Windows 11
#81
Mine won't be running it. I'm happy with Windows 10 anyway so not fussed, and probably won't upgrade this laptop (it's a re-furb and had since 2018) for another 4-5 years as I upgraded the memory and HDD disk.

Another thing I noticed: I ran the (updated) PC Health Check app on Dad’s laptop, just to see if that could be upgraded. Although it meets all the requirements, it still failed because the processor wasn’t on the list of supported types (see previous pages).

That could be bullshit, though. If your device meets all the criteria, then why does it matter which make, or model it is?? I’d guess you’d be allowed to download and install the product, at least.

There's a registry hack going round that you can use to ignore the required processor and install it anyway. MS have said that this might possibly affect future updates though.

Add to that - every Windows version upgrade has always caused numerous unforeseen issues with drivers etc.

No interest in even trying at present.
10s good enough for me.

It’s funny you should mention that. The issues seem to be the same with macOS too. Even to running patches and security updates for older versions.

You wouldn’t pay good money for a half-arsed car released before it’s been fully road-tested and fixed (or near enough to be usable). So why do we do the opposite with software??

That's just plain wrong, limiting consumer choice. Unless MS believe they can identify weaknesses in unsupported processors??

But even that’s too narrow-minded. Security flaws can be spotted all the time, that’s why viruses work so well.

Cars are routinely released with known issues on them. Many issues don’t materialise until production of a new model has started and several hundred/thousand have been built. It would simply be too expensive to bring the cars back to the production line especially when the issue is minor. So it’s left until the next time the car visits a workshop for the repair to be carried out (safety related issues would be fixed immediately prior to delivery).

So I guess it’s a similar thing - the software has a flaw that wasn’t initially apparent and its too expensive to halt release to rectify it if the issue isn’t important.

Both of these examples show that products are not perfect upon release - and expecting them to be so is unrealistic. So as Hugh said, best to wait until quality has improved.

Unless I'm missing something I don't see any 'killer reason' to upgrade.

When they launched 10, 7 was well past its prime and 8 was shit.

There's nothing wrong with 10. All I can see people gushing over in the reviews I've seen are 'ooo rounded corners' and 'it looks a bit Appley'

Sounds to me like this is a good time to have Windows 10 with most(?) of the issues fixed by now with still more updates/fixes coming in the next few years. Big Grin

The processor on my desktop and the processor on my laptop (a new-ish Microsoft Surface) are both incompatible.

Cheers Bill.
