Microsoft Windows 11

I am completely satisfied with the user experience on Windows 11 on my 6gen device 

I hope people start asking Microsoft to make it officially supported 

I am using : 

Unity 3D 2021 lts

Blender 3

Photoshop

and more of what requires some complex OS accuracy and I am using windows 11 as if it's normal 

Why Microsoft said this generation wouldn't be supported ?

I have TPM2.0 and Secure Boot on this machine and there is zero impact on the performance

Hi:

 

Same here, and I have installed W11 on 11 different Dell and HP PC's and notebooks that did not meet the hardware requirements and they all work great--including an old HP dc7800 CMT with an Intel E8300 processor, and it does not have a UEFI BIOS or support secure boot.

 

It does have a TPM 1.2 security chip though.

 

Here is why Microsoft is sticking to their guns regarding the processor cutoffs...

 

Why Windows 11 has such strict hardware requirements, according to Microsoft | Ars Technica

 

All of the PC's I have upgraded to seem to run on W11 even better than they did on W10.

 

Personally, I don't think Microsoft wants to deal with all of the W11 support help for older PCs like they did when they basically let any PC running Windows 7 upgrade to W10.

 

By narrowing the playing field to a limited number of PCs to support it makes things easier for them.
