The preview version of Windows 11 still contains elements of Windows 3.1 from 29 years ago

Microsoft will announce the new content about win11 to you at 11 a.m. on June 24 in the eastern United States. Before that, Microsoft seems to have leaked its unpublished preview image of win11 to the Internet due to negligence. After more than one day's test experience, I believe you have found many improvements in win11, and you can also see some of the unchanged UI in the preview version of win11. Today, Sam Henri gold found a classic interface in win11 preview, which has appeared since Windows 3.1 in 1992, and Microsoft has retained it in win11 preview. For the sake of windows compatibility, Microsoft has not eliminated the content in the previous system, but piled more and more.

The construction of the Pearl River Estuary Tunnel, a key control project of the Shenzhen-Jiangmen Railway, is progressing smoothly, and the shield tunneling machine will start operation in November. Shenjiang Railway runs through five cities including Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan and Jiangmen, with a total length of 116 kilometers and a design speed of 250 kilometers per hour.

Cortana: no win11

Cortana, Microsoft's AI voice assistant, claims the system doesn't exist, though not many people believe it. "Is Windows 11 real?" he asks Cortana. "According to Microsoft.com, there will be no Windows 11," Cortana replied in all seriousness. "Windows 10 will be updated as an update-as-a-service, with updates every six month major iteration." Ironically, the computer in the video is running a preview version of Windows 11 that leaked online recently. Microsoft, which has yet to formally announce Windows 11, will unveil its new operating system at an event on June 24. Cortana's answer is hardly convincing, given what's been revealed so far. Generally speaking, the voice assistant doesn't reveal anything about the company that hasn't been disclosed yet, and it's possible that Windows 11 will exist.
