just ran a test on my laptop and found incompatible just because I have gen 7 processor, everything else are meeting the requirement...

My laptop has a gen-5 processor but I can install Windows 11 without any issue providing my laptop has TPM2.0 enabled.

The Windows 11 even updated automatically and frequently. The key is how you install it, you must fresh install it. Don't upgrade your Windows, you will never pass the requirement inspection.

To get Windows 11 activated, just login using your Microsoft Live account. That Live account must be the same account you used to login to your legitimate Windows 10. It will automatically detect your new Windows and activated it.

Speed-wise, still fast. You notice it becomes slow when using software that use heavy processing like Adobe software. Even Office run fast. We're talking Windows 11 running on a 5th gen Core-i5 processor here.

Most 8th Gen and above are eligible.
No idea why AMD even old processor still supports.

Is it worth the hassle?

Win 10 seems to be functioning well.

Until it stops. Microsoft will stop providing security updates to Windows 10 soon, same thing that happens to Windows 7 & Windows XP
You don't get security updates anymore and after that all kind of security holes will be found by the hackers trying to hack into your PC and get your online banking details

And if that ever happens, who are you going to blame?

It's inevitable & there's nothing you can do about it. Anti-virus won't solve everything

I don’t think they will stop so soon as majority of people are still on Win 10 and most are still using pc that is technically not supporting Win 11.

They will probably only stop when Win 11 is on more than 50% of pc and after releasing a major service pack or something enabling most pc to upgrade without the hardware requirements.

Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025.

4 years should be enough time to save up for a new computer.

Nope. Windows 11 requirement for newer processors & TPM is necessary
They won't back down from that because secure boot and bitlocker is for the users protection, not for Microsoft own good

If the users refuses to upgrade their hardware, that's their own problem

Thats what I meant by "Soon"
We are already in the of 2021, that means you have 3 years left to upgrade the hardware
Use that time to save some money to buy a new PC

That why I mean why border about few years later thing, right? As long as we can run smoothly enough until Windows 11 is fully stable then migrate to Windows 11. My main desktop still running on Windows 10.

Agreed. That’s why I say it’s a hassle to do it now and knowing windows, it is always better to upgrade at least a year or two later where all the bugs are more thrashed out.

Maybe, or probably another Microsoft and Intel marketing tactics just like when Windows 10 released at first some older system is not compatible too.
