Rumor mill: Windows 12 is all but confirmed at this point, with several hints about what we can expect from the next major Microsoft release. One possibility is a faster update cadence than Windows 11. A more modular OS with components that will live on several different partitions is also rumored. New capabilities could also make the operating system easier to manage on lower-end devices, while offering users the full spectrum of app compatibility with seamless updates.
Wine is an compatibility layer for running Windows apps on Linux. This latest release brings an extensive changelog: completion of PE conversion, Direct3D optimizations, WoW64 implementation, support for Sony DualShock and DualSense controllers, and more.

In brief: The market of "modified" Windows versions has been around for a while. AtlasOS strives to be the "best" version of Windows 10 for gamers - or for hardware platforms which are a bit out of date to properly run a modern OS.
Facepalm: If there's one thing Windows 11 could use, it's ads appearing in the operating system---said no one other than Microsoft. The Redmond firm appears to be testing a feature in preview builds that shows ads for its services in the flyout menu, where users can sign out or lock the system.
