Windows 11 is released

Microsoft announces Windows 11, generally available by the holidays

Microsoft today officially announced Windows 11, the next version of its desktop operating system.

Microsoft plans to release Windows 11 to the general public by the holidays, so we can probably expect it sometime around late November.

You will now also be able to run Android apps on Windows. These apps will seem like native apps that can be integrated into the taskbar.

Windows 11 will come with Teams built-in.

Microsoft promises better graphics for gaming thanks to Auto HDR, a feature that’s already available on Xbox.

    Last month, Microsoft announced its plans to natively embed Adobe Acrobat PDF technology in its browser Edge. The new experience is designed to further enhance the PDF experience for Windows 11 and Windows 10 users. As it happens, the experience has already started shipping to some users as part of Microsoft’s latest update to the Stable Channel, Microsoft Edge version 111.0.1661.44….

    Devin Coldewey / TechCrunch:
    Microsoft adds native support for rar, 7-zip, tar, gz, and other archive formats to Windows 11, via the libarchive open-source project

    28 years later, Windows finally supports RAR files

    It’s 1999, and my friends and I are surfing warez sites using Internet Explorer on our 98SE gaming rig. Finally we push past the scams and porn to find an FTP server with a list of files labeled “.rar, .r00, .r01, r.02…” But what the hell are these?

    “Oh, it’s segmented. You have to download this program to expand those. It’s called WinRAR. Way better than WinZip.”

    “Do we have to pay for it?”

    “No…but if you’re as cheap as I think you are, it’ll keep bugging you to for a quarter century until, in the grim darkness of 2023, Windows 11 finally supports the format natively.”

    Windows 11 Will Let You Force Quit Apps From the Taskbar

    Even when you close all the windows from an application on Windows, it might still be running in the background, or the close button might not work at all. Microsoft is trying to address this with a new taskbar feature coming to Windows 11.
