Microsoft continues its campaign to tease and tout the new operating system its been working on.

This time, in a new video uploaded to YouTube, the tech company presents an 11-minute collection featuring startup sounds from various versions of Windows.

Interestingly enough, the sounds are all slowed down by 4000 percent, and Microsoft describes this as being a relaxing video for those too excited by the Windows release event on June 24th.

This is what Microsoft says Windows 11 may sound like

This video is showcased on the official Windows YouTube channel and it keeps reminding users about Microsoft’s upcoming event on June 24, in which they will discover the next generation of Windows.

An interesting fact about this viral clip is that it’s also exactly 11 minutes long. Yet another hint towards the future of the OS, called Windows 11 by the great majority of people.

Having trouble relaxing because you’re too excited for the June 24th Microsoft Event? Take a slow trip down memory lane with the Windows 95, XP, and 7 startup sounds slowed down to a meditative 4,000% reduced speed.

It seems that Microsoft really spared no expense and is using every trick in the book to get users worldwide extra hyped for the launch of their new OS.

A great strategy, some might say, as we are only weeks away from the great unveiling ceremony.

Windows 11 or Sun Valley?

There has been endless debate on this subject and, for the moment, nobody can know for sure what the name for the new OS will actually be.

Even though the vast majority believe that the title will be Windows 11, according to a recent leak from Microsoft, the variables have changed a little bit.

From the information, which was later deleted by the company, it would appear that the future Windows operating system will not be called Windows after all, but Sun Valley.

At first, we all thought that Sun Valley would be just an update that was going to change the look of Windows 10 drastically.

Whichever name Microsoft decides to go with, the bigger question here is actually: How will this new OS look and, more important, how will it perform?

So lets all keep being enthusiastic and expect to have our minds blown in the near future.
