Metron and Windows 11
Microsoft has slated the release of Windows 11 for October 5th, 2021. At this time, we here at Metron Support Services do not recommend upgrading to Windows 11 on any of your Metron PC(s).
Although Windows 11 looks to be a solid upgrade from Windows 10, there is no reason to rush to upgrade your existing Metron system as there could be compatibility issues between your computer and acquisition hardware. In addition, Windows 10 will continue to be supported by Microsoft until October 2025. There’s very little to gain by updating to Windows 11 at this time and a lot to lose should the upgrade fail.
Windows 11, like every other previous new version of Windows, demands more computer horsepower than the earlier version. What’s different with the Windows 11 upgrade is the system requirements are a bit steeper as Microsoft has decided to support only relatively recent CPUs. Therefore, unlike previous new releases of Windows (7, 8.1, 10), you will need a computer manufactured in the last 3-4 years to run Windows 11. Computers that are only a couple of years old may be good upgrade candidates to Windows 11, but 3+ years old may become unusably slow or unusable altogether after the upgrade.
