This is obviously a minor controversy, but it perfectly illustrates Microsoft's desire for change.

The release of a new operating system necessarily implies a transition period during which the old and the new must cohabit. This is what Microsoft is currently experiencing with the launch - on October 5th - of Windows 11. For several more months and probably even years, Microsoft will be forced to keep both OSes alive: Windows 11 will certainly gradually take over from Windows 10, but the latter should be present on many machines at least until 2025, when the Redmond-based company should stop all support.

Until then, Microsoft is committed to evolving Windows 11 on the one hand, while still supporting Windows 10 on the other. A recent micro-event has just proved the limits of this "support". Thus, the release of new emojis for Windows 11 - you know those little faces that we use to signify an emotion or bring a humorous light to an intervention - will not concern Windows 10, which will remain with these "old" emojis. Of course, Windows 10 users will easily get over it, but while the deployment of these emojis would probably not have cost Microsoft much, it shows how much the publisher wants to distinguish its two OSes.

While we're on the subject of controversy, it's funny how something as anecdotal as emojis can get people talking. For example, during the summer, Microsoft presented "3D" emojis that it was preparing for Windows 11. However, a few days ago - with the deployment of the KB5007262 update integrating the new Windows 11 emojis - there is no question of finding any 3D. Microsoft has certainly redesigned the emojis, but it reserves the 3D models for certain applications like Skype or Teams. So there is no question of completely standardizing emojis across the entire operating system and, besides, other applications (Messenger, Twitter...) will still be able to use their own version of emojis.
