I’ve been testing Windows 11 from the Windows Insider Preview since July 7, 2021, and its been obvious that it was going to be released long before Christmas, i.e. it was that good already! This early release date also means that Windows 11 computers will be ready for Christmas.
I mentioned in the August 27, 2021 update – “IMHO, that people are planning on buying a new computer wid Windows 11 already installed on it.” I think everyone, other than the usual few naysayers and/or whiners, can ‘Feel’ that Windows 11 is going to be *SPECIAL*. Over 1.3 *BILLION* Windows 10 users are excited about the pending arrival of Windows 11, and there are many others also.
- OK…First off, Satya Nadella is the best ‘Thang that has ever happened to ‘n wid Microsoft. A Man of Vision.
- Secondly, one of the most interesting ‘Thangs that I noticed in the – Windows 11 available on October 5 – announcement, is the roughly 13 laptops shown ‘n mentioned in the announcement, and barely a peep on desktop PC’s. Not sure if it means anything, but it could mean that some laptops can be had cheaply between now and the US Labor Day holiday. Looking for a Linux laptop? XPS 13 Laptop @ $849, I bet that price comes down.
- Thirdly, for those wid Windows 10 unsupported computers, they still have until Oct 14, 2025 before the Retirement Date arrives:
I have a month to plan my moves, and to see how/when the Windows 11 iso is going to be offered. Will have to see if it works the same as before, where you just do the OS upgrade to your computer, which registers it on Microsoft’s file system, and then you can do a totally clean install. Getting the upgrade registered first is the key to an easy clean install later.
‘The first version of a new era of Windows – As Panos shared in June, Windows is more than an operating system; it’s where we connect with people, it’s where we learn, work and play. We can’t wait to see what Windows 11 empowers you to do and create .. Windows has always existed to be a stage for the world’s innovation. It’s been the backbone of global businesses and where scrappy startups became household names. The web was born and grew up on Windows. It’s the place where many of us wrote our first email, played our first PC game and wrote our first line of code. Windows is the place people go to create, to connect, to learn and to achieve – a platform over a billion people today rely on.’
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
