Should You Upgrade To Windows 11?

Updated: Oct 6

A new version of Windows is coming! It's called Windows 11 and Microsoft's official release date is Windows is October 5th.

What does this mean for you?

If you have a supported PC (which is most PC's made in the last 3 years), you might be offered an update through Windows Update that upgrades you to Windows 11. It should go through like any other update, but when you restart Windows, you will get the "new look".

What's Changing?

In this first release it seems that most of the changes are visual. It looks "prettier" (subjective!), but it does have the effect that using a touch screen is easier.

Should I Upgrade?

We're saying "not yet". Windows 10 continues to be supported very well in business, so there doesn't seem to be any reason to upgrade (this isn't NASA and you don't need to be the first to the moon "because it's hard" !). For Sir Technology customers, we are actively taking steps to delay this on your computers so that your work is not interrupted. For other users, you might just want to keep an eye on what updates are being offered through Windows Update before accepting all of them (which is what most of us do!).
