Microsoft will turn Windows 11 into the new Vista. A legendary feature from 16 years ago is revived

Windows 11 will feature "gadgets" from 16-year-old Windows Vista. These are widgets for the desktop, allowing you to quickly find out the weather forecast, sports results, to be aware of traffic jams and news, etc. Widgets are very popular in today's world - they have been in Android since about 2010, and even Apple integrated them into its iOS in 2020.

Operating system Windows 11, released in October 2021, will soon receive a feature that Windows-computer users first saw on their screens in 2007, according to the profile portal Windows Latest, Microsoft will build into its OS so-called "gadgets" - mini applications that can be attached to the start screen for quick access to certain functions or information.

Why this is needed

The concept of "gadgets" in Windows Vista was to expand the functionality of the desktop - from a dump of files on top of a beautiful image, it turned into a powerful tool. For example, "gadgets" could promptly inform the user about traffic jams or new air tickets to a particular country, they allowed to control the media player, quickly respond in messengers and much more.

In other words, "gadgets" allowed to manage numerous services and programs directly from the desktop without the need to switch between windows and web pages.

On all fumes.
According to Windows Latest, there was no exact date for the revival of "gadgets" at the time of this story, but Microsoft is very active in this area. It is possible that the "innovation" will appear in one of the upcoming updates for Windows 11 - a small or, conversely, cumulative, which Microsoft releases once every six months. Microsoft is currently working closely with third-party software developers to ensure that they do not overlook this new feature of the operating system.
On June 6, 2024, the professional IT community Global CIO held an annual meeting with IT leaders from Uzbekistan. The event named “CIO of Uzbekistan as part of Global IT community” took place at the International Hotel in Tashkent. The meeting was aimed to exchange best practices, experiences and get together IT leaders from Central Asia.

The Global CIO professional IT community has conducted its annual survey of IT executives and would like to thank all the community members who helped realise this work. This survey explores the key challenges that CIOs face from their companies, as well as the CIO's personal view of their areas of responsibility. The survey included 100 respondents heading IT departments in companies.

The events of the past two years have shown how important it is not only to have a long-term strategy, but also to be able to quickly 'reformat' it to new circumstances. The metaphor of the whale and the Strategy methodology were created specifically for this process.
