    I'd agree with that wholeheartedly. There are some of those who don't realise it, on the other Windows 11 thread.

    Re: Windows 11 coming soon

    It looks to me that the target for Win11 is probably 2-in-1 devices like the Surface Pro. The features I have seen look like they will make the Surface better, and I'm pretty happy with the two I have at the moment. I'm not sure that I'd use it in tablet mode anyways, but running Android apps could be useful.

    I know that link looks like the Windows 11 announcement, but if you watch for a few minutes you'll see it is just movie clips that are an analog of it.

    There sure isnít much information around on this new win11, but if it ends up requiring a new machine upgrade to run, it will even be difficult to test whether current developed VB6 apps will run without problems on Win11?

    I have tried the evaluation tool on several machines now. Some get rejected by the Installer package ("unsupported CPU hardware"), some get rejected as having inadequate RAM, boot drive space, boot drive type (eMMC-based mini-PCs seem to be cast on the dung heap), video card, or even monitor size. Even the lack of binding to a Microsoft Account or an Internet connection disqualifies a machine.

    If people thought Vista held a candle to the suckage of Windows Me... they ain't seen nuthin' yet!
    So...are we past it is a hoax?

    Isn't it great that if you have enough money the requirements will be lowered for you?

    Well it's considered to have a good computer in the future of the IT Industry to keep on getting smaller, faster and also more powerful, even. Then it goes with progress, even to keep on upgrading and gaining new ground, even so

    Why would it require a new machine? Obviously it will run better on a newer machine but should run just fine on any middle of the road PC purchased within the last 10 years. I have an old one here that is over 10 years old and even it almost doubles the minimum specs shown on that link and it was a reasonably cheap pc when I bought it.

    Edit: The machine I am using now is 6 core/12 thread 3.2ghz with 16gb ram, it is 3 years old and cost me under $1000 to build and far exceeds the minimum requirements.

    Did you miss the main point of the thread? My PCs bought in 2016 are 6th gen and aren't on the supported list.

    The main point of the thread? I had looked at the requirements in general and they seem pretty low. I then drilled into the so called supported processors and do not see mine in the list either, but then just for giggles I looked at the supported lists for Windows 7, 8 and 10 and I have all of those running on Processors that are not on their lists either so those lists are incomplete.

    For example I have Windows 7, 8 and 10 all running on AMD Phenom CPUs and have Windows 7 running on an old Athlon x64.
    This system is running a Ryzen 5 1600 and that one does not show up in their Windows 11 list even though it runs circles around some of the CPUs that are listed.

    Hopefully the Vb6 apps will run on windows 11, but I canít test them unless I install windows 11 on one of my Win10 machine. But so far, none of my Win10 machines pass the win11 test. (Even though theyíre less than 12 months old).

    I didn't try to install W11 in my PC, but I wanted to know if mine had TPM 2.0.
    Running Tpm.msc returns that "Compatible TPM cannot be found".
    I thought that mine didn't have it, but going to the PC setup, there was the option but it was set to disabled.
    I enabled it, and after that Tpm.msc returned the info about TPM.

    What is your system config, cpu, ram and so on?

    I notice on the list of supposed supported processors they have the Athlon 300U but not the Ryzen 5 1600 yet the Ryzen 5 1600 is a more powerful CPU so one would think if it runs on the lesser CPU it will run good on the superior CPU. Looking at their list there are definitely a lot of processors that support some of those OSes but are not listed.

    I only saw 7 there, did I miss a Page 2?

    Most of it seems to be an attempt to pull the unwarted Metro travesty from the dung heap. I expect a big fail, but you never know. The masses don't need a PC, so trying to cater to the tiny Windows Tablet crowd at the expense of the desktop market seems ill advised.

    I'm looking at it more from an office support capacity. How it will affect the platforms we support. We are still keeping large VB 6.0 applications running, with baling wire and spit, and Windows 10 made us jump through hoops. That is partly why I am concerned about it coming out, when, and VB 6.0 support.

    As far as at home I don't care. I mostly use my laptop for email, documents, and web browsing.

    Re: Windows 11 coming soon

    I am fairly sure it is really just a GUI change along with some enhancements. It isn't a major upgrade, more of a minor improvement with changes to the interface, a mere point release not worth the fuss if it weren't coupled with hype and a feck up or two.

    MS are never going to allow a big change like XP or Win7 or even Win10 to happen to their marketing again as this has always back-fired with the natural resistance of slacking users to upgrade.

    This time Win10 is already "ancient" in computer-time while Win11 deliberately requires shiny newer generation of CPUs and won't run on scrap boxes so that it is perceived as a more modern OS and of greater value by the neophytes.

    Everything about consumer electronics/market revolves around vogue du jour. Making something more desirable by limiting supply (need better PC) is a very old trick. Hope they don't artificially increase the price -- another one-trick marketing pony.

    Since VMware can't install the bluetooth/ThumbDrive/Ethernet etc drives, I can't install VB6 for testing though I can get those installation file through share folders. I am sure I miss something...I use VMware Workstation player v15.7.

    I saw some talk about that in one of the links I attached but I'm not all that familiar with the impact of those requirements. I tend to get a new laptop every couple of years anyway.
