Windows 11?

Has anyone updated to W11?

Was the process smooth?

How long did the update take?

Is it a new experience or just subtle changes?

 

I have been holding off to W11 on my HP Pavilion for a few weeks now.

Re: Windows 11?

Definitely not a new experience.  It seems to me more of a big update to 10 than an all new Windows.  

I've been running it in a couple virtual machines since before it was officially released, and haven't had any major problems or needed much of a learning curve.

Re: Windows 11?

My old laptop that I've had for close to 10 years was rejected for the update by Microsoft due to baseline hardware configuration.  It's been a great laptop (early gen i3, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD) and still has plenty of power for what I use it for.   I laughed out loud and closed the lid on the laptop.

Re: Windows 11?

Thanks @rostrow416 .  I allowed the upgrade.  It was easy and fairly painless in my case. 

Had the software to do it's thing early this morning and signed in to Windows 11.

haha @RobertJ   Usually, everything crashes on me but I have a fairly new mid- level touch screen laptop:

 

Intel Core i3 (11th gen) 3.0 GHz

8 GB of RAM
