And then the explosion of new Windows 11 threads will start.
If you are upgrading from Windows 10, we recommend that you wait until you are notified through Windows Update that the upgrade is ready for your PC.
Microsoft is releasing a brand-new version of Windows that isn't even supported on computers more than 3 or 4 years old. "Windows Everywhere" was ambitious, but the dream is dead. Microsoft has shifted its focus to providing solid versions of its apps on iOS and Android, and even Microsoft's modern-day phones run a Microsoft-flavored version of Android rather than anything Windows-related. The new version of Windows is more preoccupied with the places where Windows already is and is likely to stay—risk-averse, money-rich, security-conscious businesses.
At the airline where I used to work, we were always at least two and very often three versions/updates behind the cutting edge. We had very specific custom software that had to be tested, certified by the FAA, etc so updating when the latest version came out was a VERY long process.I've had several of our users ask me already today when they're going to get Win 11. They weren't too pleased when I told them, "Not anytime soon," but that's just too bad. We have multiple systems we support, and none of them have been tested to ensure they work properly in Win 11. Moreover, we likely have quite a few workstations out there that won't be supported, so they can wait until our next hardware update cycle.
