Last month, Microsoft finally unveiled the much-anticipated Windows 11 update. The new update comes with an updated UI, performance, and productivity improvements. Microsoft has also released the minimum system requirements for Windows 11 which includes Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 among other things, but the latter can be bypassed for now.
One of the key highlights of Windows 11 is the new rounded UI that is pleasing to the eye. Along with the new UI, Microsoft is also embracing the dark side with an improved system-wide dark mode. Unfortunately, the company has again skipped Task Manager for some reasons as the app still lacks support for dark mode.
However, Twitter user Jakub has given us a look at what Task Manger could look like if Microsoft ever decides to add support for dark mode. The concept shows off Task Manager wrapped in dark background that blends in well with the wallpaper and compliments the text, which uses the new Segoe UI Variable Display font. The usage charts, on the other hand, may look familiar to anyone who has played around with Linux distros.
Overall, the design looks elegant as well as gives users the ability to switch to dark mode on Task Manager. We do hope that Microsoft adopts the design or a variation of the design for Windows 11.

Apart from the general requirements, Microsoft has also listed out specific feature requirements for Windows 11 including webcams, Bluetooth and Precision Touchpad on all upcoming laptops. Last month, Microsoft also updated the PC Health Check app to show why a device is not ineligible to receive the Windows 11 update. However, the company will allow some manufacturers to bypass the TPM 2.0 requirement and it is also allowing Windows Insiders with unsupported hardware to test Windows 11 Insider Builds. Several manufacturers have published a list of hardware that will be compatible with Windows 11.
