Today is the day that Windows 11 is released to the general public. The release has been eagerly awaited by businesses and individuals alike. Here at Resolve, we too have been excited for the release, and as a Microsoft Silver Partner we were given prior access to the platform to familiarise ourselves with the system and have a good old fashioned 'play around'.
Ahead of today’s launch, a few worries came to light from some sources that claimed that “55% of workstations won't be able to be upgraded to Windows 11 due to Microsoft's stringent minimum hardware requirements" as reported by ZDNet. Other recent reviews as published on TechRadar praise the system for "bringing Windows to the modern age, thanks to its updated design and better ways to discover and download apps." So already it seems reviews on Windows 11 are somewhat mixed.
Our thoughts on Windows 11
In the coming weeks we will provide our own full write up of our thoughts on Windows 11, once we have had chance to thoroughly test the system. In the meantime, we are strongly advising our customers to not upgrade to Windows 11 on work computers just yet. Whilst we are not anticipating any major issues, we always encourage our customers to wait until the initial release phase is over and any problems are ironed out.
Any new PC’s will ship with Windows 11; please don’t be put off by this, but for now, we recommend our customers leave their existing computers running Windows 10 until further notice from us.
We will be sharing our thoughts on Windows 11 very soon, but for now, feel free to keep an eye on our social channels for up to date industry news or sign up to our newsletter for our monthly IT updates.
