    Depends on the machine. We test software early to see if there are issues to report or be dealt with.We try to have at least a VM in each channel to monitor things.

    So I was getting system lockups with Edge. Now it has started happening with Firefox. Windows 11 is definitely weird.

    EDIT: I think I was able to narrow it down a bit more. It could be a display driver issue. Fortunately AMD released a driver the beginning of this month I just noticed. Updated and will keep an eye on it.

    Any idea how to install the .282 build without being on Insiders?

    If you're trying to update from a previous build, try to find the download. Probably a .cab file. Use DISM to install. If you need an ISO there probably is one, may not be official. Use at your own risk.

    Will take a look around. Not in a huge rush but sure would be nice. :)

    Yup. My Intel processor isn't even six years old, its not on the official list but it runs Windows 11 fine! If your PC meets all the other Windows 11 minimum hard floor requirements, why is the processor incompatible? We weren't given a good answer to that question.

    I found a PC at work that meets all of the requirements but the CPI. It's a 6th gen. I installed anyway and it runs better than it did with Windows 10. Agreed. I have yet to see an explanation on the CPU requirement.

    We now have two branches of Windows 11: a stable LTS channel for most users and a rolling channel for power users.

    The latter available for those who remain in the Windows Insiders Program.

    The new security technology baked in Windows 11 is being beta tested in anticipation of what's coming in Windows 12. Microsoft for now doesn't mind people by passing Windows 11 requirements. It recognizes and expects them to be on new PCs when Windows 12 finally does come out.

    Even though my current PC lacks the processor Microsoft wants, it still gets to benefit from what Windows 11 offers.

    Maybe, but a Pentium 4 is utter useless in nowadays applications irrespective of the OS, actually even in its glory days it was a very bad piece of silicon.

    The new Pluton processor will run rings around that venerable Pentium 4. Bad news? Its not due out until sometime next year.

    Agreed, the Pentium 4 sucked, I never owned one. But a 3 or 4 year old i7? I see no good reason for excluding those.

    It's not. Even if your computer haven't got a supported CPU, you can install Windows 11 and get updates. Windows 11 should run fine on any system that Windows 10 runs well on and in some cases it will be faster. It's running very well on my 9-year-old ThinkPad, aside from a bug in File Explorer, which has already been fixed in more recent builds.

    The reliability excuse doesn't work for me. 52% of some undisclosed number of something. No details. Does your ThinkPad meet any of the requirements? I'm just wondering as I am considering experimenting with something that does not have any TPM, no UEFI, no GPT, no Safeboot, 2nd gen CPU. It does meet the RAM and disk space requirements.

    This is prob. going to be encouraging to those who have been turned away before. It seems more than a few are still clinging to initial impressions like 11 isn't stable and is still very "buggy." I'm finding this to be not the case--even the "known:" issues aren't particularly disturbing, just noticeable now and then, like a slowed File Explorer. Letting Reliability Monitor run now shows this after two weeks:

    Doesn't mean anything other than that's the potential you can get with Windows 11 in this build. There was a "fatal error" a while back stating Windows Operating System stopped working but this message was removed via telemetry--prob. a false positive and I never observed any "failure" like that.

    The only complaint I have is regarding various features and apps I don't use and can't remove cleanly. Bloat, in other words.

    The uncertainty about getting those updates is why I still haven't tried this on a 10 year old PC (Microsoft communication vs reality so far).

    Same here. My 10 year old Desktop is more than capable of running it but if I get stuck without updates it would be painful to go back to 10 and reinstall everything. If it happened in the short term I could restore a backup. If it happened a year out it would not be practical to do so.
