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

Previously, Microsoft had adjusted the application store shelf standards, the new standards allow developers to upload software for almost all platforms, instead of being limited to the UWP platform, and no drawback, which makes the Microsoft Store attract a large number of developers.

In addition, in the article, Panos Panay mentioned that in the next, Microsoft will continue to adjust the Windows 11 system so as to meet the changing needs of users, and said that it will take games, creativity and exploration as the core of the system development.

It is reported that the current Windows 11 rollout is already in its final stages, and it is expected that Windows 11 will enter its final availability early in mid-2022, when Microsoft is likely to tighten the conditions for upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11.
