    Really should not have to purchase a New PC, just to meet MS Security Requirements... I do not have access to "Top Secret" documents.. Besides they are usually kept in a "Closet"...

    Not a chance, I'm afraid.

    But with the known workarounds Windows 11 can be installed and runs on almost anything, no matter how far below spec it may fall.

    Propably you will be able to activate Windows 10 with an 11 key.

    Brink,

    I'm sorry but to paraphrase the MS announcements by omitting the word "this" is to invite continued misinterpretation.
    What they said is
    MS said:
    January 31, 2023 will be the last day this Windows 10 download is offered for sale
    i.e. the last day this digital licence sale is offered.
    They have not said they will stop all Windows 10 downloads.

    The MS statements are also misinterpreted in several posts within
    Can I downgrade from W11 to W10 without incurring a Fee? - TenForums
    so clarifying matters in this News thread might help to prevent further confusion.


    All the best,
    Denis

    Title says it all.

    "This" in the quote was for that specific download, but it says the same for all the downloads offered for sale, so....

    I don't think this includes the usual ISOs though, but time will tell.
