[AccessD] Windows 11

Have a read through the articles and how-to's in the links I posted
Basically, they detail ways to get win-11 to install on very old systems -
including (reportedly) a Pentium system, and a USB-attached OS partition, maybe
even a booting USB OS drive.
I don't know if win-11 systems will allow 'legacy' hardware in the same way as
the earlier install processes which (AFAIK) torn off the secure boot and use the
BIOS type boot and OS startup processes if you have USB or MBR or DVD - maybe
even floppy booting devices.
Seems that you can run win-11 on hardware that doesn't match the 'Requirements'
as the 'Requirements' detail what is needed to support all the features -
(security etc) that are in win-11 and MS considers needed for a secure system.
If the system doesn't have the added abilities in the hardware - you just don't
get the associated features working.
Not to say you get them working anyway -
Note those needing the Pro version
Note the requirements for some of the MS facilities - VM, Sandbox, maybe 6core
CPU and 16GB RAM !
I would definitely recommend either a separate system from your 'production
work' one, or a separate partition for the win-11
And treat it as a proving environment - maybe experimental too!
And get the weekly posts of 'insecurity' advisories from US-CERT.

Depending on how old your PC is, Win 11 might not be available. My laptop
is a bit over 2 years old and meets all the requirements--except its CPU is
not on the approved list. So I'm stuck with Windows 10, like it or not.
Most of the features are available in the latest versions of 10 anyhow if
you know how to find them.
