The date has been announced: Microsoft will start offering Windows 11 on Oct. 5 to computers that fully meet its hardware requirements. But should you update?
With Windows 11, the decision isn’t so clear.
It might seem quaint, but once upon a time, customers used to line up overnight at the local tech store to get a copy of the latest and greatest Microsoft release. Now that we can update ourselves (assuming you have the right hardware), my recommendation is to hold off. It’s best to ensure that any major bugs have been fixed before installing Windows 11 and to make sure your vendors will support it.
