    Many of these tech sites just parrot what other tech website said, rather than actually check facts.

    " systems that are upgraded this way may not be entitled to get Windows Updates, even security ones"
    "workaround is designed primarily for businesses to evaluate Windows 11"
    "Microsoft won’t be officially supporting any Zen 1 CPUs"
    Wtf are you talking about?

    Microsoft now tells us that this install workaround is designed primarily for businesses to evaluate Windows 11, and that people can upgrade at their own risk as the company can’t guarantee driver compatibility and overall system reliability. Microsoft won’t be recommending or advertising this method of installing Windows 11 to consumers. In fact, after we published this post, Microsoft reached out to tell us about one potentially gigantic catch it didn’t mention during our briefing: systems that are upgraded this way may not be entitled to get Windows Updates, even security ones. We’re asking Microsoft for clarification.
    Unless you're suggesting that they're lying, it literally says they were briefed by Microsoft on it. How much better fact checking can you get than that?

    All they're saying is that you will be able to install it- not that it will be supported.

    There is a link in the article to the new PC Checker that MS have made, its different to the Original, and instead of a list as long as my arm why it wont work, there's only 3. Two of which is a simple case of changing a few settings. The Third is the CPU.

    The link works ok but you have to join the insider program to get anything from that page.

    If its on a website , it must be true. Internet 101 . Believe everything .
    Do you not remember all the previous ~facts~ that turned out to be false.
    No official statement from MS , then dont believe it.

    "Microsoft is announcing today that it won’t block people from installing Windows 11 on most older PCs"
    Where did they announce that . Give me the official MS link & Ill believe it.
    Insiders releases dont count , Im talking about official final releases

    "Overall, it’s a big change that means millions of PCs may not be left behind, technically. "
    What a load of nonsense
    You wont be able to get updates, so YES THOSE PCS WILL BE LEFT BEHIND

    "the actual minimum Windows 11 specs mean that CPU generations don’t matter"
    yes , CPU generation will still matter . Ryzen 1st gen still not supported .

    "Microsoft won’t be officially supporting any Zen 1 CPUs"
    Wait, didnt that article just say CPU generation wont matter ?

    So that website basically says, nothing has really changed. The current hacks to install W11 on old PC's will still work , you wont get updates.
    Not helpfull or usefull at all.
    Its like saying, yes you can install Office for free , its stops working after 30days

    How about a dual boot install then if things turn to crap you can just delete the Win 11 partition.
