Microsoft Windows 11 preview is now officially available to download for testing for Windows Insider members ahead of its public launch sometime in the fall of this year.
Microsoft's goal was to launch its cloud gaming service, xCloud (or Xbox Cloud Gaming), directly on the App Store. But Apple isn't keen on that idea (even after making some changes to seem like it is).

Once upon a time, Microsoft had a plan to keep Windows 10 as the version of its desktop operating system.

Microsoft has scheduled a new Windows-themed press event for June 24 at 11am ET, promising to show “what’s next for Windows.” Could this be a major unveiling of Windows 11?
Dolby Vision offers a richer viewing experience, but support from both the content and the hardware showing it off is needed to enjoy it. And for folks who use the Apple TV app on their Xbox, that support is coming.
Right to Repair can be a heated topic for some. It's certainly an important one, and Apple can't deny that -- especially with just how hard it tries to stop it from becoming a thing in the United States.
Apple and Microsoft have been around long enough that they know what a rivalry looks like. They also understand, just like Intel, what "competitive fun" looks like, too. But it looks like the rivalry between Apple and Microsoft is ramping up again.
