Windows 11 free for you but might not work with your CPU
The Verge reported last week that many are discovering their hardware isn't compatible with the free upgrade from Windows 10.

Windows 11 will only officially support 8th Gen and newer Intel Core processors, and Apollo Lake and newer Pentium and Celeron processors.

It will also only officially support AMD Ryzen 2000 and newer processors, and 2nd Gen or newer EPYC chips.

Many Windows 10 users have been using Microsoft’s PC Health App to see if Windows 11 will work on their systems, only to find it doesn't.
This is great, keeps people updated Smile nothing worse than trying to support something 8+ years old.
Personally I think having to buy a new PC every few years is a bit worse. Not everyone wants to ditch a perfectly good system simply because someone at MS decided they're only supporting the absolute latest "something". It's costly, in money and time, and that, unneeded.

Windows 11: "a newly themed Windows 10".
