Windows 11 – to update or not to update … that is the question!

Some members will have received notifications on their computers that Windows 11 is now available, and inviting them to update.

Many, alas, will have been advised that their PC does not meet the minimum specifications for Windows 11, and they cannot update.

What category are you in? Should you update to Windows 11 or remain with Windows 10?

Whilst Windows 11 is the “next generation” operating system from Microsoft, about 55% of global PCs will be unable to update because they do not meet the stringent hardware requirements.

Your options, therefore, are to either invest in a new PC, or remain with your current one.

Windows 10 will continue to be supported by Microsoft until at least 14 October 2025 – and I feel certain that date will be further extended.

Most IT professionals will recommend that you not be an “early adopter”, and to wait until all the bugs and kinks are sorted out before considering an update. At least until the second half of this year, or early 2023.

To give you a better picture of the differences between Windows 11 and Windows 10, here are some review sites:

Many more can be found if you Google windows 11 vs windows 10 from your browser.
