As ZDNet points out, the page is actually titled “get a Windows 11 Enterprise virtual machine.” It turns out that this page isn’t about getting a Windows 10 development environment. Microsoft might update this website to more accurately reflect the information on it in the future.
Without the need to run Windows on a system, developers can use a virtual machine (VM) to work with the Windows 11 Enterprise operating system. This way, they will be able to work from any device – even Linux or macOS. Choosing between VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, and Parallels has never been easier for developers. Not only do more people have access to it than ever before, but they have a variety of options to choose from.
