What to expect in Windows 11: former Microsoft premier Kevin Stratvert on the new upgrade
Come on, how much has Windows 11 really changed compared to Windows 10? To paraphrase a certain Spine tap guitarist, is it really worth going up to eleven?
Kevin Stratvert hears this question all the time, and based on his experience so far, his answer is yes. Stratvert is a former Microsoft program manager who left the company to devote himself full time to his job as a YouTube creator, producing how-to videos on Microsoft and other software and services.
Stratvert is joining us this week on the GeekWire podcast to anticipate the launch of Windows 11 on October 5, giving an idea of what to expect.
We’re talking about the new Windows 11 user interface, overall performance improvements, centered Start menu, Windows 11 widgets, feature upgrades for multiple virtual desktops in Windows, Microsoft Teams Chat integration, the updated Your Phone app, hardware requirements for Windows 11., and Microsoft’s plan for phased deployment of the operating system.
Stratvert has focused on Windows 11 in several of his recent videos:
In the second segment, we discuss some highlights from this week’s Microsoft Surface event, including the Surface Laptop Studio and the new Surface Duo 2.
In the final segment, we talk about Stratvert’s own journey from Microsoft program manager to full-time YouTube creator, which was documented in this CNBC article.
