Would you rather have Windows 11 or a computer OS that cannot be attacked with ransomware?

Will Windows 11 be more secure? If not then should Microsoft be held liable for the lack of security?

Is this article true and why don't these companies invest in better computers for their businesses?

@TheCobbler,
I advise not counting on that article being true. Pride comes before a fall.

Always be vigilant and back up your data.

It is unlikely that there will ever be a Windows 11.

Microsoft changed their system with Windows 10. Now every spring and fall they come out with a new revision of Windows 10.

Now, instead of major jumps to a new operating system, Windows 10 just gradually evolves over time.

The spring 2021 revision just came out a couple weeks ago. It was a minor revision however and didn't change much.

The next revision, coming this fall, is expected to make more significant changes to Windows 10.

@TheCobbler,
Lord all you need to do is to keep very frequency write only backups of all your important data and so must for random ware. Along with completely off line backups for the super important date.

Data storage is now very cheap indeed.

@oralloy,
Some Windows insiders say we will be hearing an announcement in the next two weeks from Microsoft about Windows 11, a new OS that has been in the works for nearly 6 years.

https://www.cnet.com/a/img/gOhW1m7FIyXidPUXyWG96FAhmdo=/1200x675/2021/06/03/16eb8ce7-d883-473d-9c80-d34e2c54eb48/windows-10-logo.jpg

New Windows logo, notice the reflection on the ground looks like an 11. The horizontal partition in the center of the Window has been removed.

@TheCobbler,
They'll be announcing the "fall 2021" revision of Windows 10 about that time.

I suppose they can call that Windows 11 if they want to, for marketing purposes or something.

I guess we're about to learn whether the "fall 2021" revision of Windows 10 is going to be called Windows 11.

It might be an inauspicious naming if so. Every other version of Windows doesn't do so great.

Windows 95 - hit
Windows 98 - miss
Windows 98 SE - hit
Windows ME - miss
Windows XP - hit
Windows Vista - miss
Windows 7 - hit
Windows 8 - miss
Windows 10 - hit
Windows 11 - ???

It seems that is a yes.

Mandatory TPM huh. That's going to go over well. Don't encrypt your disks if you think your computer might ever break down.

@oralloy,
It appears that Windows 11 is an attempt to force people to stop using insecure hardware.

In addition to the requirements for mandatory TPM, no Intel CPU more than 3 years old is approved for Windows 11. No AMD CPU more than 2 years old is approved.

This will exclude most CPUs that are vulnerable to the Meltdown exploit, omitting the need for a software patch that slows down the computer.

They say that are going to keep supporting Windows 10 until the end of 2025 for those of us who can't afford to buy a new computer right now.
