Microsoft now recommends that we change our PC if it is not compatible with Windows 11. Seriously?

Upgrade to Windows 11, by Microsoft

It may sound like a joke, but unfortunately it is not. Unfortunately for Windows users, since those of us who have been on Linux for years are not affected. Microsoft It seems determined to lose users, although I don't think it will succeed, or not many. They have recently presented a controversial function that some refer to as "Spyware as a service", a Recall that will keep a record of absolutely everything we do on the computer, although with nuances. The last thing is to invite us to change PC.

Just this Wednesday I met up with an acquaintance to see what's wrong with his PC. According to what he told me, he received a notice some time ago asking him to update Windows 11, he rejected it, now he wants to go up and he can't. From what it seems, he skipped the option without his equipment being compatible, something similar to the news we bring you here today. And Microsoft is so determined that we start using all its services that it even appears in Windows 10 that we go up to 11 even if the computer cannot.

Microsoft: aren't you already overdoing it?

It was Windows Latest who posted the captures and more detailed information. The worst is the part that talks about "A new journey with Windows":

«We want to thank you for your loyalty as a Windows 10 customer. As Windows 10 end of support approaches, we're here to support you on your PC journey.

Your PC is not eligible to upgrade to Windows 11, but will continue to receive Windows 10 fixes and security patches until support ends on October 14, 2025.

Learn more about how you can prepare for the transition to Windows 11«.

The annoying messages They are just that, annoying, but you can live with them. What I think is going too far is sending those messages to unsupported computers inviting users to change PCs. Something never seen. Not even Apple has gone that far, since when it decides to abandon a system it continues to release patches for years, and in the end it leaves us alone. I don't think it's the best either, but Microsoft's thing goes beyond dark brown.

From LinuxAdictos We would be delighted to welcome you. If you decide to continue on Windows, that's up to you, but you can do it by following what is explained in articles like the one in how to install Windows 11 on virtual machines.
