Hi Richard,

I was given to understand that a lot of the 'minimum specs' this time
were in place because microsoft has strangely decided it cares about
your security. I don't think it's because they're required for
functionality, but more because microsoft thinks it owns your

I have received an update notice that Windows 11 is available for my
computer, however, I was informed, that the download could not go ahead
because, I do not have the necessary function turned on in the BIOS. As I
have said previously, I am going to wait for at least 6 months to a year,
before I upgrade. And, when I do upgrade, I will probably perform a new
install of Windows 11.

Glad to know, however I know that Windows 10 eventually won’t be supported
anymore and then I’ll have to upgrade so I figure I might as well do it once
I get it. Is there any way to find out when my PC might get it?

Hey guys, this message is particularly for those who are quite anxious to
run Windows 11 in your computers. You are not missing absolutely anything.

He seems to think the world will end if he can't run Windows 11. You are of
course entirely correct, installing Windows 11 by some sort of hack is
probably the worst thing you can do and there is absolutely no reason for
it. I still hear of things like File Explorer being fairly sluggish with all
screenreaders in Windows 11 and while I am also curious about Windows 11, I
am in no particular hurry and have a feeling that once I do maybe install it
on the one computer I currently own which says it can run it I will be
underwhelmed and find that on a day-to-day bases it will make little

Why would you want to install an unsupported operating system? My
understanding is that if you do, you may not get security updates. I'd
install the latest version of windows 10 and be content, even if you really
want 11, you probably don't want it for the first six months, unless you
like using your computer for a door stop instead of a computer. Leave the
first little while to those with spare computers.
