Microsoft is now rolling out the Windows 11 upgrade to more eligible Windows devices as part of a phased rollout designed to deliver a smooth upgrade experience.

"The availability of Windows 11 has been increased and we are leveraging our latest generation machine learning model to offer the upgrade to an expanded set of eligible devices," Microsoft said in an update to the Windows health dashboard.

"We recommend that you upgrade your devices to Windows 11 to take advantage of the latest features and advanced protections from security threats."

According to previously available information, the company estimates that all eligible Windows 10 devices will be offered the upgrade to the latest version by mid-2022.

Microsoft released Windows 11 worldwide on October 5 and is now rolling it out via Windows Update to new Windows 10 devices and those pre-loaded with Windows 11.

Windows 10 users can upgrade to Windows 11 via Windows Update as long as their computers come with compatible hardware.

To install Windows 11 on eligible devices, they also need to run Windows 10 2004 and later and have installed at least the September 2021 updates.

I took it for a spin. I liked it, but I went back to Windows 10. I didn't notice any bugs and my 2-year-old ASUS Notebook ran well. I just didn't want to wait until I couldn't rollback. I think it's 10 days until you can no longer do so. It wasn't particularly complicated to use, but it was different enough that I couldn't always remember where some things were located. I think once I hear from others on the stableness of Windows 11, I may install it again.

Due to "positive" feedback, Windows 11 rollout is about to get a whole lot faster​

For those who are eager to get on board the Windows 11 train, Microsoft just announced some pretty positive news. In a blog post, the company has stated that it will be accelerating the Windows 11 rollout from today as it is pleased with how the update rollout process has gone so far.
Today, based on the positive rollout update experience and user feedback we have seen to date, we are advancing the pace of the rollout faster than we previously anticipated, and are now making the Windows 11 upgrade more broadly available to eligible Windows 10 devices.

Microsoft HealthCheck program ruled out my 4 years old AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3200MHZ processor from the list of eligibles, but ,all other parameters being ok, I decided ten days ago to try and install Windows11 in a 105 GB SSD partition alongside my Windows10 partition of 140GB. I wanted to try it and reasoned out that if it refused install due to Ryzen5 I had the chance perhaps to go Virtual with it, but,rather unexpectedly, install succeeded like a breeze, its easiness impressed me.
I had spent many days investigating about AMD updates and MS vetos, but it was nothing of the sort and W11 works fine,downloading all necessary updates. Both W10 and 11 are fine dual booting.
I will see in the next week if i'll keep both or go for the newer one or stay with my already hardened and secure W10.
I just wonder why they had to scare people uselessly ,as if fear was lacking these days.
