Starting on October 5th, in addition to selling PCs pre-installed with Windows 11, a free upgrade from Windows 10 is finally available.
Microsoft is giving special attention to the initial rollout; that’s why the upgrade is being introduced in phases, focusing on thoroughly tested hardware and software configurations.
Updates are available for systems that have been thoroughly tested by Microsoft starting now, but Windows 11 will not be on other PCs for weeks or even months. In line with previous practice, Windows 10 will notify users when an update is available.
Microsoft’s caution is understandable, given the history of update issues with several major Windows 10 updates. Still, there is no rush to upgrade your system now; it’s best to wait for the developers to fix any teething problems and all the new features available.
