Yes, I think so too. TPM was disabled in my BIOS, I had to enabled it. The message went away after that. It's downloading now.

OK. Mine was also turned off, but I saw no reason to not turn it on and there were no problems with that. My linux dual boot continued working fine after I turned it on.

Surprised we already have a Windows 11 thread. Personally will hold a month maybe after it's launched for the bugs/etc to be fixed.

I hear Windows 11 is now available for download officially. Has anyone tried the official build yet?
I have opted into insider, thus, got the windows 11 update. Everything is just as windows 10, but with better animations and look. They also changed the settings app to a minimal look. Every change was welcome. Though, not based on facts, but my personal experience, I feel its a even more heavy on my system (not at all unexpected tbh :lol:).

IMO, its just windows 10, but with a little polish on top. Like windows 10 should have been.

They should have released it like an update to windows instead of making a new one
Well, that would make sense, wouldn't it? When have Microsoft's decisions ever made sense before? ;)

On a more serious note, I personally think, it was just for marketing. Giving out a fairly large overhaul, just as a update probably didn't made sense to microsoft, so, they decided to make the best of sun valley update and just rename that to windows 11.

I think microsoft is aware of the slowness of windows 11, this feedback poped up today, and yes, infact, I was experiencing more stuttering in recent gameplays.

I managed to install it last evening. But it was running very slow on my 7th gen NUC. And it was also definitely not stable. In about an hours usage, the explorer crashed twice.
There's quite a bit of adjustment to be made. The worst ones being that there's no show desktop or task manager on the taskbar context menu anymore. The Windows explorer is a more barebones now. Just when I was getting used to using the ribbon properly, they took it out.
And my most favourite customization app, 7 Taskbar Tweaker, was not working. It just makes life difficult for me because Windows refuses to provide basic functionality like changing the volume on scrolling on the volume icon, etc.

Eventually I rolled it back at the end of the hour. Will probably continue to use Windows 10 well into 2022, assuming they leave the choice up to me.

It now shows up when you right click the windows icon.

Woah, it crashed upon me just once though, after so many days. Its particularly good when you consider its a dev build.

Yeah, its definitely more heavy :(

Well, that's a relief at least

It might have been because the system is generally not very powerful (Dual core i5) or because the Windows partition had gotten almost 85% filled after the upgrade.
