I have some older clients systems that are respectively 3, 5, 7 years old and Windows 11 indicates the hardware is not acceptable.
Neat - Microsoft offers a utility to determine what is missing. So I download the msi windows check utility they offer and the first thing they want me to do is sign-in to Microsoft to start the analysis. Bad form and bad move Microsoft.
Windows 10 is going to be on these systems for another 5 years or until these systems die or are replaced. Its that simple. These clients put out some good money for an i3, i5 and i7 systems respectively and for Microsoft to deny them a Windows 11 upgrade, okay, fine, I see the light. Its Microsoft's decision, not the client what is and is not acceptable for their product.
For now, 98% of my clients will be staying on Windows 10 for the foreseeable future.
