Is Windows 11 Around the Corner?

Recommended Posts

Quote

Windows 11 update will improve the legacy apps and features of the operating system. On the surface, we're expecting Windows to appear more modern with consistent design language, at least for first-party apps.

If the alleged legacy apps improvement makes my PCI audio card work the way it did a few Windows 10 updates ago, bring on Windows 11!!!!

Maybe we will have options like:

[   ]  It used to work under Windows 10 v. 1809 .

Maybe all the Compatibility Telemetry activity over the past year or two will be put to good use with the release of Windows 11.

Amused by Microsoft's claim in 2015 that Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows... 🙄

of course there is the subscription pandemic crowd..........

I don't see that ever happening.  It would be a wet dream for Linux fanboys.   3rd party developers would suffer since I can't imagine users wanting to constantly pay for an OS.   It may work for office and photo apps for the casual user but we are talking about an OS here.

Pro upgrade was free also. Like for like. Home for Home, Pro for Pro, etc.

I traded up a copy of Windows 7 Pro for a Windows 10 Pro license.

I suspect it will mean the end of the road for my old Gen 1 Focusrite 2i4, it causes enough blue screens as it is in Windows 10.

Still, it's been a good workhorse and it doesn't owe me anything.

I wonder if a next gen Windows will be better or worse for legacy applications?

It'll just not be called Windows, hence Windows 10 will have been the last version of "Windows".  Problem solved 🙂

I wouldn't expect it to be better with legacy applications.

The further you get (development/time wise), the wider the gap... and greater the odds of issues.

I remember reading, "Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows."

That's akin to saying, "I'll never do _____."  Almost always winds up happening.  🤪

I read somewhere (can't find link now) that Windows 11 fixes the problem a lot of people have (for years now) of app windows rearranging when computer wakes up from sleep. This is for multi monitor setups. So if you've carefully put PRV and console windows
on one monitor and track window on another monitor, then  after the computer wakes up  all the app windows have moved and you have to move them back.

This link shows how you can get the fix via MS Insider Program

It looks like my nine-year-old system won't run Windows 11.

This article in PC World mentions Microsoft's PC Health Check app, which includes the ability to see if your system can run Windows 11.

https://www.pcworld.com/article/3622940/windows-11-system-hardware-requirements.html

I downloaded it and ran it, and it looks like my  system doesn't have TPM, at least not the right version.

My PC runs just fine, and I don't feel like replacing it so I can run Windows 11, so I'll miss out on the excitement.

Looks like my DAW PC is in the same boat... better start saving up for a new DAW PC!

I found out that my Asus Z390-A motherboard is only equipped with a TPM 14-1 pin header, part sold separately.

Fortunately the Asus TPM module is only a $15 part at Amazon and Newegg. Availability is 1-2 weeks. Better hurry... 😉

AMD fTPM (onboard Ryzens) apparently satisfies the requirement.  That said, I've never been able to get Windows 10 to play ball with mine (it constantly says it needs to be cleared).
