Windows 11
Just installed Win 11 on my 6 year old i7 iMac using the just released Parallels 17.1. Seems to work fine. I also installed it on a 4 year old Dell 9550 laptop (upgrade) using the Registry entry method. Works great there also. Only machine I had any problems at all was with my Dell 8930(which "met' the Win 11 system requirements) There I had the Killer app which was causing UDP packets to drop and so I got slow webpage loading on some websites. The latest Win 11 update fixed that though.

It was really unfair of Microsoft to require stiff hardware requirements. Since it seems to run on almost anything.

I have killer and experienced no problems (maybe a touch slower but so hard to tell) I have upgraded 3 machines with no problems at all, just a couple of minor issues which I would expect on a new pc. I think the stiffer hardware requirements are a good thing and are there for a reason....security

I had killer on my Alien, it was pure shite so disabled it. Tried it again on the last beta update (yesterday's one) as it hailed a 'fix'. It now works flawlessly

It was most noticeable on Youtube webpage. The video tiles would load slower than usual. After the fix multiple tiles load immediately.

Thanks for that, maybe I had an unaffected Killer but mine is very fast so hard to tell. ( I clicked like as well to help build your score up :) )
