Windows 11 is once again being teased by Microsoft. Microsoft has just published a new YouTube video with an 11-minute (ahem) collection of startup sounds from different Windows versions. As a result, they have been slowed down by 4000 percent, and Microsoft intends this to be a relaxing video for anyone who has become overexcited by the upcoming Windows event on June 24th.
“Are you having trouble relaxing because you’re excited for Microsoft’s event on the 24th?”, asks YouTube’s caption. 4,000 percent slower startup sounds from Windows 95, XP, and 7 will bring you back in time.
Windows 11 or whatever name its next version is going to have, I believe this is very much a teasing of a new startup sound. “A new version of Windows” has been teased by Microsoft recently, and some of those hints suggest Windows 11 could in fact be the name.
In addition to the hints, there is a window on the event invite that creates a shadow with a shape that appears to be the number 11, and the event starts at 11AM ET.
In the past few months, Microsoft executives have been teasing an upcoming announcement about the “next generation of Windows.” From this latest video, it appears that they will continue to do so.
Several user interface changes are expected with Microsoft’s upcoming release of Windows 8. There are many changes to come, including some significant Windows Store ones, so read our past coverage for details on what to expect from “Sun Valley,” which Microsoft codes as “sweeping visual revitalization of Windows.”
