Microsoft taking a big swing at Apple, saying apps can use their own commerce engine and developers can keep 100% of the revenue on the Microsoft App Store.— Sami Fathi (@SamiFathi_) June 24, 2021
Microsoft, can you not impose a TPM requirement during a silicon shortage?— Shen Ye (@shen) June 25, 2021
Especially considering most desktop motherboards support TPM only as a purchasable accessory.
Today, we celebrate a major milestone with our partners at @Microsoft – the launch of #Windows11. Coupled with 11th Gen @intel Core, we've created a winning combination enabling people to focus, create and connect in ways that matter most to them. https://t.co/UswmksKmq7 pic.twitter.com/hxLsOXIhdO— Gregory M Bryant (@gregorymbryant) June 24, 2021
If you're keeping score at home, Apple is has declared war against Google and Facebook over as tracking, Microsoft is upset with Apple over payment processing, and Amazon is pissed enough about walled gardens that they're partnering with Microsoft. https://t.co/OSZqiPoH84— Will Smith (@willsmith) June 24, 2021
So even on the new Microsoft store, games are still taxed 12%.— Damien Petrilli (@DamienPetrilli) June 25, 2021
It's far less than Apple but shows who's the cash cow of any App Stores: games.
EPIC was right and the judge conclusion of "games sponsoring everybody else in the App Store" was spot on.https://t.co/DDvU7ZEtMN
I flipped the switch in my BIOS to enable TPM and the Windows 11 upgrade checker says my PC is now compatible. Check your BIOS for the setting, as practically every modern CPU has TPM support. Look for Intel PTT or AMD PSP fTPM in the BIOS https://t.co/bKo1UfTvk5 pic.twitter.com/xdu8s9ojS1— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) June 24, 2021
Another thought: Had many of the features coming to macOS Monterey just been announced on their own in a dedicated section, it would have felt big too.— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) June 24, 2021
But the vibe was “Oh it’s also getting all this stuff we made for the iPhone and iPad,” so it didn’t land.
While many have pointed out that the Amazon Android app store is not the best, Microsoft's goal here is not to ONLY have Amazon.— Daniel Rubino (@Daniel_Rubino) June 24, 2021
Samsung? Google? It could all happen too.
Let's recap:— David Rousset (@davrous) June 25, 2021
- As a web dev, you can build PWAs & package them in the Microsoft Store using @pwabuilder v3: https://t.co/l27PV6Emjq
- You can target Win10 & #Windows11 & starting July 28, use your own commerce platform with no fee! https://t.co/fMwPodZLHb
How cool is that? 😎
"Teams is integrated directly into the taskbar, allowing Windows 11 users to call friends, family, or co-workers. There’s even a universal mute button in the system tray so you can easily mute your microphone across all apps."— Dan Masters – OhMDee.com (@OhMDee) June 24, 2021
I'm satisfied! https://t.co/XXpG59o4C8
Today, we celebrate a major milestone with our partners at @Microsoft – the launch of Windows 11. Together, we’re ushering in a new, advanced computing experience enabling people to focus, create and connect in ways that matter most to them. https://t.co/2XTroQibNY— Pat Gelsinger (@PGelsinger) June 24, 2021
Lots of people asking - the documented hardware requirements for Windows 11 are here: https://t.co/kpNw7pG9Ze— Nick Craver (@Nick_Craver) June 24, 2021
Note: it looks like Intel 8th+ gen (https://t.co/w8GdecKtWw) and AMD Ryzen 3+ (https://t.co/rugcIvjJ40) are going to be supported. That's only going back ~4 years.
Enemy of an enemy is my friend. And if they help kick in some dollars, they are the best friend. To be clear 2021 version of @microsoft is no different than 2001 version of Microsoft or any other version of Microsoft. Just have more controlled outwards expression of arrogance. https://t.co/o1M1zk6prn— OM (@om) June 25, 2021
Satya’s closing Windows 11 remarks were a direct shot on Apple— THE RED DRAGON (@TWTHEREDDRAGON) June 24, 2021
I like that Microsoft is pushing for more openness and inviting competitors to their system. It’s much better then the Microsoft that tried & failed to create a successful closed system https://t.co/8olwIX6qJW
Not surprising re Teams, but as I wrote recently Teams is the core product in their new "collaborative apps" strategy (where the web is the engine). Will have to dig into this news more... the word "integration" has heavy connotations with MS, of course. https://t.co/ofEojrkuqB https://t.co/SzRpam29Gg— Richard MacManus (@ricmac) June 24, 2021
Windows 11 system requirements...— Vincent Milum Jr (@DarkainMX) June 24, 2021
* No more 32-bit support.
* REQURIES DX12 GPU !?!?
* REQUIRES UEFI w/ Secure Boot !?!?
* REQUIRES Microsoft Account !?!?
* REQUIRES >9" display ("works on any devices") !?!?
* REQUIRES TPM hardware
TONS of systems wont be compatible. pic.twitter.com/EBwaixjidv
Nadella going hard at how open Windows is to end this thing -- "there is no personal computing without personal agency." Hitting the controversies about app stores and control hard!— nilay patel (@reckless) June 24, 2021
The move of the start button to the center is deeper than just some cosmetic change.— Joanna Stern (@JoannaStern) June 24, 2021
I sat down with the king of Microsoft himself, @satyanadella, to hear all about Windows 11 and how he wants to bring Windows back to the center of your digital life. https://t.co/fHEEumUOyF pic.twitter.com/ErUKUhyS71
Almost every CPU in the last 5-7 years has a TPM. For Intel its called the "Intel PTT" which you set to enabled. For AMD it would be "AMD PSP fTPM". TPMs have been required for OEM certification since at least 2015 and was announced in 2013: https://t.co/1qwfwKSrdd— DWIZZZLE (@dwizzzleMSFT) June 24, 2021
Windows 11 looks good *IF* Microsoft has more consistent design once you navigate away from the first layer of the updated desktop/Start environment. Search looks less useless and that’s nice. Good job, Bill Gate.— Quinn Nelson (@SnazzyQ) June 24, 2021
Speaking of Windows 11 upgrades ...— Daniel Rubino (@Daniel_Rubino) June 25, 2021
There is a LOT of confusion. Hard/soft floors, CPUs older than 8th Gen, TPM 1.2 and 2.0 ...
I think a lot of these are "soft" blocks and that doesn't mean you can put Windows 11 on your PC.
