After weeks of leaks and hype, tech giant Microsoft has officially announced the next version of its desktop operating system (OS) -- Windows 11.

The new OS will be a free upgrade for Windows 10 users and will start rolling out "this holiday".

"We have simplified the design and user experience to empower your productivity and inspire your creativity. It's modern, fresh, clean and beautiful," Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer, Windows + Devices, said in a statement.

"From the new Start button and taskbar to each sound, font and icon, everything was done intentionally to put you in control and bring a sense of calm and ease," Panay added.

"Not only will we bring you more apps than ever before, but we're also making all content -- apps, games, shows, movies -- easier to search for and discover with curated stories and collections," the company said.

The news has gone viral on Twitter as people across the globe are hyped and excited to see the new features. While many are guessing what Windows 11 will look like, others have taken the opportunity and made memes.
