    No, it's still W10 underneath.

    There is NO WAY Microsoft will do that.

    That would be corporate suicide!

    You should probably take into account that the vast majority of users, both private and corporate, not only do not understand the difference between NT and UNIX, but also do not care. What people require is a working PC. The one that can be turned on and used, with the possibility to seamlessly exchange information (files) with other people and to seamlessly use external devices (printers, cameras, etc.) without having to hunt the internet for things like drivers. This is the MS edge (no pun intended).

    A good example is Apple - they did switch from whatever they were doing before to a UNIX-like (please don't tell me that Linux and UNIX are so different that I need to keep track of it) kernel and nothing happened - people who were buying Macs before, are still buying them.

    Well yes, kind of, but actually no. They were pretty clever about it and that was nothing like this unfounded rumor of a linux kernel. Windows 11, or whatever this will be called (because they still did not name it officially) is based on NT and it is very similar, almost identical to Windows 10 in-core. A switch to a Linux kernel is almost impossible because it would completely break compatibility: programs, drivers, device support, everything.

    (please don't tell me that Linux and UNIX are so different that I need to keep track of it) kernel
    Uhm, you need to keep track of it. Sorry pal. What Apple has, or had, is none of that. Not UNIX and not Linux. It has loose ends of both, but also some from BSD and from their own... The example is wrong because, with extremely hard work, Apple could ensure some degree of compatibility to smoothen transition but this would be IMPOSSIBLE for a Windows kernel to Linux kernel switch. Also no point.
    A car manufacturer who can produce engines has no reason to use an engine from another maker.

    However, Apple is a whole different world, lets not get them in the mix, that's my advice.

    Hi there
    The "leaked" W11 build that most seem to be using is :

    21996.1.210529-1541.co_release_CLIENT_CONSUMER_x64FRE_en-us.iso

    It's actual size is 4.874.553.344 bytes probably shown as 4.5 GB in some measurements. That iso seems to have some sort of reasonable provenance but if you want to install -- install on a VM first as who knows what Ms are intending to do.

    Screenshots, peoples experience etc are available over at the elevenforum

    cheers

    Not much of a workaround needed. Just enable Intel VT-X or AMD-V in your BIOS SETUP (also known as virtualization support) and then fire up VMWare Player and let it play.
