So all this denial from MS seeking to deny its existence and what had been seen previously was just old conceptualising, etc. was just BS :)

I certainly was. It did fool some people. Me being one of those.
I still remember the statement that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows you'll ever need.

Now that W11 is official, is the forum topic "Windows 11 - Everything you need and want to know"  in the works?  ;D  or would we just be appending to this?  ???

I've modified the title so it should take care of everything related to Windows 11.

Does it really matter if we now install Windows 11 and then start endless updates on that OS or,
if the new OS is just another update to the current Windows 10?
Not that it really matters, Windows 11 is official just no place where you can get it currently.

Actually it doesn't matter for me, as apparently neither one of my laptops (both running W10) are compatible.

Hm, my latest machine might go well with Win 11, barely, but others are clearly not compatible :(

Mine won't qualify for the upgrade because of legacy BIOS and no TPM chip. I can purchase a TPM chip that will plug into the motherboard, but there's not much I can do about the BIOS without replacing parts. I just added a new SSD that Windows 10 is installed on, new power supply, 2 new case fans, a new CPU heatsink and fan, and new thermal paste for the processor and graphics card. It's nine years old and runs great. I am not giving up on this computer for Windows 11. Hopefully, Microsoft will relax the hardware related security requirements when 11 is released.


The good news is Windows 10 is supported until October 14, 2025.

I had one system where TPM was not turned on.
If you have the chip and need to turn TPM, open a RUN command (Windows key and R)
and type the following:

Check that the status for TPM in the management console shows as Ready
