Windows 11 SE is Microsoft’s rival to Chrome OS


Has been it had been rumored for a while, but today Microsoft finally unveiled Windows 11 SE, its education-focused operating system.

Purpose-built to support the K-8 classroom, Windows 11 SE will be available on devices from Acer, ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo and others, as well as the new Surface Laptop SE (pictured above) which Microsoft claims was ” tailor-made for students “.

The operating system was created for “teachers who need a simple, distraction-free environment for their students and for school IT administrators who need devices that are secure, easy to deploy and manage, and work well all day in changing conditions of a school year “.

Features of the new operating system include:

  • Controlled app installation
  • Launch the app in full screen
  • Cloud-first storage + 1 TB
  • Better battery life

“We’ve heard from educators that they need simpler, safer options that work on more affordable devices,” says Paige Johnson, vice president of Education Marketing. “This expanded portfolio complements our existing Windows 11 learning devices, giving schools even more choices to have the tools, information and controls they need to deliver optimal learning experiences, at a price that expands access to Microsoft’s performance, security and reliability. “

Microsoft says most new Windows 11 devices will be available for order through education channels later this year and in 2022.
