Windows 11 23H2 update, expected in the latter part of the year, has quite a few updates and possibly a strange code name (ZINC). So if you would lie a quick run down, without the ads we seem to get more of now on YouTube, read on.
What to expect – more detail with Pictures & Videos later in this post
A quote from Top Gun maybe, but many broadband providers are offering superfast connections these days. So why are we not noticing it? Well the speed you get at the device depends on more than the Megabits that your provider allows you. One thing that you may have some control over is your device Network Interface.
I’m sure most techies get asked this question from time to time. Well, the simple answer is YES YOU CAN, BUT….. Both of these Operating Systems were considered a big step forward at the time and were loved by users. Also, as techies, we may be asked to support them. However, care must be taken to avoid problems. Be careful, and if you can’t, buy a PC that can run the latest OS of your choice or stay off the Net. Do your online banking and shopping on your ‘phone or a secure PC.
There are a few scam downloads for Windows 11 installation media, so best avoided. However, techies will want to install the new OS to test it and the best way to do this, the only way currently according to Microsoft, is to install Windows 10 and then join the Windows Insider Program.
I have tried using a Virtual PC and it isn’t very useful, so I got another SSD for my main PC, installed Win 10 on it and joined the program.
You will have seen many news items about Windows 7 reaching end of life but as techies we should probably be more concerned with Server 2008 and Exchange Server 2010 which were also dragged into the recycle bin this month.
