Microsoft has announced the release of a new version of the Windows 11 operating system for students to use. In Tuesday’s announcement, it was referred to as ‘Windows 11 SE’. Computer makers like Dell or HP will soon launch new operating system (OS) computers, and Microsoft has announced a new laptop computer. The ‘Surface Laptop SE’ model laptop will already have Windows 11 SE installed. The laptop starts at ২৪ 249 and is expected to hit the market in early 2022.
According to a CNBC report, analysts believe that such an initiative by Microsoft is to strengthen its position in the operating system market. According to market research firm Gartner, 63 percent of personal computers launched in 2020 had Windows operating system, and 10 percent of Google Chrome OS-powered computers. Although Google is lagging behind, its growing market share has made Microsoft think, and that’s why they’re focusing on relatively low-cost laptops.
The demand for laptops for students to conduct online classes from home during coronation has increased. Students also started leaning toward Chromebooks due to their low prices. Corona’s situation is starting to get normal but online classes are not stopping now. That’s why Microsoft announced the version of Windows for students to use easily and with their words in mind.
Microsoft is keeping the new Windows options low for easy use. There will be only one such genre app. Apps will usually be launched in fullscreen mode to avoid distractions.
Software in the Microsoft Office suite is now commonly used over the Internet. However, not all students have a good internet connection at home. This software can be run offline in Windows 11 SE. When connected to the Internet, Windows will update them. In addition, for security reasons, only IT admins of educational institutions can download and install software on computers running Windows 11 SE.
Microsoft also plans to install Windows 11 SE on computers purchased for school students. And that’s why most of the devices running Windows 11 SE will start coming to the market early next year. Schools usually set budgets for new purchases at that time.
