Windows 11 - Do we want it or can we even handle it?
« on: July 05, 2021, 05:50:01 pm »
Microsoft stated a while back that Windows 10 would be the LAST OS they intend to put out.  And here they are coming out with Windows 11.  Oh, by the way.  Support for Windows 10 will end sometime in 2025.



It's been stated that it will have a new UI, similar to something like Mac OS has.  But also try to bring back a failed UI that Windows 8.0 featured and failed.  Namely touch screen UI.  Also, there is loads of talk about TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) only support.  If your computer doesn't have this, you may not be able to install Windows 11.

Here is a list of processors that currently have TPM 2.0 support.  In short, AMD Ryzen 2000 series and up and Intel Core series, 8th gen and up have it on the processor.  But needs to be enabled in the UEFI.

So...  If Dave is able to find you a Intel Z370 or Z390 chipset mainboard, I have a Intel 8700K I can give you to help get you up to date enough to run Windows 11.  If you want it?

Word to the wise though.  You would need a decent cooler for it as there is no factory cooler for it.

Yes, more than a little frustrated that the Microsoft gods have declared my i7-7700 obsolete.
I will also never understand why Microsoft thinks it needs to be more like Mac. If we wanted a Mac, I think most of us would buy a Mac???

From what I hear, you can still install windows 11 on older systems.  From my understanding, the caveat is, it won't let you use automatic updates?

But yeah.  I know what you mean.  Microsoft is again trying something off the wall new for them and very few are liking the direction they are taking.  Most are seeing this as another windows me or windows 8 disaster.  :duh:

I noticed that Windows really wants to be ahead of the future and sees the future as being all touch screens.

That may be true with laptops and tablets.  But when was the last time you saw a modern traditional desktop monitor or TV with touch screen support?  Let's just say, it's extremely rare.

I presume it was, yes. It was 2 years ago now at least. But he enjoyed showing it off to the whole family.

 I kinda assume you haven't sent her that 8th gen I7 yet. I have that 8th gen motherboard (pins repaired. and 16gb ddr4 that now works dual channel, once she gets the chip to me I can figure how decent of a cooler it will need for her case. Once she gets the time to do another upgrade.
