    Behaviour, not so much, it's very much a 'next' version of Windows 10 rather than the giddy jumps from 7 to 8 to 10. But it can measure the startup impact in Task Manager again
    As you would expect more has appeared in Settings, the above being a case in point. Settings > Apps > Startup now displays the startup impact too.
    The biggest change is a complete redesign of the Start menu - for a start there are no more Live Tiles and it's now in the middle of the taskbar by default, though you can shift it back to the left in Settings.
    John has been busy and has set up Eleven Forum now, and posted lots of screenshots.
    Bree,

    Thanks for that.

    Yes, I'd seen the screenshots and they were also very much a variation on a theme.

    All the best,
    Denis

    Well, it appears to be the real thing now that I have it running in a VM. It's going to make people with Legacy BIOS machines very unhappy though....

    Boo-hoo - as I don't really know whether my ThinkPad T450s has this capability, or not. Time for some Googling. But I guess I can struggle on with Windows 10 Pro for 4 years + if not?

    It sucks but we have to wait for the official beta and public build of windows 11 to confirm or deny it.

    It is an expectation as per the following sentence:

    we're expecting Windows 11 to be offered as a free upgrade to existing Windows 10 users

    Hello @Matthew,

    There is more than ONE reference for information other than the one that you have posted.

    If you follow Paul Thurrott [ 20+ years experience - Award-Winning Technology Journalist - News Director for the Petri IT Knowledgebase - Author ] or Mary Jo Foley [ 30+ years experience - Freelance Technology Writer, Author, Podcaster and News Editor ], who are BOTH highly regarded and respected within the MS Community, along with some of the Podcasts, you will see that they get all the upto date information on products and forthcoming changes etc, and provide a weekly update, along with the host Leo Laporte on an Internet Podcast Network Focusing and Technology Programme.

    The subject of Win 11 has been discussed in depth over the last couple of weeks.

    I was able to download a copy of Win11 in an .iso this evening. I am still up in the air as to whether it would be okay to install it.
    The dates on files is 30.5.2021. I guess I will try it on another machine and HDD.

    I installed it in a Hyper V VM which worked fine. I would not install something of dubious provenance on a full PC.

    FYI, a clean install of this W11 will require a minimum of UEFI and TPM 2.0, which none of my half-dozen or so machines have (only the newest one is capable of having its TPM firmware upgraded to 2.0).

    However, I have found that an in-place upgrade has no such restrictions. Here I upgraded a Legacy MBR install of Win10 Home in a Hyper-V VM with no TPM security to Win11.
