    I will stay on Win 10 for now. But on VM will install Win 11 and watch phases what is change in OS. For Win 11 OS live install on boot for now my answer be: NO NO NO.

    Yes I will eventually, probably sometime in 2022,will wait until more bugs are fixed.
    Since Win7 I have waited until a few CU's are released.

    I'll only upgrade when it becomes stable or reaches RTM. Build 1904x is buggy enough due to 0x801F0005 "An invalid name request was made". I won't upgrade to Windows 11 right now due to being buggier than 1904x.

    All these imposed hardware requirements (except UEFI boot and TPM 2.0) are quite artificial. Even if I could disable UEFI and TPM requirements I will still wait. I can buy a TPM 2.0 device, the motherboard on my current desktop has support for that, but forcing me to buy a new processor. motherboard and potentially other hardware is a big NO from me. I actually went from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 and then Windows 10 because Windows 10 seemed to stable and good enough and because I want to have the best support for gaming.

    The processor part really is a strange one as it seems to be much more tightly tied to architecture than it is performance.

    There are approved CPUs that will be miserable to use with Windows 11 and great CPUs that are "...not compatible...".

    BIOS and microcode updates are supposed to fix actual issues, right? So what's the problem? They aren't even consistent with this as the support list changed and even now there are generations where some CPUs are supported but others aren't.

    The CPU restrictions are the most weird. We will have to wait, it is the first time Microsoft is trying to pull such a thing.

    Windows 11 has this weird thing where if I get a usb error it notifies me that there was an error in the past at every boot until I go into device manager and uninstall the usb root hubs, then reboot and let it repopulate. I only say this because there are weird annoying quirks, but nothing that breaks anything so far.

    This afternoon, when i went to one of the largest elecronics stores in europe, to get me a new mouse, i looked at every displayed windows laptop and not one showed any sign of "windows 11 ready" they run a "shell" showing the specs and all still said "welcome to windows 10":D nowhere is windows 11 advertised.

    I wonder if MS will force it upon users more than they did with 10.

    As always, first we get 1000's of posts on how to get it installed and believe me there will be at least that many trying to not get it installed;)

    People can live with chopped off limbs.
    But I doubt many actually prefer it.

    I've gotten Windows 10 to reach a nice sweet spot such that works without any real issue at all. It took time for Windows 10 to mature to the point where that was the case though, plus a bunch of tweaks/software to get the workflow I wanted, so Windows 11 will just end up throwing that out of balance with a whole new set of quirks for no real gain. There's too many examples of rushed-through-the-door design that I've seen with UI/system issues that may be fixed in the future, or with people developing workarounds. Better to just give it time to settle. Windows 10 will be supported until 2025 anyway, so that's plenty of time.

    My system is supported but others in the house are not. The s**tty though is that right now in Windows 10, if you can't upgrade to Windows 11 due to system requirements you'll get an ugly message in the Windows Update screen. Even when you dismiss it, this will stay permanently in the window sidebar:

    upload_2021-10-5_18-8-3.png

    So even if you don't give a s**t about Windows 11 because you can't upgrade, it'll stay there as a reminder that your hardware sucks apparently despite serving its function.
