Windows 11 - 2021/10/07 18:05 FROM: ARRL letter.

Microsoft Releases Windows Version 11

The official release date for the new Windows 11 operating system is October 5, Microsoft has announced, but it will be a slow reveal. Radio amateurs may be eager to learn if it will run the station software they're running under Windows 7 or Windows 10, and if they'll need new device drivers.

"We are not too concerned," said Tom Wagner, N1MM, of the widely popular, free logging software that bears his call sign -- N1MM Logger+. "One member of the team and one end user has tested with Windows 11 and not reported issues. We will fix them if they arise."

The WSJT-X Development Group is similarly unconcerned. "A few WSJT-X users have been running on the beta Windows 11 release without any issues," said Bill Somerville, G4WJS. "This seems to be reasonable evidence that there should be no serious problems."

Microsoft said that the free upgrade to Windows 11 has begun rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs, and PCs that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 will start to become available for purchase on October 5. A prompt to upgrade to Windows 11 will come to newer devices first, with all eligible devices to receive their updates by next summer, according to Gear Patrol.

Windows 11 has higher technical requirements than Windows 10, which will be deprecated in 2025. Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 or earlier iterations. Machines will need to have a 64-bit CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and have Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2 or later enabled.

Aaron Woodman, General Manager of Windows Marketing at Microsoft, told The Verge, "We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022."

Microsoft will continue to support Windows 10 until October 14, 2025. Read an expanded version.
