  • Microsoft confirms that more Windows 10 devices will get Windows 11.
  • According to the company current rollout has a high positive rate.
  • Windows 11 still has problems that need fixing.

Microsoft to further expand the availability of the Windows 11 upgrade to more computers. Although the new version of Windows became ready for download on October 5, only a select number of devices received it through Windows Update. On October 29, the company began the rollout on more computers. And on November 16, the health dashboard website revealed that Windows 11 is ready for even more devices that meet the minimum system requirements.

Despite the known issues and bugs that users have been reporting, Microsoft says that the initial rollout shows a “high rate of positive update experiences and user feedback for eligible devices.” And based on this data, the company will proceed to speed up the rollout to more eligible devices running Windows 10.

Microsoft will continue to cautiously oversee the rollout performance, keep training its machine learning model to provide a smooth upgrade experience, and update the health dashboard website to provide information as the company further increases availability over time.

Although there have been several issues during the initial rollout, Microsoft has been proactively mitigating and resolving most problems quickly. However, Windows 11 still has a compatibility issue with Oracle VirtualBox, and there is a new known issue with a specific Intel SST driver. Until the problem is fixed, affected devices won’t automatically receive the option to upgrade to Windows 11 through Windows Update.

Also, Microsoft is working on a big cumulative update that is expected to improve the overall experience and fix a lot of issues. However, if you think of upgrading your computer, it’s still early, and you should wait a little longer. The best option at the time of this writing is to stay on Windows 10 and wait until Windows 11 becomes fully available in 2022.
