With Windows 11, Microsoft tried to give its operating system a more modern look, with rounded corners and a centered taskbar. Unfortunately, the operating system still lacks some of the features promised from the start, like native Android app support, although they are coming.
If you don’t want to use Windows 11 or Windows 10 for that matter, your alternative choices tend to be limited to macOS (if you have an Apple computer), Google OS (if that’s your thing), or one of many Linux distributions. What if there was another way? AvdanOS is everything you could want, and more.

The creator of the serial concept Kamer Kaan Avdan has already given us updated versions of Windows 95, Windows XP, Windows 7, as well as the Apple version of Windows 10 and Windows 20. He even delivered his vision of Windows 11 well before Windows 11 was even a thing (spoiler alert: it’s nothing like Microsoft’s new OS, but it’s arguably better).
Today, he’s putting all of his considerable design skills, and everything he’s learned to date, into creating a video showcasing his very own operating system — AvdanOS. This, like his many other concepts, doesn’t exist – you can’t download or install it – which is a real shame, because it looks amazing.
Its concept is really unlike anything else, although it obviously borrows elements from other operating systems like Windows 11, macOS, iOS/iPadOS and Android.
There’s a “taskbar” centered at the bottom of the screen, with open apps on the left, and key features include top-level drag-and-drop, new ways to manage files and folders, and the seriously advanced multitasking.
Changing OS theme has been made very simple and looks great. The new Settings screen is also beautiful and practical.
I like what he did here, and how he didn’t just regurgitate past ideas. I just wish it was something I could change today. Watch the video below and let me know what you think in the comments.
If you want an idea of the work involved in creating a concept like this, Avdan has published a time lapse that gives an overview of the creation of AvdanOS, which you can see here.
