This article tells you one reason that you should upgrade to Windows 11 from older Windows 11 systems. Let’s see that the reason is.
Since Windows 11 preview and official version have been released, most people found that it is not worthy to upgrade, because nothing improves but a new face of Windows 10. After 3 months’ use of Windows 11, I have to say that Windows 11 seems that it has little differences with Windows 10, just moving the start icons from left to middle, improved right click menu, the theme changed a little. And Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 to upgrade, while Windows 10 doesn’t request.
Let’s recall the Microsoft announcement: there won’t be any more Windows system after Windows 10. And now, Microsoft break the words, and released Windows 11. Why? There must be something that can not be achieved in Windows 10 so that Microsoft has to compose a new system, Windows 11, to take the place of Windows 10. What will it be?
According to my guess, as the mobile becomes more and more important nowadays, if Windows can run Android or even IOS apps in Windows system, Microsoft can occupy more time of users in 24 hours. There is a saying that one of important quotas for mobile apps is defragmentation time of use in 24 hours. If mobile apps take more time, so the Windows takes less time. Microsoft need to take back the time of users from mobile. So when the Windows 11 is first announced, there was Android app support feature, even though this feature is not activated at present.
Unlike Android or IOS app simulators, Windows 11 run mobile apps natively. What does natively mean? The simulators run apps by simulation, which will greatly sacrifice the performance of apps, such as games. It is much slower to run mobile apps in Windows than in mobile, even though the CPU is much more powerful than ARM system. This hurts the experience of users. Because all mobile apps are designed for mobile CPUs and GPUs. The mobile CPU and GPU are quite different from desktop computer/laptop CPU and GPU.
But Windows 11 can run mobile apps natively through the technology of Bridge technology of Inter CPU. And the Bridge system can simulate the system like ARM. So even if Windows 11 can’t reach the performance of mobile for apps, it is very close to.
Try to think about it, if we can run mobile apps in Windows 11 natively, like the software or Windows apps in Windows 11, we won’t need to frequently active our mobile phone to get messages, or playing mobile games. What’s more important, the screen is much bigger than mobile screen, so you will get much better experience during using the mobile apps. And your hands won’t be hurt due to long time hold mobile.
Now that Windows 11 is free to upgrade, I highly recommend you to upgrade to Windows 11, no matter you like it or not. And there will be a day for you to run mobile apps natively.
One more guess, there will be Windows 12 when AR technology is matured. And Windows 13 comes when VR is matured. And more in future.
