Welcome back to our Windows news recap, where we go over the top stories of the past week in the world of Microsoft’s flagship operating system.
At the last minute, Microsoft provides a path to upgrading unsupported hardware to Windows 11
Whilst Windows 11 got a heated start with its strict hardware requirements, it appears that an upgrade path has surfaced at the last minute for PCs that are unsupported, allowing them to upgrade to Windows 11 regardless, albeit with a caveat that they might not receive security updates.
Wow. Well, Microsoft didn't lie. You can in fact install Windows 11 on any PC using the Media Creation Tool. Here I am updating Windows 7 on this ThinkPad X200 to Windows 11. Insane. Wonder how it'll work in the unsupported state. 😬 pic.twitter.com/xGqM5UfpIm
