The new version of Windows, Microsoft's operating system, will be presented on June 24th.
As an approach to the event that will be held at 5pm Italian time (11am on the Atlantic coast of North America), the company has published a video on YouTube that brings together all the startup sounds of the platform, since the first Windows 95. The mix, however, was slowed down by 4,000%, to recreate an 'ambient' effect on a track just 11 minutes long, like the number that will distinguish the next iteration of the system: Windows 11.
"Are you having trouble relaxing because you're too excited for Microsoft's June 24 event?" asks for the YouTube caption. "Take a slow journey through memory with the startup sounds of Windows 95, XP and 7, slow down to a meditative speed of 4,000 percent." As previously explained by Satya Nadella, CEO of the group, this version of Windows promises to be the most radical in a decade. Waiting for a review of the user interface, both in terms of icons and design of the Start menu, where real custom widgets can be inserted. In addition to this, the opening of the Windows Store for all the main third-party apps, currently excluded from the digital store and downloadable externally.
The latter move should bring greater security to the user and a lower risk of malicious code and viruses. Microsoft refers to the next Windows as "Sun Valley", which it has been working on for at least a couple of years. At the launch of Windows 10, in 2015, the company had announced its intention to no longer continue in the classic nomenclature, referring to its OS only with the names of periodic updates (October Update, May Update, etc.). Now a change of strategy and a return to the past seems to be taking place.
