Microsoft Windows 11 Has Been Released - Windows 11 Insider Preview Build
The much awaited Windows 11 has been released (though a slice of the pie) according to reports coming directly from tech giants, Microsoft Corporation. They released the first Windows 11 Insider Preview build for developers to test the new experience before Windows 11 is generally available later this year. Reports even suggest that it may be available for everyone as early as October, 2021.
Windows 11 Features
A few of the features shown at the virtual Windows event last week are included in the Windows 11 preview, including the centrally located Start menu (you can also take it to the LEFT) and taskbar, as well as new themes and sounds. Besides the launch, Microsoft appears to be suggesting that the full Windows 11 may be launched on October 20. Microsoft has also provided widgets that you can look at by clicking on the dedicated “Widgets Icon” in the taskbar. You can also swipe from the left using the touch bar/display or hitting Win + W on the keyboard to access the widgets.
Microsoft & Widgets --- Isn’t it fun to wait and see !!!!
For Windows 11, there are, by default, widgets for calendar, weather, local traffic, Microsoft To Do lists, OneDrive photos, sports and esports, stock watchlist, and tips. The widgets section also includes a news feed section to show personalized news content if you are into that kind of thing. If you are not, you can easily shut it off.

It is however advised to download the first Windows 11 preview only on secondary devices as it includes some known issues. These include limited taskbar that will not be shown across multiple monitors, unavailability of the ‘Power mode' setting on the Power & battery page, and misaligned widgets on external monitors. There are also many bugs that could impact your day-to-day experience...Microsoft

To download the first Windows 11 Insider Preview build on your Windows 10 Laptop or Desktop, you will need to enroll in the Windows Insiders programme and then visit Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program. Microsoft is providing the testing build specifically on compatible machines, though it has brought some changes in the minimum hardware requirement for testing Windows 11 on a diverse range of systems.

System Specification for Windows 11
The minimum requirements remain the same — greater than 1GHz and dual-core processors, 4GB RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage. Microsoft has also temporarily removed its PC Health Check app that was meant to allow Windows 10 users to see whether their PCs are compatible with Windows 11. The app will, however, be back around the time of Windows 11's general availability.
Windows 11 Release Date (Suggested)
Alongside the release of the first Windows 11 preview, Microsoft is supposedly hinting at an October release date for Windows 11. According to The Verge reports, the release date was suggested multiple times during the Windows event last week. Those hints include a Microsoft Teams message from Surface engineer Stevie Bathiche that appeared on a Windows 11 screen showcased during the virtual event. The message addressed to Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay reads, “Excited to turn it up to 11… can't wait for October!”

Personally, I won’t advise any of my friend or family to install Windows 11 yet because, well, is still on its testing face and have lots of bugs that may ruin your beautiful day. But for my enemies, I could care less..lol.
I understand is difficult to ask someone to be patient and trust me, if there is a medication you can give to someone and it will make the person patient, it could have saved a lots and lots and I mean lots of lives. But please guys, be patient till the full release of Windows 11 in October, 2021. And also remember why a RAT is used as a test subject in the lab. Don’t become one “LAB RAT”.
