Microsoft has just released the latest update for the Windows 11 operating system, codenamed 23H2. If you are a Windows 11 user, you may have already received a notification to update your system to version 23H2. This update is the largest update Microsoft has ever made for Windows 11, and it brings many exciting new features.
One of the features I like the most is Microsoft Co-pilot, an AI assistant that can execute commands to perform actions on the computer, such as turning on and connecting devices, taking screenshots, and searching for information from the internet. This feature is very useful and easy to use, simply by pressing the WIN + C button and starting a conversation with the GPT-based chatbot.
Another interesting feature is Microsoft Clipchamp, a video editing application equipped with generative AI that assists users in the video creation process, including setting clips, transitions, narration, and background music. This application is also integrated with various social media platforms, making it easy for users to share their work.
However, unfortunately, this update does not seem to be able to attract users to switch to Windows 11. Microsoft’s internal data shows that the adoption rate of Windows 11 is still low, with only 400 million active users since its launch two years ago, far below the target of 500 million by early 2024. Meanwhile, Windows 10 managed to reach the same number within one year of its release.
One of the factors affecting the adoption rate of Windows 11 is the fairly high hardware requirements, which makes many users reluctant to upgrade their systems. The hope for the future, of course, is that Microsoft can lower these hardware requirements, or provide incentives for users who want to switch to Windows 11.
