Windows 11 available on October 5

  • Staff
Today, we are thrilled to announce Windows 11 will start to become available on October 5, 2021. On this day, the free upgrade to Windows 11 will begin rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs and PCs that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 will start to become available for purchase. A new Windows experience, Windows 11 is designed to bring you closer to what you love.

As the PC continues to play a more central role in our lives than ever before — Windows 11 is ready to empower your productivity and inspire your creativity.

Here are 11 highlights of this release


1. The new design and sounds are modern, fresh, clean and beautiful, bringing you a sense of calm and ease.

2. With Start, we’ve put you and your content at the center. Start utilizes the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to show you your recent files no matter what device you were viewing them on.

3. Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops provide an even more powerful way to multitask and optimize your screen real estate.

4. Chat from Microsoft Teams integrated into the taskbar provides a faster way to connect to the people you care about.

5. Widgets, a new personalized feed powered by AI, provides a faster way to access the information you care about, and with Microsoft Edge’s world class performance, speed and productivity features you can get more done on the web.

6. Windows 11 delivers the best Windows ever for gaming and unlocks the full potential of your system’s hardware with technology like DirectX12 Ultimate, DirectStorage and Auto HDR. With Xbox Game Pass for PC or Ultimate you get access to over 100 high-quality PC games to play on Windows 11 for one low monthly price. (Xbox Game Pass sold separately.)


7. Windows 11 comes with a new Microsoft Store rebuilt with an all-new design making it easier to search and discover your favorite apps, games, shows, and movies in one trusted location. We look forward to continuing our journey to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our collaboration with Amazon and Intel; this will start with a preview for Windows Insiders over the coming months.

8. Windows 11 is the most inclusively designed version of Windows with new accessibility improvements that were built for and by people with disabilities.

9. Windows 11 unlocks new opportunities for developers and creators. We are opening the Store to allow more developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to bring their apps to the Store, improving native and web app development with new developer tools, and making it easier for you to refresh the look and feel across all our app designs and experiences.

10. Windows 11 is optimized for speed, efficiency and improved experiences with touch, digital pen and voice input.

11. Windows 11 is the operating system for hybrid work, delivering new experiences that work how you work, are secure by design, and easy and familiar for IT to deploy and manage. Businesses can also test Windows 11 in preview today in Azure Virtual Desktop, or at general availability by experiencing Windows 11 in the new Windows 365.

Thank you to the Windows Insider Community


The Windows Insider community has been an invaluable community in helping us get to where we are today. Since the first Insider Preview Build was released in June, the engagement and feedback has been unprecedented. The team has also enjoyed sharing more behind the scenes stories on the development of Windows 11 in a new series we launched in June, Inside Windows 11. We sincerely appreciate the energy and enthusiasm from this community.

Rolling out the free upgrade to Windows 11 in a phased and measured approach


The free upgrade to Windows 11 starts on October 5 and will be phased and measured with a focus on quality. Following the tremendous learnings from Windows 10, we want to make sure we’re providing you with the best possible experience. That means new eligible devices will be offered the upgrade first. The upgrade will then roll out over time to in-market devices based on intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, age of device and other factors that impact the upgrade experience. We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022. If you have a Windows 10 PC that’s eligible for the upgrade, Windows Update will let you know when it’s available. You can also check to see if Windows 11 is ready for your device by going to Settings > Windows Update and select Check for updates*.

Ready to elevate to 11? There’s never been a better time to purchase a new PC


October 5 is right around the corner — and there are a few things you can do to get ready for Windows 11. First, if you’re in need of a new PC now — don’t wait. You can get all the power and performance of a new Windows 10 PC and upgrade to Windows 11 for free after the rollout begins on October 5**.

We’ve worked closely with our OEM and retail partners to bring you powerful Windows 10 PCs today, that will take you into the future with Windows 11. Here are a few to check out.

I've shredded plenty of them myself over the years. I only keep a few items on BD's like digital music and personal files along with several hd's. My next desktop will probably be void of an optical disk drive as I also have a portable bdrw that connects to any pc with a usb port.

I'm scared to ask... 😟
Yeah a lot of moneys. :wink:

Although, some were just burned data on DL disks. Last time my friends and I ordered writeable DVDs, we got 10k packed in spindles. Was several boxes where each weighed 25kg. 😂

That is what I did with this build to forgo internal optical drives, and SSDs to eliminate all cabling that I could. Two M.2 drives on the motherboard, and an external USB BD is all I wanted for this build. In keeping with the minimalist design I probably should have gone with graphics off the CPU to eliminate that cable as well but I may yet reinstall some Dirt games for a little entertainment so I put the RX480 from the old build in. I was liking the minimalist design while building, and now enjoy the clean look through the glass as well.

DVD? What's that? 👀

...aah, it's those frisbees... :zany:
No, it's what I get when I mount a video ISO to play it in any of my DVD players. What? you mean they once were physical disks? How quaint ;)

I do keep an installable copy of windows on a dvd dl rw just in case its needed. I'll probably erase the disk with 10 on it soon.

If you erase the disc everytime, it's not better to use USB ?

Sometimes you have better success using a DVD than USB. Some systems can be a bit tricky to boot from USB

I agree with you. But some computer stores (In my country) stop selling dvd-r dl. Only dvd-r. But I hope I'll find them in other stores.
Do you use them for IP builds also ?

If the computer was built recent enough to meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11, there should be no issues booting it from USB flash drive.

True. Then it also most likely don't have any DVD drive anyways.

So do I, mostly my own recordings, TV broadcasts, family movies, thst sort of thing. In fact some of the family stuff was transfered from Super-8 to VHS in the first place. Long ago I copied the best of them from VHS to DVD (I also had a DVD recorder). More recently I have transfered from DVD to .mp4 files. They're all on an external HDD now.

I was just offered the W11 update on my Surface Laptop through the normal Windows Update route - 19 days after the official launch. It took just 60mins, about 10mins to download, 40min to install and then about 10mins after the reboot to the desktop.

All looking good so far - it is now just updating with KB5006746 and I am about to restart. I'll report back later.

Added info: All now updated including the MS Store apps. Very pleased with the whole Windows update process.

Glad you were able to update without issue. All of my upgradable pc's are AMD based and none of them could complete the upgrade process forcing me to clean install every one of them which was a good thing on a new OS.

I think that may be specific to the type of AMD processor, my System One has an AMD Athlon and completed the upgrade without issues.
