    Not all update for that reason. Some update just to have something fairly new. New design and such. Like the people that buy new phones every couple of years like me...

    I will wait when Alder Lake releases November and then amd cpus release in 2022, with the new PCI 5.0 and DDR5 and what not. Then i can finally upgrade my pc and prob i will install windows 11. I don't see why not tbh.

    Yes, this sounds like a nice plan :) Plus, Alder Lake sounds like a good generation all-around from what's been published about it so far.

    At this point, if I was running 11 on unsupported hardware, I would feel like I was on borrowed time. Would rather not deal with any potential hassles.

    Same

    Also, Alder Lake might be good but u have to wait and see. Currently amd gets destroyed by intel because of the pricing. Nothing beats the i5-10400f for that price, for example. Also intel motherboards are also much cheaper. So it doesn't matter if it's better when it costs 2X as much for let's say 20-30% faster. It's just not worth it. That said amd has been beating intel at multicore for quite some time now, and seeing that Alder Lake has the same multicore performance as the current 5K ryzen series, looks like amd will beat them again at multicore. But 20% better single-threaded performance is A LOT. So let's see what amd can do. And at what prices. Because right now amd cpus and motherboards are just overpriced.

    Just successfully installed W11 on my Dell XPS8930 and so far so good! Had to convert the OS SSD to GPT from MBR, change BIOS from Legacy boot to UEFI, activate Secure Boot which required first disabling Legacy Option ROM, and finally activated TPM2.0. All of the programs I had pinned to my taskbar remained along with the new W11 icons. Received a notification that the installed version of StartIsBack is not compatible with W11 (there's a new version available.) Chrome is running like nothing's changed, all logins remained active. MS Office 2019 ProPlus is running fine including Office accessing all of my saved mail, contacts, and calendar. Printing to a Samsung laser printer has been verified.

    I used Rufus Extended Install to clean install Win 11; no warnings or errors. Win 11 received updates too. All my programs installed and running well. Win 11 feels lighter than Win 10 on my laptop.

    I can't install W11 on my current laptop without workarounds, so I'll stay with W10. (If the laptop is still functioning past 2025, I'll just put Xubuntu on it.)

    Both laptops are compatible, but will wait and decide later. In no hurry.

    I have Win 11 beta on a separate 'test' partition on one laptop.

    Will wait till it gets offered via WU on my 5 Win 10 partitions across the two laptops, and decide then. Don't like the large clunky Taskbar.

    I haven't lost hope that they'll add some functionality if enough people complain. That said I'm finding that in actual use the only place I have really been affected is that it was the most likely way I would open Task Manager. Right clicking the Start Button produces a menu with the option so it is not the biggest deal. Also I seem to be the only person I know that remembers that CTRL+SHIFT+ESC opens it as well.

    I have one question about Windows 11 license.
    If I try to install it on my Windows 10 licensed machine do I have first to update Win 10 to Win 11 and then do clean install, or can I just clean install Windows 11 and it will activate with Windows 10 license stored on their servers?

    Dual booting w10 and latest Pop OS beta on my main PC. I do like Pop OS a lot. Steam games works just fine.
    Windows 11 on my old laptop.

    My intel i7m laptop is 'incompatible', only has a TPM 1.2. It installed win11 insiders, but the first few were a bit incomplete, so i'm waiting for the dust to settle. You CAN install it on an 'incompatible' machine, but MS won't support you. If win11 won't install on your pc, there is a registry fix to let it install,I reverted to my win10 macrium backup and will retry when the new version settles down a bit. Hopefully MS will rtealise they shot themselves in the foot with their stupid HW requirement.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ; How to Bypass TPM 1.2 and Install Windows 11
    ; https://www.majorgeeks.com/content/page/bypass_tpm_12.html
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup]
    "AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU"=dword:00000001
    
    Caveat emptor. May or may not work for you. There are 'no tpm' isos out there, even microsoft has one...

    Oh, should have seen that registry hack!

    Since I was curious whether my 10+ years old PC would run Windows 11 I made a Reflect image and tried to upgrade, which failed. A clean install seemed to work fine though. Since installing everything from scratch was not worth this experiment I restored my Windows 10 image.

    Maybe I should try the hack this weekend…

    No, just ran the MS Windows 11 Installation Assistant after configuring my drive and BIOS as needed to meet all of the requirements. Didn't have to reinstall any existing software and it's running flawlessly, very glad I made the upgrade!

    Unfortunately did not work for me; Windows still complains that my PC should support TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot (which it both does not).

    You shouldn't (might as well be mustn't) upgrade to W11 if you don't have TPM 2.0
