Microsoft's latest Windows 11 has been making a huge noise in the industry since the tech giant company claimed that it will offer better features compared to Windows 10 version.

After Windows 10 was released, many users already complained about bugs that greatly affect their PC or laptop's performance. These include issues about the internet, lagging, and other annoying system problems.

Although Microsoft said that Windows 11 could be better, it is still too early to conclude that the new software will not have some system issues.

If you are one of the interested people, you can install the new Microsoft Windows 11. However, your device should be running the older Windows 10 before you can download it.

On the other hand, the company also announced that newer CPU models are also required.

Windows 11 Vs. Windows 10

Android App Integration

According to CNET's latest report, one of the most major updates of Windows 11 is Microsoft's Android app integration feature. This means that Android applications will also be accessible in the new system. Meanwhile, Windows 10 doesn't have this capability.

Virtual Desktop Support

On the other hand, Microsoft's Windows 11 is also claimed to offer better desktop support compared to Windows 10. The new system's virtual desktop feature is also comparable to the one offered by MacBooks.
