Microsoft kicks out “old” PC from pre-testing Windows 11

Update (2021-09-02):

For just over a month now, members of the Windows Insider Program have been able to test the pre-release version of Windows 11, but now the requirements for which computers are allowed to be used are being tightened.

In the future, only newer computers that meet the official system requirements will be allowed, which means that those who have an older computer may switch back to Windows 10 to access updates and new drivers.

If your computer does not meet the requirements, you will be notified when you use Windows Update. You can see what it looks like in the following Twitter posts from Betawiki:

The sharp version of Windows 11 will be released on October 5, something you can read more about here.

Previously (2021-07-30):

Microsoft has now released the first one betan for Windows 11 (Build 22000-100).

Previously, only a developer version of Microsoft’s next operating system was available that was recommended for advanced users.

Beta is available for all pre-testers in the Windows Insider Program. This provided they have compatible hardware. Anyone interested in joining the pre-program can register here.
