Recently, Panos Panay, chief product officer of Microsoft, published a blog post "A New Era of PC", in which he stated that Win11 has been welcomed by the majority of PC users.

According to the information disclosed in the article, in 2021, PC shipments will exceed 340 million units, an increase of 27% over 2019, and the free upgrade acceptance rate of the Win11 system is twice that of Win10.

At the same time, Panos Panay also said that the update of Windows 11 has caused the traffic of the Microsoft Store to increase by two to three times, which may be the result of Microsoft's open shelf policy in 2021.

Previously, Microsoft has adjusted the application store listing standards. The new standard allows developers to upload software for almost all platforms, not limited to the UWP platform, and does not take a commission, which makes the Microsoft Store attract a large number of developers.

In addition, in the article, Panos Panay mentioned that in the next step, Microsoft will continue to adjust the Win11 system to meet the changing needs of users, and said that games, creativity and exploration will be the core of system development.

It is reported that the current promotion of Win11 has come to an end. It is expected that in mid-2022, Win11 will enter the final availability stage ahead of schedule. At that time, Microsoft may tighten the conditions for upgrading from Win10 to Win11.
