    Question Windows 11 ?

    My newest build which is about 8 months old has no problem meeting the Win 11 requirements, but my wife uses an old Del Inspiron 660 that's failing the CPU, TPM and a couple of other requirements. The Dell is primarily used by my wife and doesn't get that much exercise, just surfing the internet and email.. How long will Win 10 remain viable before they expect to phase it out? I know it's probably years away but I was just wondering.

    The Windows 10 "retirement" date is in Oct 2025, Microsoft will be actively issuing updates until then, so you have plenty of time.

    You don't know what you're missing. I have never regretted the upgrade to version 10. Come to think about it, I can't remember having any kind of glitch or lockup since using Win 10. I'll be upgrading to 11 as soon as they make it available to me.

    Just a couple of registry edits to get past the things like...."no TPM". You should be able to get any computer (within reason) to have Win11 start installing.

    I'd be interested to know if the "edits" cover multiple problems. My wife's computer is also getting the error that the CPU doesn't comply and I can't remember the other ones.

    Why is this rollout taking so long? I was reading that it's going to continue into 2022, why not just make it available and get it over with? I know I can get the ISO, but I was just wondering why they're dragging their feet on releasing this version?

    Where are you seeing it not work?
    Every "new" computer we unbox, setup on the bench, and prepare for a customer...is prompting to upgrade to 11 when we run Microsoft updates before bringing it to the customer.

    Windows Update. When I run it I'm told...

    "Great news—your PC meets the minimum system requirements for Windows*11. Specific timing for when it will be offered can vary as we get it ready for you."

    I know I can probably do the ISO route but I was hoping to do the upgrade online.

    Eh much like Windows 10 upgrades from Win7...just go to the Windows 11 Media Creation Tool.
