    Windows 11 leaks: ISO image, videos, screenshots, sounds

    The look of the UI is very similar to what we saw with the ill-fated Windows 10X.

    We lost rounded edges and Aero Glass UI with Windows 8 (from 7 and Vista) and it's back in Windows 11...yay.

    Although I have gotten used to the sharp blocky corners of the Windows 10 UI, it'll take some getting used to

    Rounded edges will date quickly. Look naff. I'd say they will be gone by 2027 with an GUI overhaul (again)

    You can move the start button and icons back to the left from the screenshot it seems

    Speaking of which, from a distance that blue Windows logo bears a similarity to the old MacOS logo.

    And if you read the review it also states "There is an option to move the menus and icons back to the left, if you wish."

    Re: Windows 11 leaks: ISO image, videos, screenshots, sounds

    Only had time for a quick glance - doesn't look too radical a departure from the Windows 10 UI - let's hope there's some good stuff under the bonnet to make the upgrade worthwhile.

    If it's a paid-for OS, hopefully there'll be increased respect for users - e.g. not being blasted with advertising at every opportunity (one of the most alarming aspects of using the Windows 10 Home Edition in particular).

    If advertising is to be a thing - shouldn't it be limited to a free of charge tier of Windows 11 - where the advertising is positioned as a trade-off for those that don't want to pay for Windows?

    On the flip side of this - with Mac OS and Linux continually gaining ground, can Microsoft even justify charging for Windows any more? Or could they even experiment with a GamePass-style model, where your subscription covers differing tiers of access to Windows/Office/Azure/etc?

    It's the rental prospect thing. If this is a subscription model that's not good
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    I wonder how the taskbar will fill up when you open multiple apps with the centred Start button as associated icons - I can only imagine it will look really messy and cluttered.

    I hope they aren't forcing "combine taskbar buttons" on you - that's one of the first things I disable on W10.

    apart from moving some stuff about and changing some looks, what's the point?

    I thought this myself, looks grim doesn't it, at least theres a wee bit more colour now tho with new icons (still no aero option tho).
    I've got this downloading atm and will try it in a VM soon.

    Hah, the way they were talking about Windows 10 being the "last version of Windows", and making Windows as a service didn't last long then.

    It probably got leaked on purpose to test the waters and see what people think of it. If its a subscription model though then there will be outrage.
