[dba-Tech] Windows 11

Windows 11 has some odd requirements in regards to CPUs. I have Win10 machines with i7 that don't meet the upgrade requirements. So then you have to do a work around. No reason to work too hard to get it. No compelling reason. Windows 10 will be supported for a while yet.

Do you mean the laptops are too old to support 11?

We've been buying laptops with it on, and downgrading to 10 21H2 because then everything is on the same OS. Two thirds of our laptops won't support 11, so we're not interested in moving to 11 until I can push it out by a feature enablement package to everyone. And I'm hoping that 12 comes out before 10 is out of support.


It has been stable for a couple of months. They've just added some new features. I'd wait until after the first update. That'll probably be October. Other than the new features there's really no point unless you like to be frustrated by everything a person typically does taking more clicks to get to <shaking head>. I have no businesses using it yet. The clients I do have bought new devices with it preinstalled and they don't notice anything because they're pretty basic users.

I'm still using and writing on Windows 10. I'm wondering if I should upgrade? I've put it off for a while now, but 11 seems to have leveled off and become stable at this point - opinions? 


Thanks all!
