I decided to use my extra "freetime" during the pandemic to update the homelab from mostly Sandy/Ivy Bridge (Intel Core Gen 2 & 3) & single AMD AM3+ Opteron, along with the family's assorted desktops/laptops, mostly Haswell (Core Gen 4) and older.Well, that makes it easy for me - my ancient Ryzen 7 1700 will not be compatible with windows 11 - I mean it ancient with its little more than 4 years of age, surely it would be crazy to support such an ancient CPU.
A bit unsurprising though - windows 11 is just a patch onto windows 10, so if they broke something they have done something bad. Its not like windows 11 is a new OS, its still the same, just with stuff removed, so its more "secure" and different.All of my program downloaded and installed without a hitch, and I'm impressed at how much effort the developers put in for such an early and new release.
I guess you missed the "secure" - and by removing old CPU's without security features it by default becomes a little more secure, since they don't have to cater for old useless stuff and can remove code catering for that.This is standard Microsoft. Why do you think new paint equals more secure? When did Microsoft promise secure?
