No, Brian keeps telling everybody that for most of it's development cycle, it was intended as being released as Windows 10, Version 21H2, which is an incontrovertible fact.  The rebranding to Windows 11 occurred long, long after the Windows Insiders had their hands on the early versions of what was, at that time, intended as Version 21H2.

The core of Windows 11 shares massive amounts of DNA with the latest version of Windows 10, with some additions.  It is not a tectonic shift.

I'd actually call them very close cousins, not distant ones.  The levels of remove will begin really in earnest after the initial release of Windows 11, when certain aspects of Windows 10 and Windows 11 will begin true and significant divergence.  Even then, I expect a lot of backporting of certain Windows 11 features into Windows 10.  They'll never be quite as separate as all of the versions up through Windows 10 were from each other.

It is the function of creative men to perceive the relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expression that may seem utterly different, and to be able to combine them into some new forms--the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.
