    According to Microsoft’s lifecycle website, the company will officially support Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise, and Windows 10 Education editions until October 14, 2025. At that point, all regular desktop editions of Windows 10 will reach end-of-life status, which means that they’ll no longer receive security updates from Microsoft.

    They also have a handy little tool you can run that will determine if your current hardware can handle Windows 11 requirements. If it can then it says it will let you know when it's available. That sounds like it installs nagware on your computer. How thoughtful of them. But don't worry, I'm sure they'll have plenty of other opportunities to install nags along with future updates like they did with Win 7/8 to Win 10 "reminders".

    Here are the system req's for Win 11...

    Hmm, the taskbar in Win 11 will only be allowed on the bottom of the screen. I've had it on the left side for the last twenty years and see no reason to ever want to change that.

    Taskbar functionality is changed including:

    People is no longer present on the Taskbar.

    Some icons may no longer appear in the System Tray (systray) for upgraded devices including
    previous customizations.

    Alignment to the bottom of the screen is the only location allowed.

    Apps can no longer customize areas of the Taskbar.

    That's gonna be rough, because I use Classic/Open Shell on my Win10 machines. Heck, I still have a Win7 box with ESU updates for legacy stuff. Sigh.

    It appears that any device running on an Intel 7th Generation (Skylake) CPU or earlier will also trigger that compatibility check. Even some 8th Generation Intel processors (code-named Kaby Lake) are ineligible.
    So any computer bought before 2017 (or afterwards with an even slightly older processor) won't be compatible with Windows 11.

    This gif reminds me of MacOS. The window resizing and icon placements.
