Default Windows 11

Quote:
Microsoft has drawn an arbitrary line and declared that PCs and laptops with processors from only a few years ago (even 2018) won't work with Windows 11. This is crazy and Microsoft should be ashamed of itself.

Windows 11 won't support Intel Core chips like the i3, i5, i7, etc that are older than the 8th generation or AMD Ryzen 3/5/7 processors before the 3xxx series. The Ryzen 3 3xxx only came out in 2019!
Typical Microsnot, this is going to affect 100's of millions of computers around the globe, 10/10 for stupidity you bleeding muppets. What about the environmental damage of all these PC's being sent to landfills will cause, aren't they bloody bothered about that.

Interesting

Question will the be a successor to WIN10
Answer No Win10 is the latest and the last og operativ system.

It is therefore interesting to hear that Microsoft is preparing for WIN11.

Windows 10's retirement date is 14/10/2025, that statement by Microsnot that this windows version will be the last version ever is a load of rubbish, I've also heard from one of my Tech buddies that there will be a Windows 12 version further down the line as well, this was their masterplan when they retired Win7 and everyone fell for it.

Microsoft is unrepentant and insists that mandating you have at least an Intel 8th generation processor, or at least an AMD Zen 2 based processor, is still the minimum for Windows 11. But is that the full story? Let's find out.


This saga is going to run and run until Microsnot get their act together.

I update my W10 machine via WUS just twice a year, if that often. Having an i7 8700K, which is 8th generation, I could downgrade further on the Windows 11 hype train, but why would I want that? Its a gaming machione, and all serous, sensible stuff is being done on a second, much secured Linux machine.

I am more interested to learn about whether Facebook will and can stick to its decision to make use of FB mandatory for already existing Occulus users having bought their device before the policy change to force new buyers already now to have an active FB profile. German anti-cartel authorities are investigating and two court battles are being fought currently, and this enforcement is the reason why Occulus since many months does not sell in Germany anymore. Recent rumours and news indicate that Zuckerberg may want (or need to) change his policy there, and that Oculus users then can stay free of facebook even beyond January 1st 2023.

They can keep their W11. I don't care. And I will not buy a new system if the old one is not broken. It still is overkill for my needs, with FS and ACC being the only exceptions than can push it to its full capability.

There were several bugs on my Windows 10 computer. All I can say now is that temporary files cannot be deleted by themselves, even though it is a built-in feature of Windows 10. So I had to manually clean it up. Although I was able to solve this problem somehow with the help of this article. I hope there will be no such bugs or problems in Windows 11.

Windows 11, a completely new experience. On your completely new PC.
Win 10 will be supported until 2025, so you can continue to use this for a while.

An older PC will not do anymore for Win 11 coming out in october 2021. When your PC does not have a 7th generation CPU and UEFI mainboard with a tpm 'trusted platform module' chip, you will not be able to run it.
You can easily check your PC by typing "tpm.msc" in the command line – if none can be found your pc will be obsolete for Win 11.
Any PC/Laptop bought after 2023 with Win 11 will also have to have a 720 dpi camera onboard for face recognition to unlock your PC, along with some other requirements.

An older article, things have again changed since:
https://blogs.windows.com/windows-in...-requirements/

This coming at a time where processor and electronics prices are reaching the moon..

Holy sh1t. The StaSi's and China's wettest dreams coming true.

This really is an argument to finally turn away from Windows PCs forever.

And no, not one second I believe that these biometric data will be kept safe and away from government and intel services as well as private businesses. Not one second I believe that.

Well, the UK as well as the EU openly debate a copying of the Chinese social notes and scoring system that rewards regime-friendly behaviour and sanctions behaviour violating compliance with regime norms. So nobody should be surprised that Microsoft does this stunt now.
