Hi. This is frustrating.

I am on the MS "How to get W11" website. And I see no download/upgrade button.

I went to some other sites, and the same thing. I am told what W11 can do, how great it is, etc. but I see no download/upgrade button.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

I have been using Win 11 since build 22000.51 (June).

If you hope that Windows 11 will be "great", you risk disappointment. There are so me interface changes, but not a lot of strong superiorities to 10. Maybe those will come in time.

It also fails to support many PCs that are more than a couple of years old. Intel CPUs must be Generation 8 or later, and AMD CPUs second generation Ryzen or later.

Windows processor requirements Windows 11 supported Intel processors

Windows processor requirements Windows 11 supported AMD processors

I'll continue using 11, but it's not life-altering.

Yeah - turns out my laptop is not compatible :/

Will stick to W10 on my lap, and W7 on my desktop for now.
