Are You Prepared for Windows 11/Server 2022?
Windows 11 is a free upgrade for anyone using Windows 10, as Microsoft is delivering this new update in phases. The plan is for all compatible PCs to have the opportunity to update to Windows 11 by the middle of 2022. While Microsoft will continue to support Windows 10 through 2025, it's a good idea to learn about all of the changes to help you determine if it's worth making the switch.
How is Windows 11 Better Than Windows 10?
One of the changes in upgrading to Windows 11 is that it improves the overall performance of your computer. The new system greatly improves upon memory management, as it favors the applications you are currently running to avoid any performance issues, even if it's operating at a 90% CPU load. Other performance changes include the PC waking up from sleep mode faster, and you will notice that the computer runs more efficiently with the Edge browser.
Other Changes to Consider
Another difference between Windows 10 and 11 is that the Start Menu and taskbar are centered on the screen. The new taskbar is also less cluttered than its predecessor, making it easier for you to view recently opened files or pinned apps for quicker access. Microsoft Teams is integrated throughout the OS, making it simple to collaborate with others in different locations. The app store in Windows 11 is redesigned to make it easier to locate apps, and it will also support Android apps through the Amazon Appstore.
Windows Server 2022
Windows Server 2022 was recently released as it offers greater security capabilities against advanced cyber threats. Other changes include Azure hybrid capabilities, enhanced networking performance, and greater storage options. Application improvements also boost performance, which makes it a great option for anyone considering an upgrade.
