Five Windows 10 devices - only one suitable for Windows 11.  :(

Microsoft as temporarily pulled its health check program that sees if your computer can run Windows 11, because it was too vague and didn't provide the level of detail they wanted. It's supposed to be re-appearing in the 2nd part of the year.

So if people want to use a program to check requirements then download from the link I posted earlier. It updates regularly, and we don't install it. It just runs.

But is it worth that cat and mouse game you may end up with for updates?

I still prefer Linux (Fedora KDE Spin) and only use Windows for gaming and AI upscaling.  The latter I do on the Mac Mini also as its quieter, uses very little power (21W vs 400W on desktop) and doesn't bake my room.

I'd seriously consider if you really need Windows.

One pc AMD Ryzen 7 3700x does ticked all green OK for Windows 11 including secure boot and TPM enabled but I wouldn't bother with W11 because I like Linux Mint on it. The only issues with Linux at the moment is 2.5Gbps ethernet driver kept disappear when updates as I to do manual command to put the driver back on. Also another issues for linux is the graphic card driver some times it can boot up with the correct driver and sometimes the driver wasn't there as I have to rebooted to ensure the driver there.

I only play around with windows 11 then will wiped off ssd when RTM final version thats required both secure and TPM  is needed for older pc. I will use Linux operating system on old pc Intel and new pc AMD.

That's curious, my Realtek 2.5Gbit USB adapter has been great on Linux - its my 5Gbit Aquantia adapter that's been a pain as it takes so long to initialise my NFS mounts timeout.

I managed tweak to force Windows 11 as the Windows 10. Much better!  ;D :D

I find it bizarre how after nearly a decade since I stopped updating my Windows Gadget, we now have Widgets again like its some fancy new thing we've never had before.

Windows gadget are the one of my favourite one! Windows 11 Widgets are horrible because it all news, sports, weather etc - useless as u can't add some features like CPU, Temp, Weather, Clock similar to gadget.

I'd have to figure out what API are using, may be they just havent created a widget for it yet.  Nobody seems to be sure if they will have a third-party API or not right now.

This is going to get confusing. MS have announced Win 10 21H2 in the Autumn when Win 11 21H2 launches. :|
