I actually kinda like simplistic logos. I guess that's a somewhat unpopular opinion, but there we go.

The only thing that's somewhat bothering me about the Windows 11 logo is that it has sharp corners, which is in no way reflective of the actual OS. I think they should have given the logo round corners, kinda like the Windows 1.0 logo. That's really a nitpick, though.

--------------------
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
Oh, yeah, about the logos: The trend for flat design indeed gets applied too blindly and many logos surely end up being too bland (four squares in a single colour? Come on, it can't get any more bland than that!) but the same can't be said for Firefox given its colours and still having a relatively complex shape.

Like I said in this thread, it seems that Windows 10 is about to end in four years or less, so people might need to switch to the latest version when it's released. Also, the devs at Wine would have a hard time to make Windows 11 apps work on other Linux distros!

Where... are you going with that response, considering it doesn't really match up with my quoted post and reads confusingly as well?

well four years to some people seems like a long time

maybe in 2025 I'll just get a brand new PC with a pre-installed Win11 version from that time. no need for me to switch to Win11 in late 2021 since the first release of that will have some bugs to be ironed out which will eventually get fixed in future feature updates for Win11

in the meantime, I'm happy running Win10 LTSC 2019, which has a much different support timeline and will be supported beyond 2025
Well, well, well! We now have an official release date for Windows 11: The next-gen OS will be released on October 5th as a free upgrade, so stay tuned for that!

Also, if you're planning to upgrade your PC to Windows 11 from an older version Windows, make sure that your PC is eligible for the upgrade. "The upgrade will then roll out over time to in-market devices based on intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, age of device and other factors that impact the upgrade experience," as stated in this article from the Windows Experience Blog.

Therefore, everyone should get a free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022!

Do note that Windows 11 will force you to have a 64-bit capable computer, which makes perfect sense in today's day and age, but will also "force" you to have TPM 2.0 and SecureBoot enabled on your UEFI config.

However, for those who like to dual-boot, or don't want to upgrade to an officially supported device to run Windows 11, you don't have to. Windows 11 runs just fine without TPM or SecureBoot, you just need to tinker the installer to trick it into installing anyway. After that, Windows will apparently run just fine, even on a computer that still uses a BIOS instead of UEFI.

A good ol' Linus Tech Tips video has more info and a tutorial on how to bypass the minimum requirements. The solutions include either editing specific registry keys, or swapping files between the Windows 11 installer and the Windows 10 one. It also includes some potential explanations about why Microsoft has these requirements in the first place.

I'll likely do a fresh install of Windows 11 on a small SSD and use one of the Windows 10 Education keys my college has allocated to me on it. I use Windows a few times a year and I don't need it around for anything other than some software and a couple of games that refuse to run under Linux (natively or with Wine/Proton).
