Windows 11 build leaked, Windows 10 support ending in 2025

There’s been some rumors about Windows 11 – codename Sun Valley – in the last couple of weeks, but now I suppose that’s official as a leaked build of Windows 11 has made the rounds in the press, and Microsoft also announced Windows 10 support will be ending in October 2025 both for the Home and Pro version of the operating systems, as well as Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.

Websites that tested the Windows 11 leaked build, including XDA Developers and NotebookCheck, report it’s very much like Windows 10, but with the scrapped Windows 10X shell. Since Microsoft is scheduled to announced Windows 11 on June 24, the user interface and experience should be pretty close to the actual release.

The most obvious visual change compared to Windows 10 is that the taskbar is now centered. Other cosmetic changes include Windows and menus with rounded corners, a new Windows logo,  Windows Search and File Manager user interfaces have been revamped with a different design, more colorful icons, and there’s now a dark mode.

So Window 11 is not a revolution, and it will feel similar to Windows 10 users. Maybe more features will be discovered as people play around with the leak. You can check the walk-through from XDA Developers in the video below.

If you’d like to try it out yourself, Windows 11 can be found online in various locations. The description and comments section of that video on YouTube has several Google Drive links that will probably be taken away soon.
