Windows 11 – First Impressions

Microsoft released the first Windows 11 Preview, build 22000.51 for members of the Windows Insider Program. I’ve created a Virtual Machine with 2 Processors, 2 core processors and had a quick look at the UI and whether the Liquit agent runs properly on this build.

First I downloaded the ‘Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_21354..iso’ ISO from the Windows Insider Preview Downloads page, because there’s no Windows 11 ISO for download (yet):

Application Delivery is working as expected:

Both for installing applications and launching applications from within Liquit Workspace:

as well as pinning applications to the Desktop and Start Menu:

We will release a fix in 3.6 and up soon, in order for ‘Platform’ to report ‘Windows 11’:

Just keep an eye on the Release Notes.

A couple of nice things I’ve seen already is the new ‘Task View’:

and the new options for setting your Display Settings:

Here’s a nice article how to Switch back to the classic Windows 10 Start menu.
