Why you should wait to install or update to Windows 11

Windows 11 has been officially released and that means Windows 10 users should start seeing the option to update for free showing up in Windows Update. 

New operating systems are exciting and I’m sure you’re also eager to try it out but you might be best to wait. As Windows 11 rolls out we have been fielding questions about what that means for their PCs, and whether they should be concerned about getting the upgrade. Here is what you should know, it has some interesting new features, but it doesn’t offer most of us meaningful improvements over Windows 10. Here’s why you shouldn’t stress about upgrading right away.

Windows 11 is incomplete

The biggest reason you shouldn’t rush out and try to install Windows 11 yourself is that the operating system isn’t feature-complete yet. While it’s common to see software updated with patches and new features post-release, Windows 11 is definitely not ready to be used for a lot of computers.

Windows 11 isn’t a huge upgrade from Windows 10

The other big reason you shouldn’t stress about upgrading to Windows 11 is the fact that for most people, the update probably doesn’t offer meaningful improvements over Windows 10.

Windows 10 is going to be around for a while longer

Microsoft might have already set an end of support date for Windows 10 but it is not until the 14th October 2025, which for most people that will require a computer an upgrade in the meantime.

Always speak to us first

Upgrading to Windows 11 might not be compatible for your computer depending on specifications, but if it is it would be best to speak to us first before upgrading. A lot of software needs to be built and reprogrammed to run properly on Windows 11, and there is no guarantee that your software will ever work with it, which could mean the software your business runs on might stop working after the upgrade.
