Windows 11 unveiled - Features and release date

Nearly six years after the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has confirmed that there will be a new version of its desktop operating system — Windows 11.

Speaking during a much-anticipated live-streamed event on Thursday, Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay and his team showcased features and shared details on the new OS.

Notable changes include a revamped and simplified design, performance improvements, new gaming features, major Windows Store changes, and Teams integration.

Plenty of time.
Good timing on other fronts though... I'm looking at buying my pops a new PC since I can't stand the home support on his old one anymore. Was waiting for 11 to land.

Yep, their Health Check tool is stuffed.
I'll wait a while before opting for 11.
Work and stability is more important right now.

I like the UX redesign, reminds me of macOS/Linux. First thing I noticed when switching to macOS is just how much better everything looked, I loathe the flat design/sharp corners in Windows 10.

This looks good imo
Was my biggest gripe apart from forced offline updates. The flat big button tablet design should never make it to an OS. I can't say for sure without taking it for a spin. Might still need Open Shell but should be easier to do. TPM and secure boot is a crap deal breaker though but they'll bow to pressure soon to remove it.

Ja, I think TPM is what is making mine fail that test.

Solved. You basically have to have TPM 2.0 to use windows 11, stupid requirement but it is slightly safer but will totally kill it for most people. I mean the hell were they thinking with that.

If you are on Ryzen, make sure it's set to fTPM on Firmware not discrete (default). That was the issue for me.

There is a bypass , goolge it , replace the appraiserres.dll file in the Sources folder with one from Windows 10
Telling people to touch their .dll files isn't a fun way to fix problems. But that probably even lets you install it.

Same! I was also surprised at it saying it can't run Win11 :ROFL:

My machine is from 2013 so maybe the TPM issue? all other specs are above with an SSD. 4th Gen i7
