scrapped the upgrade cost back in 2015 with Windows 10, allowing all Windows 8.1 users to migrate for $0.00.[...] And keeping that besides, there is obviously the issue of price and distribution. Wonder if this will really hit it off and whether it will be required for any new applicationa.
Source: When will Windows 11 be available for download?
"Windows 11 is expected to release to the public this October, available as a free upgrade to all Windows 10 devices, similar to other past Windows updates. Those who wish to stick with Windows 10 will be able to do so, while a second branch of Windows 10 is likely to support enterprises unwilling to upgrade to the new version immediately. We also expected Windows 11 to be available for standalone purchase, as with all past versions of Microsoft operating systems."
